Feel like you’re loosing yourself in maximalist prints, loud logos and futuristic sportswear? Summer is the time for fashion to move to a more quiet place, reflecting the season’s call for rest and recreation. The key to keeping up appearances on leisured days as temperatures rise is by opting for a shirt, and one who is taking summer shirting to new sartorial heights is designer Bibi Blangsted.
Tapping the underdeveloped segment of women’s luxury shirting, the Danish designer used to work for Acne Studios and Ann Demeulemeester before jetting off on her own brand venture. In an interview with Another magazine, Blangsted declared the shirt as the most interesting garment—and the ultimate outlet for her long-lasting, decluttered design ethos.
With three non-seasonal styles, the brand is reimagining the crisp white shirt for women, highlighting its versatility as an elegant and formal yet still relaxed garment, adding that unique element through subtle precious metal detailing. It’s the kind of minimal that’s simple rather than plain: 100% focused, yet effortless enough. In women’s tailoring we trust!
