WOMEN'S BESPOKE AT HUNTSMAN
Huntsman has a long history of producing women’s bespoke clothing. Our archives span over 100 years and include names such as Gertrude Lawrence, Adele Astaire, Katherine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor. Many of society’s most glamorous and enigmatic women sought the expertise of our cutters and tailors to fulfil their need for elegant and flattering riding jackets, jodhpurs, shooting attire and even the odd smoking jacket.
Today, women’s bespoke tailoring continues to play a significant role within Huntsman. It has thrived over the last year under the guidance of Creative Director, Roubi L’Roubi. Roubi has extensive experience as a womenswear couturier and lends his expertise to every area of a woman’s wardrobe. Aside from continuing to craft clothing for shooting and country pursuits, our women’s bespoke team now produces sophisticated tailored attire for work and the city, as well as more formal and extravagant evening wear in rich, luxurious fabrics. Huntsman’s portfolio of work demonstrates the scope and breadth of style that women’s couture tailoring brings with it and the ability of our team of cutters and seamstresses to create exquisite and unique pieces and work to any brief.
In directing women’s bespoke tailoring at Huntsman, Roubi demonstrates an acute sensibility and flair for form and fashion, with garments engineered to work in harmony with the figure. Clothing is cut with a woman in mind and is also enhanced with details such as softer canvassing, silk linings, sophisticated trimmings and beautiful fabrics ranging from traditional worsteds, through to textured tweeds, jacquards, cashmeres and silks. Roubi and his team work with some of the world’s best textile houses to offer a kaleidoscope of choice.
As a compliment to our women’s tailoring, Huntsman is also able to offer a bespoke shirt service. This comprises of embellished silk blouses for special occasions and more classic shirts in an array of Swiss and Italian cottons.
