EMMA

Co-founder Emma is well known for her effortlessly cool style.  Her love of classic well-cut garments shows through every season in the curated ranges she handpicks alongside Kate for Maman.  Emma loves nothing more than getting time on the shop floor to style the Maman Women, it is still one of the most favourite parts of her day to day running’s of the business. 

Favourite Maman Brands – Phillippe Model, IRO and Swildens.

Style Advice for our Maman Women – To always feel like you, don’t be over complicated or ever try too hard.

 
KATE

As a busy mum of two young kids and co-founder of Maman, Kate loves being able to bring her sense of easy dressing mixed with a bit of ‘rock-chic’ to the office.  No two days are the same for Kate, as she juggles all facets of the growing Maman business, but her biggest reward remains being on the floor and knowing she has made someone feel fantastic.

Favourite Maman Brands – Zadig & Voltaire, Ulla Johnson, Anine Bing and Transit.

Wardrobe Staples – I can’t go past a pair of well-cut jeans.  I love to pair them back with a pair of embellished sneakers that take you from day to night and a great statement jacket.

Current Maman Wish List – Zadig & Voltaire blazer, Ulla Johnson dresses and anything from Anine Bing’s new season drop.

Style Inspiration –  Emanuelle Alt, Kate Bosworth and Alexa Chung.

Style Advice for our Maman Women – Trust your own intuition, if you feel good, you look good.

Maman prides itself on product selection and Sue is our product queen, working tirelessly behind the scenes ensuring every garment finds its way from the designer showrooms to the boutique floor and into the wardrobes of our Maman Women.

Favourite Maman BrandsIt’s a bit like choosing your favourite child!  My top pick is Zadig & Voltaire, their styling is classic but with a twist.

Wardrobe StaplesA lot of my workday involves moving stock around, so my wardrobe needs to be practical and comfortable.  Velvet t-shirts and usually jeans, with my go-to's being the Ex-Boyfriend Slim and also the Caden Tailored Trouser, both by AG Denim and always teamed back with Philippe Model sneakers. For a pretty dress RIXO is always my first choice.

Current Maman Wish ListAll the new season product is landing in store now, so my list is growing!  Ba&sh has a great chunky knit for Winter and PAIGE Denim has a gorgeous new cream wide leg jean.  Zadig & Voltaire is due any day and I am excited to unpack the new looks. Maybe another new Winter coat, I have a collection of coats and the European brands make amazing ones.

Style inspirationThis comes from everywhere.  We have very stylish women that come into store and its always interesting to see what outfits they put together.  I haven’t got a style icon as such but love to get inspiration from movies like A Single Man, Tom Ford's movie which was beautifully styled.  The wardrobe that Julianne Moore wore in the film was filled with very cool looks; it was set in the 60’s and they are timeless.

Style advice for our Maman WomenI feel most of our customers know what they want, and the team are always there to help and give advice. I believe in getting your clothes tailored if they don’t quite fit or if a hem is too long.  I am a big believer in always having your outfit freshly ironed.

Favourite Maman Brands – Anine Bing, American Vintage and RIXO.

Wardrobe Staples – You can never go wrong with a pair of crisp, white sneakers, a good quality pair of jeans and plain tee.  I like to pair with a denim jacket for a day time look and a leather jacket for dinner with friends. 

Current Maman Wish List – Anything from Anine Bing's latest drop - I am loving the athleisure look at the moment.  Ba&sh and Birgitte Herskind both have a few new pieces I want to get my hands on.

Style Inspiration – I get my fashion inspiraton from pop culture, watching TV shows, movies and following celebrities I love on instagram.  A few current fashion inspo's include Hilary Duff, Zendaya, Maude Apatow, Rachel Green (Friends) and of course Carrie Bradshaw!

Style Advice for our Maman Women – Wear what you love, let fashion trends influence your style not dictate it. If you don't love it, don't wear it.  Accessories are a really great and easy way of adding character and a bit of personality to any look.
