The distinctive, sexy and elegant Victorian and equestrian looks are very on trend ~ and with their timeless elegance, always will be...
As design icon Ralph Lauren asserts 'equestrian is always in', perhaps because it can be worn with as much flair as fits your personality and always instils a sense of timeless class and subtle femininity as inherited by the Victorians who were able to achieve both rather admirably...so don leather riding boots and delight in the gorgeous hour glass silhouette intrinsic of the tweed jacket, or just as striking, the long flared riding coat, harking back again to the Victorian and Edwardian era.....

~ Mansfield ~
British outerwear brand Mansfield, was founded by Frank Russell, whose talent in tailoring & cutting fabrics awarded him the nickname 'king of coats'.
The son of an east end tailor, Russell left school at the age of 14 to work in his father's workshop. Determined to carve a name for himself, he took evening classes in pattern cutting and eventually secured a job as pattern cutter at upmarket firm Davids & Frost, working his way up to head pattern cutter at the tender age of 18.
Frank Russell was the archetypal rag trade entrepreneur who built his business up from nothing into a brand, which in its most acclaimed period, during the 1980s, regularly graced the backs of the likes of Princess Diana and former Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher ~ and sold in many of the most highly regarded stores such as Harrods, London.
Since shutting down the label in 1990 due to Russell's ill health, his designs, especially his earlier vintage designs, are now incredibly sought after and desired & once you've seen and worn his divine outerwear you'll soon see why ~ beautifully conceived and tailored & always incredibly flattering to the female form. Now very rare to find and very sought after...
