Tailored Women

There’s nothing sexier than seeing a man in a bespoke suit, head to toe in perfect mohair, worsted and tweed fabrics. But what about women? A suit represents power, status and responsibility, and within a world of modern day equality, we see more and more women coming forward in bespoke suits, making their own mark on sartorial history.

Power dressing was of the 1980’s we are now talking tailored, well fitted, feminine silhouettes. The Androgynous trend has come and gone over the decades, but here we aren’t talking trends, we are talking about tradition. Three piece suits with pocket watches and walking canes, not for men, but for women.

Here are some inspirational images over the decades which I find most appropriate…
