In the fifties when stars and socialites flocked to the Riviera, both men and women started wearing the new-fangled T-shirt. It is a simple-shaped garment now present in all wardrobes for the last five decades. Not all T-shirts are created equal and the search is on for a refined piece that brings elegance to paradise, where the dress code is casual. Still time to pop a few new tops and tees into the suitcase. Breton stripes in quintessential blue and white or monochromatic tees in white, black and blue. Expertly made in breathable cotton or soft silk; perfect for beach and bar. What we want is a top both luxuriously lightweight and satisfyingly soft. Explore the different shapes, short or long sleeves or sleeveless tank tops.
Silk Top with 3/4 sleeve, £115 – a dressy version of the simple T-shirt.
Pure Linen T-shirt or Vest Top from £59 – a cut above the rest.
We all love our cotton Short-Sleeved Striped Top, £59.
Silk and cashmere Sacco Neck Jumper, £79. My favourite!
Audrey Linen Jumper, light as a feather and cut in a simple design – NOW £49
