SILK SHIRT V NECK SILK TOP

LONG LENGTH SILK TUNIC SHIRT LAUREN SILK TUNIC & TIE (2-PART SET)

Silk Sensation

Once upon a time, more than 3,000 years ago, there was an Empress in China who lived in a palace with a garden full of Mulberry trees. I have seen the little silken balls made of fibroin and created by the grubs that feed on the leaves and what a miracle that these can be so delicately spun into silk for us.

Silk has a very luxurious handle, both smooth and cool, and the yarn has a special drape and also strength. Today it is mixed with other fibres like cashmere and cotton. Best of all, certainly when it comes to silk shirts and blouses, the manufacturers mix the silk with 5% elastine, this prevents the extreme creasing and allows us to wear our silk all day and look like a new pin at six o’clock.

The silk blouse has been a fashion hit over past seasons, designers and shoppers have embraced the chic styles realising how versatile the silk top is, especially as smart casual is the look du jour. I reckon a silk blouse will work worn almost anywhere on the planet.

The Winser London silk pieces are all produced in 95% silk and 5% elastine and in lovely colours that work for day and evening. Of course there are whites and creams, so lovely in summer, but I also like dark colours all the year round, we all know how good black and navy look with a bit of a tan. Some of the pieces come in a delicious vintage pink or Azure blue, both very on trend this season.
The blouses have French cuffs that can be worn with buttons or cuff links and there are a variety of necklines.

The Silk Tuxedo Dress is one of the newest additions to the Winser London collection. It is a great holiday addition for over a swim suit but equally useful at home worn with narrow pants.
The V Neck Silk Top is my absolute favourite and a perfect piece for warm evenings.
