This oversized double breasted blazer is sharply cut from a heavy silk mix fabric. The boxy shape makes it contemporary, yet sophisticated. The luster comes from the sculptural silk/polyester mix fabric, sourced from dead-stock fabric. (sustainably sourced, for more info check the Sustainability tab)
Style the blazer dramatically with our matching Milano skirt, or go for a more relaxed office look and wear jeans and a t-shirt.
This double breasted blazer is slightly oversized and therefore nor too sensitive in the fit. To get it exactly right, we suggest adjusting the measurements of your chest, hips and biceps. We adjust the length automatically to your height, but you can also adjust the length yourself by writing the exact length of your choice in the “ length” box

The videos show you how to take your body measurements correctly. The video guide is language accompanied and we recommend turning on the volume.
Let´s start taking your measurements. You need a measurement tape and 5 minutes of your time. Put yourself in front of a mirror, this can help. Wear tight clothes or only underwear for the best result.
To measure your chest, position and pull the tape measure around your body where your chest is as broadest (under your armpits, around your back and back to the front) to get the right measure.
Fold the measurement tape around your natural waist, where it is as smallest, a few cm above your belly bottom. Keep it parallel to the floor. Avoid holding your breath or pulling your stomach.
TIP: If you are unsure, measure 21 cm straight down from the chest. There is your most defined waist according to our measurement system.
Pull the tape around the widest part of your hips. Adjust the tape measure slightly up and down to ensure that it is the widest part. Look in the mirror to assure you keep the tape straight.
Measure from top of shoulder to desired length.
For dresses measure first to your hips, then bend and adjust measurement tape to
get the right length. For asymmetrical dresses measure to the shortest part of the
For skirt length: Place the tape on your earlier defined waist. Hold the tape on your knee and secure the tape with one hand. Bend forward and measure to the length desired. Measure from your waist (earlier defined) to length desired. For asymmetrical skirts measure to the shortest part of the skirt.
Are you experiencing that the sleeves of your top or dress often too tight around your biceps? We recommend measuring your biceps and adjust the measurement.
Define your biceps by bowing your arm and tensing your muscles. Measure around the widest part of your upper arm.
Measure the exact sleeve length you want. Place the tape on your shoulders and measure to your elbow. Hold the tape on your elbow and let go of the upper part. Then measure the final length from your elbow to the length desired.
Measure the inside of your leg: Place the tape directly under your crotch and measure first to your knee.
Hold the tape on your knee and let go the upper part. Then measure the final length from your knees to the length desired.
Hold your leg straight and place the measuring tape tight around your thigh.

Hold your leg straight and place the measuring tape tight around your knee. Pay attention that the measuring tape is placed in the middle of your kneecap.
