About: Serena Bute first made a name for herself back in the 80s when she started making beautiful, comme-des-garçons-esque shirts under her first label, Wendell and Howes. Serena moved back to London in the mid 90’s with her 2 children and from the kitchen of her house in Shepherd's Bush, she started ‘Anonymous by Ross + Bute’. She was first inspired by some thermal vests that she came across whilst styling a fashion shoot. The label evolved into a very British, highly feminine, ageless womenswear brand specialising in knitwear. Sold worldwide and copied worldwide.

In 2015, Serena established her self-titled brand - The capsule collection of wideleg joggers with striking grosgrain detailing offers the perfect building blocks for a sportsluxe wardrobe.
