King & Allen in the Vogue 100 Exhibition

It was a huge honour for King & Allen to be included in the Vogue 100 exhibition this month at the National Portrait Gallery.

The exhibition celebrated 100 years of Vogue magazine, showcasing the incredible range of photography featured in the magazine since it was founded in 1916. Featuring over 280 prints from the Condé Nast archives, this is the first time they have ever been exhibited together.

In 2013, we had the pleasure of tailoring a bespoke suit for world famous milliner Stephen Jones for a Vogue editorial celebrating the fashion heritage of the British Isles. As you can imagine, we were thrilled to be a part of it and the resulting photo was truly inspiring.

Famous Milliner, Stephen Jones wears a King & Allen Suit in Vogue 100 Exhibition

Vogue ended up commissioning a Harris Tweed, three-piece suit in baby pink from us. The unexpected colour choice made it amazingly striking, so we kept the rest of the suit very classic, opting for a two-button jacket, five-button waistcoat and straight leg trousers.

The resulting photo was incredible. Stephen wore a feathered hat that he had designed himself to matched the suit perfectly. In his own words, he felt “like Barbara Cartland on acid!”
