The label Marina Rinaldi has been established and designing plus size clothes for women since 1980. The aim was to design clothes that followed the high street trends but in sizes that were not readily available, i.e. plus sizes. The emphasis has always been on high-quality tailoring techniques and Italian fabrics. The designer is Achille Maramotti who is part of the Max Mara Empire and the label is named after the founders great-grandmother, Marina Rinaldi, who was herself a designer and plus size. Persona plus size clothes are a sister brand of Marina Rinaldi which takes a younger approach to design however it still delivers the unmistakably chic Italian designs. John Lewis [site: www.johnlewis.com] now offers a great range of Persona plus size clothes.
The Persona collection has maintained a tailored look with many jackets and trousers on offer. The jackets have a modern look such as the Persona Elisio Tweed Jacket which is in red and navy. This tweed jacket has added denim for a modern twist and is finished off with enamel buttons for a chic look. This jacket would look fantastic with the Persona Whoopie Capri Jeans which are in a blue denim and look flattering as the hem of the jeans skims the ankle. The jacket is also available in black and ivory.
For a more traditional tailored look the Persona Effimera Textured Jacket in beige with black piping. This jacket is fitted to create an elegant look and has a modern twist with no collar and a box-type shape. This jacket would look perfect with trousers or a skirt. What about with the Persona Bertram Stretch Trousers in black? These tailored trousers have a straight leg and elasticated waist band.
For more tailored looks take a look at what Persona plus size clothes has to offer at John Lewis [site: www.johnlewis.com]. There are some lovely looking linen Capri trousers and matching jackets in a tailored look.
The Persona collection includes some lovely dresses for day and evening wear. The Persona Print Jersey Dress has really caught my eye because of the vivid pink, yellow, and grey print. I also love the way the waist tie accentuates the curves and the femininity of the plunging v neckline. For a more subtle dress, the Persona Sleeveless Linen Shift Dress in purple is perfect. This sleeveless dress has a classic look with a scooped neckline, tie around the waist, and side vent. There are many more dresses and skirts to choose from in the Persona collection so take a look.
The Persona collection includes a wide range in different styles of tops but I think tunics create a flattering look and are great for the summer. The Persona Ruffle Front Linen Tunic in grey is a day into evening tunic which would look great with jeans or smarter trousers. This tunic has short sleeves and ruffle detailing on the front. A more casual tunic with a flattering handkerchief style hem is the Persona Scoop Neck Tunic Top in khaki.
