Last season we redefined formals with the launch of X-Lifestyle, the range of formals that lends an edgy, stylish and powerful persona to the whole concept of what one should wear to work. This season we wanted to take this to the next level and we thought LinkedIn would be a good fit for us to take on this mantle.
