So where to get the best styles and how to wear them?
Summer has completely arrived and for many of us there are only a few weeks left until summer holidays start. After providing you with some inspirations regarding straw hats and sunglasses – here is the next item I consider as absolutely essential when it comes to packing for the big summer getaway. Its the sleeveless shirt! Which brand to turn to when it comes to shopping for them?
1. Equipment sleeveless shirts
OK, when it comes to shirts I am a little addicted to the fabulous basic pieces from Equipment. Just for reference Equipment was initially a French brand founded by Carine Roitfelds long term companion Christian Restoin. However, today its owned by the US entrepreneur Serge Azria, who happens to be the force behind Joie and Current Elliott as well. As a consequence of all of that Equipment is the thing every European Union citizen should stock up when visiting the US (e.g. Slim Signature shirt, silk in US $204.00 (equals $150.80) and in EU EURO 290.00 at montaignemarket.com) – Not only price wise but also regarding the availability of different styles!!!
Alma Jodorowsky, the French actress who played a role in “Blue Is the Warmest Colour” , proofed that she does not only look beautiful but also has great fashion taste. Totally effortless she combined pieces from different looks from the Chanel Dubai show in order to make them parts of her very own outfit for her front row appearance at the Chanel Couture presentation yesterday. For me the standout of her ensemble definitely was the cream white shirt with the tail at the back. Super simple, absolutely elegant and timeless – that’s how a great wardrobe basic should look like. So where to shop for a perfect shirt like the one worn by Alma Jodorowsky?
