Have you seen the movie Ocean's 13? Do you remember Ellen Barkin in this movie? How could you forget, she was stunning! That figure and those amazing body-skimming dresses and skirts? This was my inspiration for the black pencil skirt. Body hugging, a bit longer and a narrower sweep (the circumference of the bottom hem of a skirt, dress or jacket) which helps to elongate and accentuate the leg.
When I started to sketch I didn’t turn to current trends for inspiration. I turned to those classic movies and actresses that I loved when I was a kid. What would Audrey Hepburn wear? How about Barbra Streisand? These women stuck with what worked for them. Classic silhouettes that showed off their talent and accentuated their success. I wanted a pencil skirt that would do the same for today’s everyday “stars”. Of course, this professional pencil skirt needed to be of the best fabric, complete with details and construction that showed luxury and made in the US.
One last thought, I would love to see how you would style the pencil skirt. Send me your photos, tag me (@robinb.style) on social media and we will be sure to share your inspiration.
It All Starts with an Inspiration
I wanted to offer the same classic work skirts to my customers that I loved for my own wardrobe. When I went searching for these professional skirts to carry in the store, I was surprised to find that there was a hole in the market. Those same classic items that I love were hard to find. When I did find them they were either poor quality or luxury that was overpriced. That’s when I decided to design them myself.
It Takes Time
In this day of instant satisfaction and fast fashion it’s important to remember that producing high quality, well-made garments doesn’t happen overnight. Being able to have a hands-on approach and producing the pencil skirts in the US allows me to oversee all aspects of the design and supply chain process. The result: an office pencil skirt that lasts season to season.
Price is Important
Traditional retail is filled with lots of “middle men”, which inflates the price of the garments we purchase. By avoiding the middleman our premium work skirts and other office apparel can be offered to you at a fraction of the cost. As we have said, luxury designs are attainable.
