“A champ is someone who dares to be herself, who supports other women and stands up for what she loves.”

Sandra Andreis describes herself as a “Swedish-born nomad, artist, actor and activist with a passion for equality.” The multi-hyphenate artist is perhaps not well-known in Ireland but you might recognise some of the songs featured on her debut EP, Raising My Standards. For this, Andreis has rewritten lines in five iconic hits, including The Lady is a Tramp, with the intent to change their context and make these jazz standards empowering for women of today.

To coincide with this, Andreis has teamed up with high street favourite & Other Stories to create a fashion story that revolves around her message of empowerment and hopes to encourage women to embrace all their dimensions, be who they are and look however they want. As a female brand that advocates for inclusivity and celebrates women, it’s the perfect fit.

The 14-piece capsule collection features a mix of both feminine and masculine pieces that reflect Andreis’ personal style, and is released alongside five revamped interpretations of classic songs such as The Lady is a Champ, a modern take on the classic 1937 show tune.

Also titled ‘Lady is a Champ’, the co-lab focuses on elevated classics that you can wear to work this autumn. The true beauty of the collection though is that everything works just as well in the office as it does off-duty. Our favourites include the puff sleeve tiered mini dress which Andreis is seen wearing over tailored trousers in the lookbook, the oversized double-breasted blazer (need we say more?), and the timeless collared white shirt.
