"I'm hoping to see Lily Donaldson in a bomber during fashion week, I have a massive crush on her beautiful face," designer Charlotte Beecham smiled. "Kendall Jenner has also been a keen supporter of the brand so I've got my fingers crossed to spot her in one. To be honest, I think Londoners have such great style; I'd be very happy, proud and excited to just see stylish girls on the streets in a bomber. Whenever I see ladies in CS around town I sort of lurk behind them and try and take photos. Nothing beats that feeling."
Gently expanding into new categories is nothing new to Beecham, who has dabbled in bags, hats and small accessories over previous seasons, but making the leap into ready-to-wear was still a daunting step for her.
"My business model has been very organic to say the least," she told us. "I actually made my very first jacket out of fluffy scraps strewn around the office. It's only when I started wearing it that I realised that my friends, colleagues and buyers wanted one too! Three seasons in it felt like the right time to expand the Charlotte Simone offering."
Priced from £475 to £575, the jacket collection is available fromCharlottesimone.com.
