Emmanuel Alt, 44, gives good shirt. And that's a fact. I've been thinking a lot about white shirts lately. I have one, I wear it very occasionally, I prefer to wear black or navy. With white jeans. But then I saw the beautiful, new Margaret Howell campaign by Koto Bolofo:
And the Paolo Roversi exhibition at The Wapping Project:
|Guinevere Van Seenus, Paris 2004.|
And I tried on my old white Jaeger shirt. Which could be the perfect antidote to my crazy floral pants, don't you think?
The soothing quality of the plain cotton softens the punch of the vibrant print. Apologies for the creases, our steam iron died and I haven't got round to buying a new one. I'm as crumpled as an old French bulldog at the moment, not quite the same as a French Vogue editor but still has a whiff of Parisian Chic. N'est pas?
How do you feel about the classic white shirt?
