ABOUT THE BRAND

SHIPPER IS AN OUTERWEAR LABEL FOUNDED BY ALEXANDRA SHIPPER IN 2015. GROUNDED BY CAREFULLY OVERSIZED SILHOUETTES WHOSE INSPIRATIONS DRAW FROM THE QUALITY-FOCUSED DETAILS OF MENSWEAR TAILORING, EACH PIECE EMBODIES A HYPER-FEMININITY REINTERPRETED WITH A RELAXED, FUNCTIONAL APPROACH. CLASSIC COATS, VESTS AND BLAZERS ARE RECONSTRUCTED THROUGH A MODERN PERSPECTIVE, SERVING AS VERSATILE AND ENDLESSLY RELEVANT COMPLETION PIECES WITH A REFINED AND EFFORTLESS SPIRIT. SHIPPER IS A PROUD PARTNER OF NEST, A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT BUILDS SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS THROUGH CONNECTING BRANDS WITH TALENTED ARTISANS IN DEVELOPING COMMUNITIES WORLDWIDE. 

ALEXANDRA SHIPPER WAS BORN AND RAISED IN NORTH BRUNSWICK, NEW JERSEY. WITH AN ARTIST MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER SHE WAS ENCOURAGED TO EXPLORE HER CREATIVE CAPACITY FROM AN EARLY AGE. SPENDING HER SUMMERS ON THE COAST OF MAINE AND TAKING TRIPS TO THE SOUTHWEST, ALEXANDRA DEVELOPED AN INTEREST IN THE CORRELATION BETWEEN AMERICAN CULTURE AND ITS EVOLVING IMPACT ON FASHION. LATER TRAVELS TO EUROPE AWAKENED AN INTEREST IN THE ELABORATE HAND EXECUTED TECHNIQUES AND CUSTOM-FITTED APPROACH OF HIGH DRESSMAKING. 

WHILE PURSUING HER BFA IN FASHION DESIGN FROM PARSONS THE NEW SCHOOL, ALEXANDRA EXPLORED VARIOUS INTERNSHIPS AND FREELANCE POSITIONS AT OSCAR DE LA RENTA, RALPH LAUREN, PROENZA SCHOULER, CALVIN KLEIN AND BARNEY’S NEW YORK. UPON GRADUATING IN 2010 SHE WORKED AS AN ASSISTANT DESIGNER AT ISAAC MIZRAHI BEFORE DECIDING TO LAUNCH HER OWN COLLECTION.

 THE SHIPPER JACKET IS CRAFTED FOR THE WOMAN WHO ENJOYS OUTERWEAR AS A WAY TO EXPRESS HER IDENTITY. SHE APPRECIATES THAT A GARMENT’S QUALITY AND FEEL CAN STRONGLY ELEVATE THE VISUAL ENCOUNTER. AS A WORLDLY TRAVELER WHO IS DEEPLY AWARE OF HER CULTURAL SURROUNDINGS, SHE EXPLORES AND VALUES EVERY POCKET IN HER COAT AND ALWAYS LOOKS FORWARD TO ITS LONGEVITY IN HER WARDROBE.
