This is a three piece set, which includes a diagonal pleated top with a hidden zipper, a kimono style wrap shirt, and box-pleated culotte shorts. These garments were made as an alternative to the traditional workwear typically donned by women in the professional work world. Looking at the three piece suits that exist on the market, Clarke strived to make a garment that allowed for more breathability during warmer weather, and versatility to ease the transition between work and play, and an alternative to the typical suit worn by professional women, that mimics a tailored men's suit.

The kimono top was made using zero-waste principles. Guided by Timo Rissanen’s patternmaking book, the double layered wrap shirt is made entirely from one rectangle of cloth.
