Quiet Power and The Modern Woman
As Frieze marks its 20th anniversary, we catch up with Eva Langret – Director of Frieze London and the latest muse of our AW23 Collection. During this ‘Day in the Life of’, we invite Eva to guest edit our collection and share the likeness between her approach to curating an art exhibition and getting dressed in the morning.
‘I like simplicity and I like being comfortable’
Adopted from the gentleman’s wardrobe and thus built for function, impeccable tailoring exudes power and luxury in an understated way. Contrasts are key to styling, pair the slim-fit waistcoat in Italian pinstripe against the fluidity of relaxed double-pleat trousers. The matching blazer completes this perfect three-piece.
‘I look at clothes a bit like I look at art’
Every wardrobe needs that one inspirational purchase piece. State-of-the-art silver jeans crafted from pure Nappa leather are just that. Pare them back with monochrome separates, a slim-fit knit and the Kent leather boot. To finish: the iconic Nelson trench, named after Nelson’s column, crafted from water-resistant wool twill.
‘A great coat is sort of your shell for the day’
If there’s one piece to invest in this season – it’s the all-important overcoat. The piece you present yourself to the world in. The bestselling maxi city coat crafted from lustrous wool exudes a quiet luxury over luxe casualwear. The only thing missing is the perfect ‘shell’ for your things – the Meret bag in glossy box leather boasts a sleek silhouette in two sizes.
