"A woman's dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view." Sophia Loren’s sexy Italian style inspired our pencil skirt embodying our ethos of creating clothing that's subtly sexy and always elegant.
Why we love it:
- The Sophia high waist pencil skirt is the wardrobe staple every woman needs and a workwear investment piece that will never go out of style.
- The chic wartime 40s inspired tailoring, nipping slightly at the knees, helps it work as a day-to-night style.
- It’s the perfect addition for any woman trying to streamline her closet and create a capsule wardrobe or adopt a more simplified uniform dressing approach to her workwear and business travel wardrobe.
- This item is part of the Senza Tempo Capsule Collection made from our signature Italian virgin wool twill, which is comfortable and travel-friendly. A quick steam or crease release spray is all it needs for a quick refresh. We are always adding to this collection of wardrobe essentials so that women can easily create their own capsule wardrobe.

- We pair it with any of our silk jersey tops for the office. Swapping your simple heels for splashy stilettos helps you transition the skirt to an evening look.
