Queen Street Gardens, situated opposite the Stewart Christie & Co. store in Queen St, Edinburgh, has become a familiar but perfect setting for many of our shoots (and our garden party).
The Ladies collection includes wardrobe staples such as the new 'Raeburn Riding Coat' in a fine cashmere tweed, woven in the Scottish borders, soft to the touch and elegant to the core. This is an original riding style which has been re-designed to be more of a city coat for most occasions and is available in a variety of tweeds, moleskin & velvet.
Whilst shooting the new Ladies collection, the Stewart Christie & Co. team were out working all day, it was bright but chilly and we were interested to see how practical and warm the new coats & capes were. It's very important for us to create timeless designs that are functional and elegant at the same time.
Tabitha who is a valued member of our team can be seen wearing our new 'Bell's Capelette' in a Robert Noble tweed. It was designed to be worn over a long dress but as you can see looks beautiful as part of a cosy but feminine casual look. We recently made this capelette in tartan, matching the groom's choice of fabric and elegant choices of colour for the bridesmaids too but I'm sure you agree it also looks stunning worn over knitwear.
Two of our skirts, the 'Eglinton Circular Skirt' and the 'Darnaway' can be seen modelled by beautiful Tabitha above. The Eglinton is a full circle skirt which allows for great movement, especially when tailored in light fabrics for dancing or perhaps warmer tartans or plain tweeds for going on winter walking adventures. The Darnaway is at the other end of the spectrum as a beautifully fitted garment that can be dressed up or down for work, evening wear or a Sunday brunch with friends. During the construction of such a skirt, we take 6 measurements and create a garment that will compliment any shape for any occasion.
Our new in store dedicated Ladies' wear department has undergone it’s renovation and we are now taking appointments for our ladies collection and it's worth remembering you can have any of these pieces made in a fabric of your choice. Made to measure is a luxury service but at Stewart Christie & Co. our commitment is to provide high end at reasonable prices that will allow you to own many timeless pieces of British-made fashion. Get in touch and enquire and we promise you will be pleasantly surprised!
