La duchessa Meghan Markle ha lanciato una capsule collection di abiti da lavoro. La presentazione è stata fatta a Londra. Accanto a lei l’amica designer Misha Nonoo. L’iniziativa è di sorellanza solidale, secondo il messaggio che ne era stato dato in occasione della presentazione di un numero di Vogue Uk dedicato a nuove figure di “donne-fonte d’ispirazione” di cui Meghan è stata chiamata a essere direttore ospite. La presentazione della collezione Smart Works, ha avuto luogo nel flagship shore di John Lewis coinvolto come partner commerciale. Tra i capi anche un blazer portafortuna, come quello indossato anni fa nel colloquio destinato a darle la prima chance di lavoro.

We are so excited to announce the launch of The Smart Set . . Our Royal Patron, HRH The Duchess of Sussex, @sussexroyal and Smart Works have collaborated with leading British fashion designers @johnlewisandpartners , @marksandspencer , @insidejigsaw and @mishanonoo to create a perfect working wardrobe for our Smart Works clients . . The collection consists of the work wear essentials often needed to attend interviews and enter into the workplace: a perfect white shirt, an elegant blazer, well cut trousers, a dress that flatters everyone and the perfect tote . . HRH The Duchess of Sussex commented; “Since moving to the UK, it has been deeply important to me to meet with communities and organisations on the ground doing meaningful work and to try to do whatever I can to help them amplify their impact. When you buy any item in the Smart Set Capsule Collection for Smart Works, the same item will be given to a Smart Works client, and with it, the confidence and support she needs to enter the workforce and take an important step in building a career . . Thank you to the four brands who came together in supporting Smart Works on this special project – placing purpose over profit and community over competition. In convening several companies rather than one, we’ve demonstrated how we can work collectively to empower each other – another layer to this communal success story, that I am so proud to be a part of.”. . Kate Stephens, CEO of Smart Works, said: “The capsule collection will give us the staples we need for our clients in centres across the country for the next six months. We are incredibly grateful to the brands involved for making this possible. Every woman who walks through our door will know that another woman cares about her and has invested in her future.”. . The collection will be available in stores and in Smart Works dressing rooms across the UK from September 12. .
