Capsule wardrobe

‘Capsule wardrobe’ is a term coined by Susie Faux, who was and is the owner of London boutique ‘Wardrobe’, in the 1970s. She considers that a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that will not go out of fashion, such as skirts, trousers and coats, which can then be up-dated with seasonal pieces. This idea was popularised by American designer Donna Karan, who, in 1985, released an influential capsule collection of seven interchangeable work-wear pieces.
