The trench coat is a timeless design beautifully tailored with classic detailing.

When designing this piece, we wanted to retain all of the elements synonymous with a ‘trench’.

A piece that will take you from work to the weekend. Trinny, is just that, versatile. Using our premium faux suede allowed us to create a luxury feel, but as it’s machine washable, it’s easy-to-wear. The mink colour allows you to style with colour pops, or patterns.

Francesca Faux Suede Jacket

We’ve got a bit of a soft spot for Francesca. Simple in its design, the Francesca Faux Suede Jacket will be an essential cover up.

Perfect for every season. Again, we’ve gone for a soft colour, making it perfect for spring and summer. Add lighter tones, such as pale blues and neutrals. We’ve paired Francesca with the Robell Floral Trousers and lightweight knits for an elegant look.

The Technical Bit: What is faux suede made from?

Designed to mimic the look of real suede, our faux suede has the composition of 95% polyester and 5% spandex. To make our faux suede fabric that little more special, we opted to use a knitted backed fabric as opposed to bonded. Because the fabric is knitted and not bonded, there are two major benefits:

  1. Our faux suede can be machine washed at 30 degrees, and
  2. It's much softer to wear.

Our fabric is also 380 grams. This makes it heavier than normal high street faux suede, enabling the garment to drape attractively.
