Together with the introduction of Vietnamese version of Elle magazine in November 2010, Lagardère Active, the proud mother of Elle magazine, in cooperation with PLI, attempted to bring consumer experience of Vietnam to a new level, bringing exclusive designs with a French flair to Vietnamese domestic market.

Elle style hinges on four values: Proximity, Open-mindness, Freedom, Optimism.

Elle is feminine, curious, creative, fond of experiments of new styles with distinguished confidence and elegance of the City of Light. Elle brings runway designs to everyday life without losing the magical touch of fashion.

Offering full range of clothing: denim, T-shirt, knitwear, dresses of latest trends, Elle makes the perfect choice to go to work, go out, even for weekend activities such as gardening or redecorating walls with latest pattern from Elle Décor, such activities in a day of an interesting young woman.
