Equipment – The Silk Shirt Style Staple

Equipment silk shirt in leopardA wardrobe staple that looks just as good on a chic sixty year old as on a cool sixteen year old, Equipment’s range of impeccable silk shirts is one of the fashion insider’s best kept secrets.

The designer fashion label was originally launched back in 1976, when Christian Restoin, husband of French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, and inspired by classic stars such as Katherine Hepburn and Lauren Bacall, saw a need for simple tailored men’s shirts adapted for women, for a sexy understated chic.

The iconic Equipment label has recently been re-launched from LA by Serge Azria, who saw that the time was right to revisit the timeless chic lines of the silk shirt. To his surprise in only one year the new look Equipment has rocketed to immediate success with a cult following snapping up the shirts off the shelves as fast as they can be re-stocked.

An essential timeless piece is the classic white silk shirt, or go wild with the leopard print sheer silky Equipment shirt.
