Capsule Dressing

A capsule wardrobe is simply a small, versatile collection of great clothing. Imagine a wardrobe containing only your absolute favourites: timeless, high quality pieces which you'd wear over and over. 

We've all been there, staring at a closet full of clothes, with 'nothing to wear'. A capsule wardrobe is the answer. A few well-chosen pieces can actually give you more options than a vast array of 'fast fashion'. 

It's a whole new approach to fashion with great benefits :

  • It saves time: a capsule wardrobe makes it easy to decide what you're going to wear (no more decision fatigue)
  • It saves the environment: 'fast fashion' is in one month, out the next, and generally doesn't wear well for long. Soon enough, it's landfill.
  • It saves money: It's the most cost-effective way to shop.
  • It saves you from "what was I thinking?': with ease and pleasure, you'll put together outfits and love every piece of clothing you own.

If you're interested in a happier, easier, guilt-free and money-smart life then a capsule wardrobe is definitely for you!

    The term "Capsule Wardrobe" was first coined in the 1970's in London by a boutique owner named Susan Faux. According to Faux "a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that don't go out of fashion, such as skirts, trousers, and coats, which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces." 

    Issue's capsule collections are specifically targeted to corporate and professional styles, ensuring we serve our core customers to a high standard. We have taken the essence of Faux's idea and honed in on what is necessary for a professional woman's wardrobe.

    Our capsules are small, only 5 items, and seasonal, four per year. This ensures top quality pieces we know you'll love and wear beyond a single season.

    The colours and designs are chosen specifically to fit with other items you already own.  It's important you feel comfortable in your clothes. Every woman has her own unique look. A good capsule wardrobe will work with your favourite pieces to make outfits that tick all the boxes.

    Whether you love to keep up with the latest trends or prefer to stick with the classics, Issue Capsules provide the strong foundation from which you can build your personal style.
