Back in 1975, women’s fashion was on a roll, driven by a flourishing yet cautious ready-to-wear industry. Smocks, blouses and tunics were all the rage…a flurry of silhouettes that Christian Restoin would set out to revolutionize. Restoin introduced men’s shirts into women’s wardrobes with the launch of his brand Equipment - transforming a men’s classic into an item of women’s clothing with glam appeal.
With Serge Azria currently at the wheel, the new collection recalls the classic, minimalistic undertones of the Equipment brand, fusing unparalleled French sophistication with an air of effortlessly chic, laid-back, California style. Timeless and
innovative, the collection features modern, androgynous silhouettes, discreet sexiness, luxe fabrics, unexpected details and feminine riffs on men’s shirting. The range of prints, fabrics and silhouette styles negotiate the many facets of the Equipment woman: she is strong, chic, elegant, adventurous, sexy and is above all, classic.
