Tailoring does not always have to be sharp cuts and padded shoulders to have impact.
This new collection, loved by Yasmin Le Bon, is slinky, soft and very feminine, which is a whole other way of wearing tailored matching pieces. “This new soft tailoring hits another level of effortless chic”, Yasmin says. “I love the suit – it’s cool, sexy, confident and comfortable – what a combination! And yes I’m getting it in three colours”.
The softness of the look contrasts with the smartness of the matching suit-i-ness and voila! Understated grown-up elegance is yours.
The cleverness is in the cut and the fabric. Made from a beautiful satin backed crepe, there is weight without heaviness.
The satin backing is slippy and sensual and heavenly to wear so there is never that uptight, done-up feeling you can sometimes get with more traditional tailored pieces. The cut is designed to skim, fitting neatly where it needs to but allowing the fabric do the work with the fall of the jacket or trouser…
Here are our five easy pieces:
The double breasted jacket has all the classic tailoring references. With satin-covered buttons on the front and at the cuff, soft lapels and a single vent at the back.
Wear with nothing underneath, as Yasmin Le Bon, and with the tailored crepe flared trouser.
The tailored trouser. Quietly flared with two side pockets and two on the back with bound edges.
The tailored dress. A sleeveless A-line shift dress with a dropped skirt that has two side pleats that have a great kick to them.
Cover up and throw the tailored DBJ on your shoulders.
Rainbow-pleated skirt – Rainbow pleats are a joy to wear, they move and swish with great style and this one is no exception. It’s perfect with our gossamer knit cashmere too.
Neat and soft, a single breasted jacket that’s simply cut and flatteringly shaped. The crepe ruffle detail on the jacket and cuff is just enough to give you the stylish edge, whether you wear it with the matching trousers, skirt, a pair of jeans or indeed culottes as shown here…
