Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

A FRESH LOOK AT
LINEN

We’ve tinkered with this summer classic to make it a contemporary style essential

If, like me, your mind is already on summer holidays, you’ll be getting excited about what to wear while sipping an ice-cold drink and eating your body weight in seafood. While I’d normally be an advocate for a full-on, wafty, oversized linen billionaire-on-a-yacht look – dress for the life you want, not the one you have – this year I’m going for something a little sharper. We’ve tweaked the fit of this shirt so it’s slimmer across the shoulder and around the waist and neater under the arms, giving a more contemporary look to a classic style. The blue and white stripes remind me of hazy summers spent in Greece. Team with alabaster jeans rather than cargo shorts for a crisp summery update.
