Jolie-Laide

HESTER Angular Tweed Suit Jacket

Meet HESTER, She may not be a pretty girl, but the way she carries herself makes it impossible to look away; she has a granny name, but that only fuels her impudence; she is dangerous and has little regard for convention, but that only makes her the center of attention; she is unabashedly sexy even though a bit awkward; she is an innovator and an intellectual but also a coy coquette; she is hard and soft; she is of the future and the past; she is, as the French say, jolie-laide.
HESTER is the fashion alter ego of Brooklyn resident, Tasha Green. Tasha was a writer and editor at Men's Vogue magazine. Green’s literary background brings a highly conceptual approach to design, while her lifelong passion for vintage grounds these abstract ideas in a feminine and classic form. She is compelled by the emotional experience of dressing, as a person's first level of projection, a means of escape, and an opportunity to tell a story without saying a word.

Stop by either location and try on a HESTER skirt suit. The HESTER suit is contemporary take on the Thierry Mugler eighties power suit.  Tasha explains that “the pieces need to work from the office to cocktails, so I created them to be worn together or as separates that blend with other pieces in a closet.”

*Suit Jackets are also available in Black & Grey.

HESTER’s new line for Spring 2011 is equally as exciting! We’re loving the soft color palette paired with the same angular silhouettes. It’s fun & flirty yet completely sophisticated.






I'm in LOVE with this look, I think I need my own "M" pin!
