As young women living in London, one of the world's fashion capitals, we continue to notice a lack of tailoring in both fast-fashion and sustainable clothes. It has become extremely hard to find items that fit you perfectly because of the massive scale at which items are being produced.
The lack of tailoring has also come hand-in-hand with a return to basic genderless lines. Although we are incredibly proud to be part of a generation that is very open-minded, supportive and equal towards women and men, we still crave clothes that accentuate the female figure. By creating items of clothing tailored to feminine shapes, we envision a brand inspired by vintage details.
We cannot help but fall in love when we look back at female icons such as Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn, status symbols of delicacy, elegance and femininity, yet empowered. We imagine our clients just like them, independent and elegant city women (very much wearing coats like The Joanna and Anna Coat).
Fast fashion manufacturers and designers noticed how much easier and faster it would be to drop the tailoring in their designs and because of this, clothes have lost their shape. Instead, our clothes focus on being staple, tailored, long-lasting products that unites vintage with modern styles.
Discover the fabrics we use and why we use them
The majority of the fabrics used in our designs are of natural supplies, coming from plants or unharmed animals. Their colour usually comes from the original source itself (the case with alpaca wool) or we use suppliers that use natural dyes in the process. We try our best to avoid chemicals and dyes that harm the environment, however sometimes it can be hard to really see and know what is in the fabrics we order.
