Andrea Cecile Cohen, the designer who is also the founder of the chic woman’s brand based in London, number 35, has announced a collaboration with Dan Lawson the acclaimed costume designer. Lawson is best known for his work on the popular CBS TV show The Good Wife. They have teamed up to to create 35•DL, an ready to wear, online collection that will be available in both the US and UK.
Last year, whilst researching some fresh new styles for Alicia Florrick, the leading character in The Good Wife played by Julianna Margulies, Lawson was very impressed by number 35’s elegant, beautifully tailored yet still functional designs and promptly chose a selection of garments to use in several episodes of season 4.
Discovering a great synergy in their ethos and styling, Andrea and Dan set about creating 35•DL, a collection that would reflect their shared vision of producing stylish, elegant and beautifully crafted clothing for the modern professional woman. Using luxurious fabrics and creating strong silhouettes, the new 35•dl collection combines bold single colourways with feminine tailoring and is designed to adapt effortlessly from day to evening wear.
After many months of research and creative collaboration, the new35•dl range bucks the trend in that it skillfully caters for the needs of today’s business woman, something which both Andrea and Dan felt was lacking in the competitive department stores and high street environment.
The 35•DL collection, consisting of 18 styles with a choice of colourways includes dresses, jackets, tops, skirts and trousers with dress prices starting at £425 and jackets at £550. The new collection will be available online from February but can be pre ordered now. Pieces from the collection will also feature in season 5 of the new series of The Good Wife due for release in the UK in February 2014.
Speaking of the collaboration Andrea Cecile Cohen said: ‘My aim was to create a collection that perfectly sculptured the female form, giving the wearer an inner sense of confidence.’ Dan Lawson added, ‘Together we have designed a beautiful collection of necessary pieces that will complete every professional woman’s wardrobe.’
Number 35 which has two showrooms located at 46 Fulham Road and 50 Highgate West Hill was founded by Andrea Cecile Cohen in 2005.
