Launched by a couple - Inge Onsea and Esfan Eghtessadi - in 1999, Essentiel is a luxury clothing brand. What started off as a love story between the two, ended up as a brand. As they both come from different backgrounds yet having a close affinity to fashion, they started their brand with the idea of making something simple but essential. Their first collection, launched in their apartment - was a line of 4 different styles of t-shirts available in 20 colors. The t-shirts sold like hot cakes and Essentiel was born. As Esfan concentrates his efforts in the brand's business, Inge leads the design team, sometimes travelling the world but is found most of the time in her hometown Antwerp, in Belgium. Today, there are 42 Essentiel stores and the brand can be found in 40 countries, sold through more than 800 multi-brand stores.
