The Tailored Collection

by
Carol Alayne

Here are some of the core elements of a much bigger offering.  

 

The garments in our 'look book' represent the fit, style, detail and finish of our offering.

 

Whether your wardrobe challenges have to do with size, availability, comfort, variety, or the demands of your work arena, we are here to collaborate with you in order to create garments that reflect how you want to appear in the world.

Guide prices  may vary according to choice of cloth.

All garments are hand-crafted in our London studios. 

 

Tops

T's and sleeves

Everyone knows the shape, neckline and sleeve length that best suits them, and yet how elusive they are in the marketplace. These garments are essential in creating flattering ensembles.  Crafted with French seam construction and a couture fashioned neckline that sits in place. 

 

  

 
 

Jackets & Waistcoats

Relaxed version of the classic biker jacket, here with the soft drape of wool crepe, trimmed in leather, with choice of zip or button fastening.

Happi

Long 3-colour jacket

Waistcoats

Classic style, tailoring and liberated of sleeves! 

Suits

Suits, Jackets & Trousers
