Fabric story

We found this special roll in the warehouse of one of the Italian mills who used to manufacture fabrics for local high end brands as well as some of the Japanese clients. We absolutely loved its off-white colour and texture.

Garment care

We took this silhouette from a classic chesterfield coat. The coat was arguably named after Phillip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield. The Chesterfield was interesting as a fashion innovation because, unlike earlier coats, it did not have a waist seam, and was cut quite loosely around the body. This meant that Chesterfields were true overcoats: they could be put on over most other garments, and taken off easily when indoors.

Their introduction into women’s wardrobes, not surprisingly, also saw a huge adaptation in the coats style as they were re-structured to fit female bodies. The loose coat fit perfectly with the more active outdoors lifestyle women were beginning to adopt.

We have further modernised the style with a slightly dropped shoulder and a slimmer body.
