Today, for many of us, will be the first al desko experience of 2019.

And, as we collectively come to terms with the prospect of a new year – rejigging our calendars and attempting to make a dent in the post-Christmas-pre-January life admin (as yet, completely ignored) – our minds are also turning to the matter of workwear. Namely, what to wear to show 2019 who’s boss.

A blazer is an obvious option: Perennial, sophisticated, and requiring of approximately zero effort to look the biz. Plus, in a similar vein to those core-drobe staples (think monotone turtlenecks and classic hoop earrings), it’s one of those key style heroes that will never fall from grace.

Matériel is the Tbilisi-based premium line of Fashion House Materia. Established to provide opportunities and exposure for young, up-and-coming design talent in Georgia, the brand’s aesthetic fluctuates with each new creative helming – while its message of contemporary and directional style remains a constant. Currently curated by Aleksandre Akhalkatsishvili and Lado Bokuchava (whose cleverly proportioned tailoring in 100% silk and wool-rich blends will prove a compelling option for the season ahead), the label’s dusky pink satin blazer is triple-wear-threat that promises to work as hard as you do.

Add baggy boyfriend denim à la Calvin Klein Jeans. Est 1978, and you’ve got an off-duty ensemble that can streetstyle with the best of them. Alternatively, twin your textures and layer it up over the equally silky scene of RIXO’s Betty wrap midi dress.

Failing all of the above, you could always play matchmaker and give good co-ord with the partnering Matériel pants and a simple tank courtesy of THE ROW. Because, when the blazer is this good, you can have your cake and eat it – not once, or twice – but three times over...
