With their high, fitted waist they have a slight vintage feel, but made in a bold, swishy fabric they are equally on-trend and contemporary. Whether you’re working hard at the office, or relaxing on a summery city break, the Nina Trousers are versatile, fun to style and a true wardrobe workhorse.
Designed to sit on the natural waist, the Nina Trousers feature a straight waistband with a zip fly opening. The waist isshaped with pleats at the front, and double darts at the back.
They have in-seam pockets and belt loops along the waistband. The legs fall from the hip for a lovely wide, floaty feel.
Inspired by the iconic wardrobe of Audrey Hepburn, the Cigarette Pants are a chic, sleek pair of trousers. Perfect for the office, they are smart and sophisticated, looking great paired with your collection of handmade blouses or breton tops.
The Cigarette Pants feature a zip fly, with a flat front and slanted pockets. Sitting on the high hip, they have a curved waistband and are fitted at the back with darts. The leg is gently tapered, finishing at the ankle for that classic Audrey look.
