The brand name Le Sillage comes from French which means "follow, start with" and expresses their initial intention to create an independent brand in pursuit of their original ideas. In contemporary China's clothing market, clothing brands with small profits but quick turnover and almost pure commercial purposes are still the main ones, but lack of design. The world has begun to develop rapidly. In this era of mass production, we should find our own style and make efforts accordingly before we become machines completely. In such a big environment, under the incomprehension of the people around them, the controversial people firmly established Le Sillage.
