The Simply Luxurious Life®: Katherine Hooker – S/S 2011 Collection

Katherine Hooker – S/S 2011 Collection

With the royal wedding just around the corner, London and all things Great Britain seem to be on my mind and scattered ubiquitously throughout the media. Which makes it even more fitting to showcase the spring/summer collection of designer Katherine Hooker who can rightly claim the soon-to-be princess Catherine Middleton as her client, as well as Sarah Brown, Yoko Ono, Jerry Hall, and Clare Balding just to name a few.

The collection seems to sport an effortless feminine intrigue with the rough and tumble attraction for the nippy foggy day.  With careful attention to detail, each piece is individually made in London and takes approximately four weeks to complete. However, upon welcoming one of Katherine Hooker’s designs into your closet, you are sure to have it for years to come as it will continue to get better with age and care.

Katherine describes her designs by saying, “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.”

Simplicity paired with feeling like a million dollars? Now that sounds like a simply luxurious approach.

Here’s a look at a few pieces from the spring/summer 2011 collection. I must say, I am quite fond of all of her jackets – perfect for layering and mixing with feminine skirts and dresses or a favorite pair of jeans. Their respective prices can be found at the end of the post along with contact information.

Oh Shannon -- those jackets are beautiful, and if they feel as good on as she describes they are well worth the investment. I liked your piece on cost per wear...I would include the value of sanity into your formula. I just love having those great go-to pieces in my closet that I can throw on and dash out the door feeling put-together with ease.

Happy Easter, come by the market for some fun ideas on flower arrangements made with produce!!

Gorgeous......a great jacket is a must have that is forever and ever. I have jackets that I have owned literally for 15 years (now whether they still fit is an entirely different story..lol) Happy Easter to you too!

Lovely. I also want all the dresses under the coats, especially the peach one under the cape coat!
