Who is behind Allta
Allta was founded by Emma Stewart, along with husband, Colin, to provide high quality clothing for women 5ft 10″ and above where the emphasis is on using the best fabric, finding the best fit and providing a touch of affordable luxury.
Allta clothing is designed from our base in the Oxfordshire countryside and all our jackets are lovingly made in London using natural fabrics where possible.
The problem with tall clothing
Emma is 6ft tall and has always worked in the creative industries, generally in an environment where you can wear jeans and a t-shirt to work. But tempting as it is to throw on a pair of jeans and a jumper in the morning, she has always appreciated how a good quality jacket can pull an outfit together and make you look on top of your game.
However, finding that jacket – something sharp, cool and feminine – to achieve the desired look has always been something of a challenge, which is why Emma decided to launch Allta with that elusive wardrobe staple for the taller woman: jackets that fit.
Allta’s Moreton blazer is available in a range of colours from the ever-dependable navy and silver grey to a hot pink and a lively turquoise, sure to give your wardrobe a lift. They are made from 100% premium Shetland wool, fully lined and finished with contrasting piping and finest quality mother of pearl buttons for added luxury.
For those looking for something less formal, Allta’s Blewbury jacket is our take on the military jacket: a perennial favourite casual style. These jackets are made from 100% cotton twill with a pull cord to allow you to cinch it in at the waist (and yes, it’ll be at your waist and not halfway up around your ribs!). They are lined with a contrasting colour, finished with zips, popper fasteners and have patch pockets for all those essential bits and bobs. The Blewbury jacket is available in olive green with a mustard gold lining & zips and silver grey with a turquoise lining and zip colour.
The other piece of clothing Emma has always struggled to find is a proper fitted shirt, which is long enough in the sleeves and body. Gingham cotton always looks crisp and fresh and, as with the jackets, Emma has added an extra detail in the contrasting buttons and plackets.
Our aim is that these jackets and shirts will not only fit you comfortably but will give you the confidence you only get when you’re wearing a great quality garment and not having to settle for less.
