Katharine Trousers

These trousers were inspired by Katharine Hepburn. In the golden era of lipstick, powder, and wearing a dress every day, Katharine Hepburn wore trousers. This attitude reminds me of my mother, and I think that's probably why I love it so much.

I designed my trousers with a wide leg like Katharine's and a yoked waist, because I love details like that. I made these trousers out of a cashmere-wool blend, intended for men's suiting.

    Hepburn would be proud! These pants are delicious, and I agree with Amy they make your legs look incredibly long. Also, red and tan? Yes.

    Yes Yes and Yes. Hope you get lots of wear out of them. Also, your finishing (pressed legs, waistband) is impeccable.

    Beautiful pants! I really love wide-legged pants with a higher waist, I think they're so classic, and so flattering!
