I began The Office of Angela Scott inspired by two major influences in my life: my childhood in the 80's with three older brothers in California and the love and memories that I have of my grandfather.
From the smell of his cologne to the fit and tailoring of his suits and his signature bowtie, my “nono” was undeniably a gentleman. He was a traditional Italian man who meant the world to me. I loved the way he looked; his style was everything, and I wanted to dress just like him.
Growing up in California, I was the youngest of three older brothers and a tomboy at heart, and I did everything my brothers did- from skateboarding to listening to punk rock music to expressing individuality through the ever-changing color of our hair. As the only girl in the family I loved the dresses and bows my mom would put me in, but I also wanted to rock out bowties and skate shoes just like the boys.
The Office of Angela Scott, for me, is a classic luxury brand for women with confidence, who value independence, cultivate old-world attention to detail, appreciate design and never take themselves too seriously.
