There is nothing better than a statement cape coat, to elevate your style and fill you with feel good confidence.
With the arrival of the new season, we have the opportunity to discuss timeless design with Jackie, and discover signature styles from the Jackie Maguire Coats & Jackets collection.
For the current season I have selected the Funnel Collar Belted Cape Coat, as worn by by Aspinal of London creative director Mariya Dykalo, at the lifestyle photo shoot promoting the new Aspinal of London Hampton Bag
Inspired by Hollywood's golden age -
I enjoy designing pieces where the customer will discover details and quality that they did not expect, creating considered modern design in flattering feminine cuts, to make the customer feel extra special.
For the funnel collar belted cape coat, my inspiration was to create a timeless piece reminiscent of the bygone Hollywood era, a piece you would expect to see worn by Audrey Hepburn, one of the greatest actresses from the golden age of Hollywood. Hepburn had a distinctive style and feminine silhouette. Becoming internationally recognised as a fashion icon, an aspirational trend setter and one of the best dressed women of the time. The Jackie Maguire Belted Cape Coat reflects this high fashion era, when Givenchy was influencing womenswear across the world with beautifully designed and crafted pieces. Always cherished by women worldwide, sometimes only seen in a magazine or on a Hollywood actress.
Signature style -
The belted Cape Coat has become a signature style for Jackie Maguire. As a British brand we are proud our pieces are worn by women who seek out our unique designs and beautifully made pieces. Each style is known for its clever cutting, which gives our coat and jacket styles such a flattering fit, with modern and timeless appeal. Made in premium Harris Tweed and 100% British Wool the Cape Coat has the added benefit of a belt to give definition and a feminine silhouette through the waist. Effortlessly elegant the funnel neck collar which can be worn up to create a timeless statement look.
The wow factor look -
A versatile style the cape coat has various style options and choices to give the wearer that wow factor. For a sophisticated look wear with a beautiful pair of trousers, some killer heels and a pretty top or shirt. If you prefer a more relaxed look wear with boots, jeans and a cosy wool jumper and for a feminine and flattering look I would recommend a beautiful Jackie Maguire midi dress from our Liberty London Fabric collection.
Our legacy -
As a designer and brand owner I strive to ensure our supply chain is aligned with my values. Fashion designing is far more than drawing a sketch. My team and I source the best quality natural materials from within the British Isles and seek out the very best British artisan manufactures, working with only those who can deliver the highest level of attention to detail and perfection.
Our environment and sustainability have never been more important. The fashion industry has a huge part to play in the rebalancing away from two decades of over consumption and over production. I was tired of seeing collections full of garments sourced from overseas at prices to suit profit margins. As consumers we all recognise this cannot continue, brands and customers must rebalance and adjust their purchasing behaviours. At Jackie Maguire we design and create timeless styles to be enjoyed worn and cherished. Luxury is about creating individuality and aspiration, each Jackie Maguire style is made in limited quantity.
Sustainable future -
We are proud to have been selected as a launch partner by the first sustainability marketplace Dayrize, their message and mission is sustainability and traceability which aligns with our values and is the very reason why Jackie Maguire the brand began.
Investment pieces -
It is rewarding when I hear from customers who tell me that women stop to complement their style and ask which brand their coat or dress is and where they purchased it from. Our customers see their purchases as timeless investment pieces to be worn and enjoyed for years to come. For my styles to be handed down from generation to generation will be the greatest recognition for me and Jackie Maguire as a brand.
