Shiv Roy’s Estate Outfits Give All The Workwear Inspiration You Need
The fact that we have all turned to streaming and on-demand services has not diminished the influence of television on our daily lives. When it comes to our wardrobes in particular, it seems the impact of television has never been greater. As good as Kill Eve Villanelle, Fleabag and (again) Friends’ Rachel Green, one of the most recent “influencers” to emerge from the small screen is Succession Shiv Roy – played by Sarah Snook – thanks in large part to her modern take on power dressing.
Two years ago, with the show in its second season, Michelle Matland, _Suit designer for _Succession, explained how Shiv’s wardrobe was emblematic of her choices over the family business. Working outside the company in the first season, Shiv wore softer, overtly feminine pieces in pastel shades, only to trade them in for some artful tailoring in neutral colors by joining the family empire in the second season.
Speaking to New Yorker__, Matland referred to Shiv’s “new armor”: structured, bespoke pieces by The Row, Stella McCartney, Armani and Max Mara. It’s a powerful dressing for the modern era, with Shiv (via Matland) choosing clothing with silent power, denoting an understanding of personal style and fashion credentials without straying into flashy territory.
Early last year, before a global pandemic forced us to spend even more time with our favorite TV characters, arguably strengthening their influence over us all, Lyst reported that there was an increase in online searches for clothing directly related to Shiv’s outfits. At the start of Series 2, it seems all we wanted was some bespoke pieces, with wide-leg searches up 133%.
After a year where a large chunk of the workforce had to transform their homes into a new office space, many of us are now facing a return to traditional workspaces, thus confronting us all with the question. to know what work clothes look like now. With the third season of Succession on Now TV on Monday, October 18, Shiv Roy may have the answers to these questions.
