Born out of our founder’s wish to shake up expectations of how women should dress for work, SOMERVILLE recrafts classics in original prints and infuses them with a British spirit.
In her previous professional life, Stephanie felt a received impulse to dress a certain way, as if brains and smarts were somehow antithetical to dressing with panache.
She developed friendships and comrades with wardrobe secrets of avant garde tastes and became convinced that work and weekend dressing should no longer be kept so far apart.
Out of this insight, came the founding DNA of SOMERVILLE - respun classic pieces in playful prints that trash the idea that a black dress or sober suit is the way to make an impact.
Each piece is cut for comfort without compromising design - allowing women of various shapes to enjoy them. Designed to be worn with favourite separates - equally at home with jeans at the weekend, when a grey t-shirt just won’t cut it.
