Last year, Sophie Hansen from Local is Lovely approached us about doing a collaboration together in celebration of her latest book, ‘In Good Company, a collection of recipes Sophie hopes will inspire many a long lunch. cosy dinner or afternoon tea in the sunshine. Made up of seasonal menus and full of simple, seasonal food, it's her love letter to the power of shared tables.
She wanted a shirt you could just throw on, right at the last minute, with a cute pair of earrings (more on them in a bit) and be ready for when your guests arrived, feeling a million bucks.
We knew right away that this Crosby Shirt update would look divine on Sophie.
Inspired by a vintage tuxedo shirt from our collection, we just love the juxtaposition of the masculine combination of stripes and the white collar & cuff with the more feminine twist of the Crosby silhouette. The collar & cuff is also reminiscent of vintage dress shirts from the turn of the century, when separable collars & cuffs were added to labourers shirts to make them more presentable.
The Crosby Shirt is precisely what we want to reach for when dressing up. Paired back with some slim jeans, heels and a statement earring, it’s all you need.
Oh and those earrings...Kate from Greenwood Designs and Sophie have designed the sweetest pair with just the right amount of bling and they look so gorgeous against the Sky Blue stripe. You can buy them here.
