ASCENO was founded in 2014 by two friends, Lauren Leask and Poppy Sexton-Wainwright, with the intent to create a collection of wardrobe essentials perfectly curated to take a woman effortlessly through all aspects of her day.

As a brand, they strive for women to feel good in their clothes and to wear them like a second skin. The ASCENO collections encapsulates the relaxed elegance of their woman, allowing her to be the purest versions of herself – elegant, relaxed and effortless.

The designs are modern yet timeless. Collections are refreshingly versatile, blurring the line between lounge and ready-to-wear. Items can be worn both day and night, city and beach. The product offering includes silk loungewear and ready-to-wear, relaxed cotton and linen beachwear, and textured swim. Silhouettes are laid-back and worn with ease.

ASCENO’s collections have appeared in the wardrobes of fashion industry’s most notable names from Victoria Beckham to Aimee Song to Leonie Hanne and Arizona Muse. The brand's latest offering in lounge and beachwear has been featured in top global publications including Vogue, The Sunday Times Style, Tatler and Grazia.
