40 Winks

This new era gave rise to a way of dressing that was both feminine and functional but above all classic and stylish.  Lauren Bacall really opitimised this new sense of style on and off screen, she was both sexy and smart and it was with this in mind that we designed our timeless ‘BACALL’...
