Our Signature collection consists of functional and seasonless essentials that are designed to work hard for you. They serve as the basic building blocks upon which the rest of your uniform is built upon. Each month, in our Back to Basics series, our designer, Szeki, spotlights one of her favorite Signature pieces and documents the how they become part of her day-to-day uniform.
The 3/4 Cropped Shirt Jacket. It’s one of the oldest silhouettes in the Signature collection, making its debut back in the Spring of 2014 in a striped cotton fabric. I have brought it back three times since it’s debut as a limited edition seasonal piece in different fabrics due to popular demand.
Now, the 3/4 Cropped Shirt Jacket has found a permanent home. I don’t know why it took me so long to include it in our Signature collection, but here it is - crafted in a crisp yet light pure linen fabric. I chose to work with earthy tones because they can be easily blended in with the rest of your wardrobe and work will with almost any palette.
I am in love with the versatility of this shirt. Not only it’s a classic cropped button down, but it’s also makes for a perfect light jacket to throw over tanks and tee in the summer (it works well over our reversible maxi or jumpsuit). Then in the winter, you can wear it underneath a sweater. It’s a shirt that you'll never pack away after any season, a shirt you never forget to throw in your bag for your travels.
Here is how I wear my moss Signature Linen ¾ Cropped Shirt Jacket all year round.
Paired with matching moss colored Signature Linen Relaxed Tapering Trousers. Here I've worn it as a jacket, open and unbuttoned over a simple tank.
Layered underneath a sweater and paired with my favorite trousers for a polished menswear inspired winter look.
Thrown on as a light jacket over our Signature T-Shirt Reversible Maxi. I opt for this look if I'm heading out to a casual dinner and don't want to carry a jacket around.
I like to use it to contrast an all white ensemble. The cropped length adds the perfect proportion when paired with our Signature Linen Cropped Wide-Legged Trousers.
