From the very moment Styling You The Label became more than an idea, my intention was to design and create clothes that helped you get up, get dressed and take on the day with a minimum of fuss.
I wanted to bring you pieces that worked back with each other - yes, a capsule concept but more than that. I wanted you to confidently reach into your wardrobe every day and see Styling You The Label pieces hanging there, knowing that they would work FOR you, not against you, as you went about your day.
The working week can be frantic enough without stressing about the what-to-wear question. And in 2019, none of us could have predicted that our Monday-Friday wardrobes would become a mash up of work-from-home and office wear.
This hybrid work wardrobe seems to be one that we'll be embracing for some time to come - or forever. Corporate casual was becoming a thing before the pandemic, so I can't see it disappearing any time soon. The key to building this hybrid work wardrobe starts with quality, versatile basics that can be dressed up for the office or down for home or even the weekend and travel.
It's a concept I've long embraced with my own wardrobe, having worked from home for the major part of 14 years. Having these key foundation pieces in my wardrobe means I've always got something to wear.
In bringing you our spring-summer 2022 Work Edit, we're taking you back to basics for your hybrid work-robe with more of the easy-care technical fabric you love, including a new top style and a neutral colour that looks incredible on everyone; more linen; a return of our original summer/office blazer shape and best-selling cropped technical pant; and much-requested navy pieces in two of our best-selling styles.
I design each piece with purpose. I want each piece sit comfortably on you, whether sitting at a desk all day or on your feet in front of a classroom. And I want you to feel confident and put together all day long, even when the temperatures heat up or you've got to jump on your sixth video call of the day.
