The professional woman wants to dress with individuality, femininity and most importantly practicality. Work wear has a need to be smart but approachable, modern but not trendy, fit for business but personalised. As work and social lives blur more women seek clothes that are contemporary and work for both day and night possibilities. The Claudette Joseph range has a formal edge with a runway attitude, what you get is femininity but not overtly sexy, fabulous fit with subtle detailing and boardroom appropriate with after hour’s glamour.
The collection features new silhouettes with touches of elegance; the pencil skirt is given a new twist with featured seams panels, 40’s cut dresses bought right up to date with details on the bodice, the fitted jacket is tailored to highlight the waist with added detail on the sleeve, shirts are simple and feminine and coats sumptuous and classic.
The use of colour is a key element in the Claudette Joseph collections with the use of rich warm tones of fuchsia pink, deep wine, crimson red and orange that are impregnated with punchy citrus shades of bright yellow and chartreuse green all blended together with midnight blue, graphite grey, duck egg blue and royal blue.
The Claudette Joseph collections uses only the finest of fabrics, pure new wool, cashmere’s and silks, wool crepe plays a dominate role in this collection for its versatility, comfort and its soft drape handle, the beautiful wool/cashmere blends are ideal for the coats and jackets keeping out those cold winters chills and the softest of silks are perfect for the feminine shirts and blouses.
