Katherine Hooker introduces the Tallulah Jacket

Effortlessly sophisticated with a lean and feminine cut, the new Tallulah Jacket breathes new elegance into the Katherine Hooker Summer collection 2011. The new style hints at the sharp cut of the classic hacking jacket and also reflects a gently refined silhouette that draws attention to its beautiful sculpted shoulder.

Katherine Hooker has refined and restructured her exquisitely tailored pieces and this particular collection has been created with the timeless fit of summer linen in mind. A single button allows for the Tallulah jacket either to be worn casually undone or fastened up at the waist, which is accentuated with a high single back vent and subtly balanced with angled pockets in contrasting silk.

Katherine Hooker says of the new season’s collection “Change the angle of the pockets, lose the breast pocket, keep the amazing cut, make it up in the best possible linen, fall in love with the creases instead of being scared of them and you have a sublime summer jacket...."

"{{These are pieces that last a lifetime, cross continents and get even better with age. These are clothes for adventures and romance}}."

Katherine continues “I design clothes for people to live in. Clothes can change the way people feel, the way they walk and even the way they conduct business. I like the simplicity of that. You can step into your jacket and feel a million dollars.”

Katherine Hooker customers include Kate Middleton, Kirstie Allsopp, Jemma Kidd, Plum Sykes, Jerry Hall, Yoko Ono and Sarah Brown.

The Tallulah jacket costs from £490 for the Express collection. Shown here in a natural and white herringbone linen (S860) and trimmed with mushroom silk velvet.
