Believe it or not, we didn’t start Suits and Books to promote woolen blazers.
We started it as we were on a challenging journey of chasing our dreams nearly 3 years ago and we wanted to share this journey with you. Perhaps, we fell into the big consumerism trap, bombarded by the same media images that we have all been surrounded by. We felt that we stopped creating and only started consuming (Great article by The Minimalists, worth your attention) and we have never felt more ready to change that focus. On a quiet Sunday where making a list with ‘what are we truly passionate about’ seemed like the obvious choice of activity, everything we wrote linked to social change, social mobility, equality, financial education, empowerment, art, mentoring, progression. There were no cute dresses or even obscurely expensive lunches.
We always wanted Suits and Books to be the shortcut for the ambitious, driven, passionate people who were keen to enter the business world. And as we just, ignorantly, found out that ‘Life is short, and Art long.’ was actually a philosophy concept from the Ancient Greek times, it would feel inadequate to continue this journey in the same way.
We have been very fortunate and privileged and for most of the last few years, consciously aware of it. And what we would find truly rewarding is creating value for others.
While we’re figuring out what would be the shape and form of our next project, you can enjoy another moderately exquisite brunch at the Bluebird Chelsea in London from the beginning of this summer.
Suits and Books. Our Pleasure.
