Diane Ducasse

Claim to fame / her ADN: ex Lanvin, Marc Jacobs and Michel Vivien, Diane Ducasse draws her inspiration directly from the British masculine style of the 30s in the vein of Peaky Blinders, halfway between the wardobe of a British Lord anglais and the spirit of the channel Hunting and Finishing —as she describes it herself.

Her iconic piece: the double breasted suit in wool or corduroy.

Your uniform: pants with shirts and a coat dress tied on top, with derbies and a small shoulder strap bag—always the same
