Lucy Spraggan in King & Allen on the Cover of DIVA magazine
This month, we were delighted to find out that singer-songwriter, Lucy Spraggan, has been featured on the cover of DIVA magazine’s 250th issue, wearing one of her King & Allen suits!
DIVA magazine is Europe’s most popular magazine for lesbian and bisexual women, sharing celebrity interviews, news, politics, pop culture, style, travel, social issues, entertainment and more.
In the April edition of DIVA, Lucy is interviewed about her latest album,
I Hope You Don’t Mind Me Writing, which reached number 12 in the UK album charts. She also talks babies, Trump and why she nearly quit music.
Lucy Spraggan’s Latest King & Allen Suit
Lucy has been coming to us for bespoke suits since she got married last year when she wore THAT incredible wedding suit. Ever since, Spraggan has been a full-on bespoke tailoring convert, mixing and matching her suit with casual wear as often as she can!
Since then, we have made another three-piece suit for her, which is the one you can see on the cover of DIVA this month. Made in a green gun club check with orange and red windowpanes, it has a fantastic patterned lining picturing racehorses inside the jacket! We also added brace buttons to Lucy’s trousers, so that she has the option of wearing them with braces.

Singer-songwriter, Lucy Spraggan, on her King & Allen wedding suit:
“I knew I wanted to wear a bespoke suit. I’m Scottish so I thought I’d love something with a bit of tartan.
I looked up loads of places, sent a few emails out – “Hi, my name’s Lucy and I’m looking for a suit for my wedding.” I made it really obvious that it was me asking for the suit and they’d send a message back saying, “Hi Lucy, so what style is the groom looking for?” I’m like, “For f***’s sake! Can you not read an email?”
Then we went to see Karl Lewis at King & Allen in Wilmslow. We walked in and there was no judgement. It was so important to have that. He got G involved and we just felt like a couple getting married, not a lesbian couple that was getting a suit and getting frowned at.
On the day, I felt insane, like so good. Everybody kept going, “That is the coolest suit I have ever seen,” and I was like, “Isn’t it just?!””

The term ‘pinstripe’ refers to the very thin, parallel lines that run through a cloth, contrasting with the main colour. Taken at face value, it would seem to be a fairly bland description of a simple fabric pattern. But the history of the pinstripe suit is anything from bland and, indeed, the suit itself has a host of connotations attached to it.Style Tips & Advice Style History
