The Hastings Jacket, forms part of the Hastings Suit, companion-chronicler and best friend of our favourite detective. The shape has been inspired by Safari Suits of the 1930s. It has been printed with the Deco Eye Print in a beautiful bright coral shade, Coral Vermillion, which was the blush colour of choice in the 1930s.
Made from 100% Cotton Broderie Anglaise. Fully lined with tie belt at the waist and brass buttons. Faux pocket details at the front. Matches perfectly with the Hastings Trousers in Deco Eye Print. Colours may differ from screen due to the Coral colour being very hard to photograph.
Kai is 5’9” and a UK8 and is wearing size UK8-10.
The Lady Vanishes takes inspiration from 1930s mystery novels, with references from the 'Queen of Crime' herself Agatha Christie alongside moody and resonant Daphne Du Maurier themes. Vibrant and fresh colours are taken from the 'English Riviera' to enhance the Christie symbolism in the pieces such as imagery associated with Poirot's distinctive style like the pocket watch, small round glasses and accusing finger, alongside the crimes that he solves sits the poison bottle and the gun with the spiked wine. Always watching over any suspicious behaviour is the Art Deco Eye, a continuing theme throughout the prints.
The darker elements of the prints are contrasted by the soft elegant shapes. Using late 1920s and early 1930s vintage clothing as a base for this season’s silhouette the pieces range from the classic bias Day Dress worn exploring quiet English Villages, a Safari Suit perfect for an investigation at a local Country House, to short sets and nautical pieces, ideal for sunbathing on Burgh Island…at your peril.
