Eight Great Pieces

Eight Great Pieces

The new year is here at last, and we’re embracing the opportunity to start fresh and reset.

 

With Creative Director Emily Smith, we’ve curated an edit of eight pieces from our Modern Essentials collection that will form a strong foundation for the year ahead. Anchored in a pure palette of black and white, they’re designed to stand on their own and seamlessly layer into every closet.

There’s the beautifully minimalist black dress. The precision tailored jacket. The modern trouser. Pared-down, timeless, and meticulously crafted, these are the pieces you’ll return to month after month, season after season. Your 2019 wardrobe begins here.

1/

The Sophisticated Blouse

A minimalist masterpiece, the blouse of the moment is imbued with a pared-down profile and engineered in our signature Finesse Crepe, a seasonless fabric prized for its rich texture, exquisite drape and resistance to wrinkling.

The Wide-Leg Trouser

This sophisticated pair is sleek, sweeping and statement-making. It cuts a classic figure worn with a crisp white shirt, or pairs beautifully with a jacket for a feminine update on menswear-inspired suiting.

The Relaxed Jacket

An alternative to a sweater or suit jacket in our bestselling Finesse Crepe, this sport-inspired layering essential is designed to be worn open, adding an easy element of structure to every look.

“I think of these Modern Essentials as the ultimate palate cleanser. They’re seasonless and designed to live in harmony with the rest of your wardrobe. The look is so sophisticated and effortless.”

—Emily Smith, Creative Director

The New Black Dress

The little black dress is reimagined for 2019 with an ingenious topstitched trompe l’oeil technique. It’s an alluring effect that doesn’t compromise the design’s effortless lines.
