There’s something very chic about a blazer. No matter what you pair it with, the look always portrays a chic and classy appearance.
Our Audrey jacket is specifically tailored in a way that flatter tall women's figure. It comes in black. Number one code of fashion: black will always be the new black. Do not deny it.

A match made in heaven

A match made in heaven

The oh-so-famous “don’t look back, you are not going that way” quote might not exactly be quite accurate and correct when it comes to the fashion industry. Whether we like it or not, this industry never ceases to draw inspiration from the past. The Seventies trend, and wide leg trousers in particular, are one of the key trends that will make a noticeable comeback this Spring/Summer season.

Steal the style

Steal the style

My Sunday afternoon tradition consists usually of purchasing – after a long fulfilling meal – numerous fashion magazines. I do some light reading in order to relax and catch up on the latest trends after a long week of work. This weekend, I could not help but notice that pictures of A-list celebs in blazers were bombarding all the publications I was skimming through. What was also noticeable was that most of the celebrities were tall, and had rocked the blazer accordingly to their height. I had to tear the picture below, illustrating the following, and thus decided to write about it.

Benefits of the Audrey Jacket

As promised, we have returned to you with a follow up of the previous feature on the Audrey Jacket, also known as tuxedo, blazer or smoking for women. If that garment benefits of one too many denominations – certainly not enough given its importance – it is because it is a crucial item for women to have in their closets.

The Audrey Jacket: Your very own Le Smoking

In 1966, the Algerian born designer Yves Saint Laurent dropped the bomb in the history of fashion that revolutionized womenswear and redefined the female gender forevermore. The creation of “Le Smoking” was a turning point that marked the power of women in society and is now a quintessential staple that every woman should have in her closet.

One Seven Three style advice: We swear by the Alexa Trench Coat

One Seven Three style advice: We swear by the Alexa Trench Coat

As a One Seven Eight woman, I do feel with those that struggle to find outfits that flatter this kind of height. One of the main garments that would actually flatter such body types is the trench coat. Models and tall celebrities are sporting it everywhere: form Miranda Kerr, to Alexia Chung, to Anne Hathaway, to Taylor Swift etc. – the list goes on and on. With winter slowly drawing to a close (because you know how London weather is not exactly the most predictable one), you are probably thinking what would be a good garment to wear in spring that would flatter my height.

FAST FASHION CATCHES UP WITH VENICE

FAST FASHION CATCHES UP WITH VENICE

Authentic VS imitation has been an ongoing debate for years now. The fast fashion trend has gained mainstream momentum and has hit most countries and cities. Amongst these places, the magical city of Venice, once known for its artisanal handwork and craftsmanship. It seems that the temptation of buying a five euros made in I-don’t-know-where mask has won over tourists who have substituted the authentic for the imported.

INTO THE WORLD OF BESPOKE TAILORING

INTO THE WORLD OF BESPOKE TAILORING

On a gloomy and rainy Monday in London, I meet with German bespoke tailoring expert Paolo Rossamachi. Sipping on my latte on the 5th floor of Harvey Nichols, I wait for him, my eyes on the lookout for a man in his mid-twenties in a well-tailored suit. No longer than five minutes later he appears. My expectations were met. Wearing a pair of matching blue trousers with a white and blue-striped shirt, a turquoise blue cardigan, leather camel gloves and an impeccable navy blue coat with a pink scarf tucked in, this man made me look bad in my black shirt tucked into my purple peplum skirt with my Manolo heels, and it took me over an hour to handpick my outfit du jour earlier today.
