The White Shirt

Iconic per se, this wardrobe staple suits anyone and everyone. Originally an exclusive piece of men’s apparel, representing wealthiness. The white shirt took over women’s hearts and became a core piece of our closets.

When circular fashion is blooming, nothing makes more sense than investing in this venerated article with endless styling ways. Channel a relaxed vibe pairing with your favorite jeans for weekends or a Casual Friday at work.

PS. And in the WFH era, nothing makes you look more professional on a zoom meeting.

Cashmere Sweater

As the weather starts to change and chilling days are ahead, we need a cozy, warm, and graceful piece. This call is for our wardrobe hero, the cashmere sweater. A v-neck, turtle, or crew neck models can easily make your silk slip dress a winter option, styled it with boots. Over leather pants, add pumps, and voila. Oversized jumper, mini skirts, and cool sneakers, anyone?

The Bardot

Named to celebrate French actor Brigitte Bardot, who made this namesake top famous. The top, whose sleeves leave the shoulders uncovered, bring instantaneous femininity when combined with tailored pants. A year-round piece perfectly matches a midi skirt, dangling earrings, and up-do hair for a classy look.

Bardot top is a pinch of sexiness to any outfit; think about a knitted oversized version over skinny jeans…

The Corset

Born to shape the body as an undergarment. This piece crossed the centuries, finding apogean in Jean Paul Gaultier designs in the eighties. The so-far meant to be unseen garment became synonyms of a rebellious liberation. Wear it over a shirt dress, tee-shirt, under a blazer or as you prefer: “Express Yourself”!
