In The Showroom: Oliver Spencer Spring 09 Women's Collection

In The Showroom: Oliver Spencer Spring 09 Women's Collection

For the first time ever, British menswear designer Oliver Spencer is giving up something for the ladies, namely, smaller sizes. Following in the footsteps of brands like Corpus, Steven Alan, Trovata, and Seize Sur Vingt, Oliver Spencer has started his womenswear label by making a small collection of pieces appropriated from the menswear patterns. So, we see a pair of shorts and jumper dress made no doubt exclusively for the women but, more often than not, we see little oxfords, raincoats, and blazers that are identical to the men's options. This formula is as much about cutting costs as it is about giving female customers what they've always wanted. It's likely, that is, that more than just a few women have dreamt of an Oliver Spencer oxford hanging on their side of the closet.
