Absolutely loving these sweet-as-pie, women's only chef trousers designed by Australian-born, London-based chef Maxine Thompson.
Maxine, frustrated with the unflattering, unisex trousers her and her fellow female chefs were forced to wear, decided to take matters into her own hands and design the ideal female chef trouser. Designed for functionality and comfort, but also for style, of course! PolkaPants!
The name PolkaPants originates from a pair of beloved polka dot trousers that Maxine first made when she studied fashion design and wore whilst working as a freelance chef. The design of the PolkaPants trousers is inspired by the Utility Scheme clothing of the 40s - simple, robust and functional. They’re a tailored, slim-fit make, with a classic high waist and cropped at the ankle, and available in black, hounds tooth or polka dots (the signature style). All trousers are made from fabric that is 97% cotton with a 3% stretch for ease of movement in the busy kitchen.
