Elizabeth & Clarke The Unstainable Collection May 2016 box

Elizabeth & Clarke is a premium women’s clothing quarterly subscription clothing box. All versatile and beautiful blouses, shirts, and tops. When you subscribe, select 1, 2, or 3 shirts from the seasonal or classic collection. They are top quality shirts designed with fashion, ability to style, and ease of care in mind. It’s $30 for one shirt, $50 for 2, and $60 for 3 (which means it’s somewhat crazy to not just get 3, especially if you like and/or wear clothes).

Elizabeth & Clarke recently launched a new collection – The Unstainable Workwear Collection  – which aims to help working women solve their everyday struggle in finding the perfect work clothes.

This collection uses the new Unstainable and Sweat-Proof technology developed by Elizabeth & Clarke. Of course, the outfits in this collection are also as chic, beautiful and functional as their other collections.

As usual, the items are neatly packed on cardboard inside individually sealed plastic bags.

This new collection features a pant, skirt, dress, and blazer to mix and match – and bonus – they are WASHER and DRYER SAFE! I can’t shout that enough. Although I no longer wear suits on the daily, I used to – and dry cleaning is such a PITA!

Elizabeth & Clarke The Unstainable Collection May 2016 review

All the pieces from the The Unstainable Workwear Collection (minus the skirt). Adding to the unstainable-ness of the previous shirts (which really are Unstainable!) this collection features sweatproof fabric that pushes moisture in one direction! Embedded nanoparticles destroy 99% of bacteria, meaning that the smell is not locked in.

 You can get a pant or skirt from the Kickstarter campaign for $80. Combo prices go up from there. The entire collection in one color is available for $360. This campaign is already funded and will break through its first reach goal shortly – all items in size 16. Note that they sent me some items in Royal Navy blue – that’s at $250k of funding.

The Banks. These pants are pretty awesome. First of all – all the items come complete with actual functional pockets! If you’ve worn E&C before you’ll be familiar with their great drapey Ponte de Roma Knit.

Looks like a basic pair of pants.

Great details (and that zipper hiding underneath is a YKK).Elizabeth & Clarke The Unstainable Collection May 2016 (8)

I’m always impressed  with the construction of these garments. Inexpensive fashion doesn’t have to mean cheap. Look at that tacking at the bottom of the zipper placket!

And on the pockets! FYI – if you can tell by the color of the black underneath, the color of these photos got a little blown out. It’s a royal navy blue.

But most amazingly there are FOUR length adjustments. My bestie & I can finally share a pair of pants. The last adjustment is very short – like a capri length – but most every woman will be able to adjust for her height, plus the height of her shoes if she chooses!

The Grant. This jacket features a nice asymmetrical front cut with a smooth lining. It’s extremely fashion forward with a notch in the back, and of course features pockets.

It’s like a classy suiting version of a moto!Elizabeth & Clarke The Unstainable Collection May 2016 (4)

The lining construction is perfection and the jacket closes with a zip.Elizabeth & Clarke The Unstainable Collection May 2016 (5)

There’s also a snap to keep the garment closed and the inside from falling down.

The James. This dress is designed to be day-to-night.

This shot is from the INSIDE of the dress. As always, each piece is beautifully finished. In addition to the fabric technology I never want to worry about seams. Elizabeth & Clarke The Unstainable Collection May 2016 (12)

The silhouette is very different and unique!Elizabeth & Clarke The Unstainable Collection May 2016 (14) Elizabeth & Clarke The Unstainable Collection May 2016 (15)

Neat. More than neat. Amazing. I’m really incredibly blown away at this company coming from innovating in delivery and design of basics to this. What brick & mortar stores do you know of that have really worked to rebuild women’s garments from the inside out?!
