girls in suits 010 Max Mara

so yeahhhh ive been away busy suiting and booting myself so what better way to return than with my next girls in suits write up!!

always at the top of the chic tailoring game, italian luxury fashion house Max Mara have been designing for women since being established in 1951 // somehow the brand has managed to keep driving forward power dressing for women in an ever changing landscape // cuts are kept modern and sharp whilst still maintaining femininity, something i am always conscious of when power dressing //

ian griffiths, the creative director at max mara has been at the helm for a number of years now // somehow he’s continued with the brands timeless strong woman aesthetic and kept them relevant and forward thinking //

few snippets of my favourite looks from the last few Fall seasons below // too many looks to choose from but here im focusing on suiting predominantly //

hell yeah //

girls in suits 009 palmer//harding

the next in the female tailoring series comes from Levi Palmer and Matthew Harding // relatively new on the scene launched by the central saint martins pair in 2012 the brand is going from strength to strength //

a bit different to the others in the ‘girls in suits’ series, this is tailoring at its most relaxed and flowing // in fact palmer//harding push the boundaries and our relationship with suiting as they deconstruct and rework traditional garments into new found shapes and experiment with pattern cutting and draping techniques //

i for one am a huge fan of their innovative and contrasting approach to modern tailoring // often mixing the harsh with the soft, feminine amongst the masculine, structured with the flowing //

their cohesive collections of everyday wear littered with more statement pieces are a feast for the eyes //

certainly a brand to add to the work wardrobe for those days when you want to push chic fashion vibes in the office rather than power suiting //

gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous //

girls in suits 008 Peter Do

next in the female tailoring series is newly formed new-york based Peter Do // trained by none other than phoebe philo Do’s own label has a lovely minimalism and chic tailoring promising to flatter all shapes and sizes //

in his first season Do honed his aspiration for the label “It’s about building a modern uniform and wardrobe for women.” // i adore the asymmetric look of many of the suits && the sleek layers // the craftsmanship and quality looks superb //

the designers own fabric ‘spacer’ crops up alot // a kind of combination of mesh sponge and neoprene which he has been refining over his career //

also a huge fan of his large heart shaped open locket earrings //

any of these suits would be the perfect glow up to your office style // power dressing on point // you can buy the latest peter do collection from his website and netaporter //

girls in suits 005 ralph & russo

partners tamara ralph and michael russo show us how to do suits right //

the spring 2019 coutre collection was tailoring galore with cuts and colours to die for // particularly like the blazer and trousers combo with flowing skirting // effortlessly chic //

the detailing on these pieces is truly beautiful with embellishments oozing elegance on the catwalk //

looking further back the 2018 fall rtw collection was similarly exemplary // in more muted wintery tones and textures but never compromising on style //

i cant wait to be able to pick up a suit for work from R&R // power dressing !! //

girls in suits 004 Tibi

Tibi Spring rtw collection was a masterclass in gender neutral tailoring // long flowing shapes && soft pastel tones these pieces are perfect for spring workwear //

simple and minimal cuts make for effortless and chic looks // designer amy smilovic even got a couple of male models in for the show blurring the boundaries of unisex tailoring even further and i’m all for it!! //

simple and modern // youthful yet sophisticated //

even the shorts suit looks great tempted to give it a try //
