Introducing the Gentlewoman and Garçonne Style

The Gentlewoman is a grownup tomboy with style, spirit and individuality. She has a penchant for classic styles that blend masculinity and femininity. Her clothes do not have to be expensive, only well-made and long-lasting. To a Gentlewoman, wearability, fabric and cut are of upmost importance. Her clothes and accessories must complement each other to facilitate a functional wardrobe; because she likes to keep it simple, fabric and texture are paramount. The Gentlewoman is a careful and conscious consumer who does not buy into a trend. Hers is a definitive style, looking to vintage and menswear for further inspiration.

Women who embody the look include Katharine Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich, Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel, Lee Miller, Andree Putman, Lauren Hutton, Ines de la Fressange, Tilda Swinton, Sofia Coppola and Stella Tennant.
