1940's Separates || Trousers & Driving Gloves



Glamour girls can be luxuriously stylish in trousers, as proven by classic femmes like Veronica Lake, Jean Harlow, Ginger Rogers, and style queen Marlene Dietrich.  We made our own bespoke trousers in our atelier, benchmade as always to my precise measurements. With an authentic single pleat & fuller leg, cinched high waist, functioning braces tabs, and hand-pressed crisp creases, every detail was made with the techniques of old.  We crafted this pair from Holland and Sherry English fabric - a blend of wool, mink, & cashmere.  Now this is the way to wear trousers!

In keeping with the WWII era, this crisp & cool button up Unique Vintage blouse has the just right design to pair.  Made of the softest weave, it almost feels like a gentle knit, and is so comfortable for everyday wear.  Yet a narrowed waistline and delicate cap sleeves still provide a crisp, feminine feel.  Pair with shorties in summer, and a crisp wool suit in the winter - this blouse is a staple year round!  Whiskey leather driving gloves & scalloped heels completed my outfit.

  2. I love a menswear-inspired look that still looks very feminine. I don't feel like I pull it off, so I tend to stay away from the menswear stuff. I am a girly, girly girl (or, womanly woman? I don't know)
