Timeless elegance, Katherine Hooker coats

Katherine Hooker’s coats have become synonymous with contemporary British elegance. Since starting her business nearly ten years ago, the timeless style of her designs has attracted a clientele of the great and good from both sides of the Atlantic. This October Storie is very proud to present Katherine Hooker’s Autumn Winter 13/14 collection, and to introduce this very British type of chic to Paris.

The story starts with a quest for the perfect coat.

Katherine found a Hasidic coat made for a young boy in a junk shop in Jerusalem when she was 18 , “I was in love with the fit and cut of this jacket… it was black silk… high cut under the arms and looked amazing on. I wore it to death “. She later travelled to India with a suitcase full of tweeds, and “ a mission “ to replicate this thrift shop find. She returned to London with a paper pattern and a handful of samples. This first jacket was a big hit with Katherine’s friends, many of whom ordered pieces. She then sought out skilled manufacturers in London, and is still working with the tailor who made the first models for her when she opened her London boutique in 2004.

Each piece is bespoke, so “customers choose their fabric, trim, lining and even their buttons to create a completely unique piece for them, that feels great to wear and fits perfectly. “ Katherine places special emphasis on the materials used “We take great care in sourcing our range of fabrics, which change each season and consist of the finest wools, tweeds, cashmeres and silks.”

Sophisticated from the start; Katherine was born in Cyprus and was brought up in North Africa by her North American parents, they moved to England when Katherine was nine. In her twenties Katherine lived between London, New York and Paris. As she says herself, travel is in her blood , and this experience gives a depth and integrity to her designs, and a refinement that translates elegantly from country to country.
