Rebecca on Mercer

1 year ago by

“I’m wearing a tailor-made double button wool suit by Mola Walker with vintage western boots. This is my unchanging uniform. My style thrives on androgyny. I also ask myself, would an older French woman wear this? Would her husband wear this? If the answer is yes, then I’m on my true path.

When you come in a small package like I do, 5’3 (on a good day) fit is crucial- for a suit at least! Tailoring is key. Though, I have a pair of vintage Prada trousers that are three sizes too big, so I took in the waist and left the pant leg oversized and baggy. Yes, there’s such a thing as a fitted-oversized look.”

Rebecca Alaniz as told to Atelier Doré
