The Reversible Trench Coat

Tell us about your background

From about the age of 16, I thought I wanted to work in the advertising world. It seemed glamorous and fun and the perfect way to merge my love of creativity with the business side of my brain. Whilst at university I did a work placement for six months at an ad agency and this cemented my career thinking. After graduation, I was lucky enough to be accepted onto a grad scheme at one of the large BTL ad agencies working on a diverse range of clients (everything from an alcohol brand to charities). I stayed for seven years, only leaving to move overseas. I continued my career in ad agencies in both The Middle East and Asia, working for Harvey Nichols, Land Rover, Boutique 1, Hilton Hotels, DKNY and Tiger Beer, among others. 

How do you style your Marfa Stance piece?

We have recently bought a home in the countryside, so what I love about Marfa Stance pieces is how adaptable they are to the two aspects of my life. Smart enough for life in the city; but equally suitable for long walks across the fields. 

Depending on where I am, I style them up in different ways. In the country, I pair my MS pieces with casual country stalwarts; denim, boots and a trusty beanie. Warmth and comfort are key; and Marfa Stance delivers on this, but allows me to still feel pulled together and chic. 

In the city, my MS trench comes into its own. Light enough to throw over a maxi dress and boots, it adds the perfect classic finish to my outfit, but with a fresh and imaginative twist.
