LEATHER WRAP MAXI SKIRT
Nothing welcomes the arrival of autumn quite like leather, and this midi skirt (which comes in khaki, cream and tan) is the ultimate in transitional styling ease. In an ever-flattering wrap effect, complete with a blazer and long boots for office-to-evening appeal.
HALTER NECK JERSEY MINI DRESS
An instant classic, this halter neck dress comes in a jersey material that seamlessly skims the form. The perfect addition to party wardrobes, it has summer appeal paired with stiletto sandals, and can be transitioned into the cooler period with the accompaniment of boots and a leather jacket.
LEATHER MULTIWAY ZIP DETAIL BLAZER
An effortless two-in-one investment, create multiple outfit solutions with this premium leather blazer. Whether you prefer an oversized (size up if so) or more tailored fit, it can be taken from a more formal to edgier approach by turning into a cropped jacket, nodding to the modernistic moto trend.
LEATHER BLAZER MIDI DRESS
Every modern wardrobe needs a blazer dress, and this signature piece champions both sophistication and subtle sultriness. Boasting a double-breasted detail on the waist, it sits not too high above the knee, providing it with both modern office and evening appeal.
LEATHER PLEATED MIDI DRESS
Playful and powerful, this pleated mini dress makes a fun style statement. Cinched at the waist, the skirt provides movement creating a flattering fit. Elevated on its own or layered with a high neck jumper underneath for a more modest approach, it comes in three different colours so you can tailor to your preferences.
ITALIAN WOOL MILITARY COAT
Again made from finely spun Italian wool, a military coat looks minimalistic ally stylish with a premium quality. Trimmed on the lapel for an elevated flourish, the double-breasted buttons complete it with style.
ITALIAN CITRUS DOUBLE BREASTED JACKET
As citrus undoubtedly takes its place as the print of the summer, this jubilantly optimistic style radiates the positive mood of the summer months. More than just a trend piece, a blazer truly achieves sartorial excellence, and this style has a place both as a weekend style alongside jeans or layered over a midi dress, or even to the workplace over a more muted design.
STRETCH LEATHER TAILORED TROUSERS
Invest in a pair of leather trousers now and love them for many years to come. This particular style comes in a stretch fit, masterfully fitting the form for comfort and ease of movement. Slightly cropped on the ankle, they look their best alongside heeled court shoes which elongate the leg.
COTTON TWEED BELTED CHECK COAT
The ultimate in transitional outerwear, this longline trench coat is crafted in cotton – making it ultra-lightweight yet still warming. Crafted with an ever-stylish checked design, wearing loose without the belt provides a more casual feel, or tied up makes it the perfect office addition.
LEATHER SHRUNKEN JACKET
The perfect all-season piece, this shrunken leather jacket is a great spring to autumn layer. Slightly cropped on the sleeves, it’s an easy throw on with a light spring dress. Smaller on the waist to hug the figure, it flatters whilst providing luxury.
COMPACT STRETCH BUTTON PENCIL DRESS
With versatility at the heart, this sleek and sophisticated strapless pencil dress combines signature compact stretch fabric with a row of tonal buttons from top to bottom. To make more modest, look to a figure hugging jersey polo neck underneath, or a shirt as a refined workwear option.
