It has to be said that 2012 has proved to be a phenomenal year for Britain – a year in which the Queen celebrated 60 years of royal reign and gave us a quintessentially British bank holiday; the build-up to the Olympics and the Games themselves provided us and the rest of the world with a myriad of events and spectacles showcasing the best of British talent and culture; and last but not least the Paralympics, which will culminate this historic period in time. It is with this sense of pride that we celebrate British fashion as a troop of born and bred designers displayed such innovation in design, namely Stella McCartney who designed Team GB’s kit.
It’s really no secret that the mastermind behind one of the most respected labels in the world that demands such reverence thanks to impeccable design that time and time again reinvents the ‘Stella McCartney’ woman making her relevant and yet always in touch with the organic concept that has carried the brand all along. For AW12 McCartney has dreamed up and accomplished a beautiful collection which reflects ‘Britishness’ in a subtle and elegant manner. Tweeds, royal blues and baroque touches run through out, making for compelling ready-to-wear. Which is why we have chosen the short Tweed Jacket as our most desired piece this week.
This jacket has us literally swooning. It’s rather sturdy fit and padded shoulders gives it a rather empowering structure, as does the delicate weave of gold, while the black and white jersey varsity styled collar gives it a touch of laid-back appeal making it a versatile piece; a day-to-night piece, if you will. It’s as much a statement jacket as it can be a staple with a twist that will certainly beat any tweed that you may find.
So here it is. The must-have. The most desired piece thus far. The one and only jacket we all want for the coming season. This week, we’re taking it back to basics with the See by Chloe stone double-breasted wool jacket.
Shirt – Acne. Trousers – Citizens of Humanity. Shoes – McQ Alexander McQueen. All coming online soon.
It’s a wardrobe staple that will see you through many winters due to its classic cut, versatility and neutral tone, finishing off any outfit with the quintessential understated elegance of the See by Chloe brand.
Style it with a pair of leather trousers, killer heeled boots and a silk blouse for an enviable day-to-night ensemble.
