Wintor without the sartorial incisors, Nathalie Massenet is fashion's original golden girl. The woman who put Net-à-Porter on the map and paved the way for hundreds of strong female characters in the world of business, brand development and finance, there can be no denying that the e-commerce queen was one of the first tiara-toting titans of industry.
Recently relinquishing her throne to the multi-million dollar enterprise, the luxury tech mogul and chairwomen of the esteemed British Fashion Council was one of the first to bring high-luxe fashion to our fingertips. Named one of Time Magazine's most influential people, Massenet paved the way for the second generation of budding online entrepreneurs.
Opening up a fresh new industry that brought haute couture and designer goods to the fashion-hungry masses, where would fashion be without the dynamic matriarch?
Renowned for her strong business acumen and unfaltering attitude to style, Massenet has become a shining light for aspiring fashion tycoons the world over. Papped at high society events in her trademark white work shirt, the leading lady offers endless fashion ideas for conquering the boardroom in style. Blending timeless wardrobe staples with go-getting statement pieces, when we saw this classic ensemble – we just knew our fellow Massenet fans would love it, too!
Re-purposing a strong ruffle and frill flamenco feel that resonated through catwalk shows this season, Massenet has put a modest spin on the fanciful trend. Keeping it all business up top and playful down below, this creative pairing of high-style and sensible powerhouse separates is one to try at home.
Using our classic white silk Hepburn shirt, this on-trend pairing of opposites is ideal for adding a touch of VA Va Voom to everyday wear. A super soft design, our Lion in Winter VAUGHAN button-fronted shirt is an effortless fashion investment suited to any setting. In this instance, we've teamed it up with this romantic full frilled, waterfall degraded hem skirt. A luxurious design that strays from the classic pencil skirt, this confident design flaunts a high-fashion look with minimal fuss.
Worn with serious designer staples like these pointed toe leather stilettos and compact envelope chain bag, this defining monochrome mix is a beautiful balancing act of grace and refinement. Topped off with a pair of camera-shy sunnies and a luxurious bracelet watch, this simple ensemble from the corporate trail-blazer elegantly defines your place at the top of the business food chain!
