When it comes to fashion, the word ‘essential’ gets used rather often – because, although the industry is often accused of being obsessed with newness and directional trends, it’s actually the most timeless and versatile pieces that are truly game-changing. Take Bottega Veneta’s sage-colored silk shirt. Elegant yet endlessly wearable, this covetable blouse promises maximum style mileage. For off-duty days, simply pair with cult denim label Slvrlke’s straight-leg jeans and sumptuous accessories in the form of Valentino’s chic shoulder bag and Loro Piana’s box-fresh sneakers. Alternatively, elevate your shirt by styling it with Salvatore Ferragamo’s decidedly modern tailoring; the muted palette taps into this season’s ’70s mood and puts a personal twist on a tried-and-tested combination. For a final flourish, add Fendi’s vintage-style sunglasses and a chunk gold bracelet courtesy of Pomellato – the ultimate investment piece.
