Hi MJ! Tell us about yourself?

I am Melanie Jones, publicist and founder of Melanie Jones PR, where I work with clients in a range of industries: fashion, beauty, hospitality, sport etc.

 

 

We love your style! How does your work affect your wardrobe?

My style can vary on my environment, work vs or downtime and occasion. I am very fluid so go from ultra feminine to masculine looks, and soft and flowy to structured pieces. I dress for my body type but if I like something and I feel comfortable in it, I go with that over anything. Feeling good in something ways out the perfect outfit because your body language gives your discomfort away.

My industry requires me to look professional and stylish, but also leaves me a bit of room to have my own spin on things. Having the pleasure to work with designers also results in having some unique pieces and discovering them before anyone else.

 

What attracted you to this Peter Twiss piece?

I try to be mindful of what I buy, and if I love a piece I *really* love a piece. This is a good item I can keep in my wardrobe for a good decade and wear it throughout.

I think the jacket goes well with the high-neck lace collar – a modern twist on Victorian shapes, maybe? It also breaks up the all-white outfit.

 

 

What else will you be wearing your Chelsea jacket with?

Oh I’ll definitely be using it to dress up a casual look, like jeans and t-shirt or shirt -but it’ll also work with skirts and dresses. It is a versatile piece which is what drew me to it to begin with.

Made from silk, it’s a very light material and very breathable, so it will keep me warm when chilly but also makes sure I don’t get too hot when it is warm.

 

 

Having invested in your Peter Twiss, what’s been your favourite thing about wearing it?

This jacket has a bit of stretch and I am quite athletic, so it gives room for my shoulders. Also, Peter Twiss is a brand that cares about the environment and fair working conditions – something I really appreciate.

The other thing is, like I mentioned before, I like unique pieces and Peter Twiss never produce pieces in masses. I really like the fact that you would be hard up to find someone in exactly the same piece.

#WithATwiss: Chaela Anderson on Keeping Cool in London

Fiercely stylish, homegrown Londoner, Michaela Anderson is in love with her sustainable jacket, and wears it well as she tells us about her wardrobe.

We grabbed 5 minutes with the young creative and her Violet bomber, to find out where she’ll be showing off her style #WithATwiss…

 

 

Hi Chaela! How would you introduce yourself?

Hey! I would describe myself as an eclectic visionary, who has style in her blood. It’s all stemmed from being born and raised here in London.

Asides loving life being busy in the city, I enjoy socialising and adore relaxing – particulary by the beach, with a cocktail not too far away.

I’m an up and coming designer, and my love of travelling lead me to launch my label, Chaela Rose – a beach and festival wear-inspired brand that’s fun, like me.

 

What influences your wardrobe?

I love glam and have a slight obsession with the ’50s aesthetic, so when I can, I like to include a stand out piece.

With the unpredicatable British weather, I also like to buy things that are versatile enough to wear in the (potential) sunshine in the morning, and the expected showers at lunchtime. It’s also nice to have something light yet warm to head out with in the evening.

We love your style and the way you’ve put your look together with a [Peter] Twiss! What lead you to choose the Violet bomber from the collection?

Peter Twiss pieces are cut really well, with a snug fit. For me, a statement jacket that can turn a simple pair of black pants into a glamourous evening look is essential – and that’s exactly what I can achieve with this silk jacket.

I’ll definitely wear this over and over again with jeans and a pair of Converse, or with my favourite fitted dress. Here, I’m dressed for a night out, and of course my Peter Twiss is coming with me! I’m heading to a house party in East London.

I like to stand out, so the black pants with this jacket was an easy choice – and I’ve already had a couple of compliments today on the train, which has definitely given me a confidence boost for the evening!

Having invested in your Peter Twiss, what’s been your favourite thing about wearing it?

Defintely its snug and comfy fit – it is so, so soft! I love comfort and this jacket gives me that whilst also standing out from the crowd.
