Last week, Net-a-Porter's issue of their online mag, The Edit, was entirely dedicated to shirting; so you know it means a lot when the style they chose to grace the cover alone was this One Shoulder Cotton-Blend Top (£350) from Emilio Pucci's Resort 2016 collection. Modelled expertly by one of our current crushes—Aymeline Valade—the cover shot rung in the new way to re-work this wardrobe pillar... And it sold out in a flash.
In 2015, we saw back-to-front tweaks all over the streets. Sleeves went super-duper-long and how you knotted your shirting was as important as anything else going on in your wardrobe. The question arose: Just what are those buttons on a button-down for exactly?
This Emilio Pucci piece has promptly sold out, but our inside sources at the e-commerce giant reveal that buyers are absolutely in talks to re-stock right away. There is quite clearly an insatiable desire for the shoulder-baring, asymmetric design—Chiara Ferragni and Patricia Manfield have worn it out on the streets already.
This shirt is the first smash courtesy of MSGM founder Massimo Giorgetti's debut line for the Italian fashion house. So far, so good. We can't wait to see what comes next from the designer, but in the mean time, get to grips with the new shirting twist that you can either steal for yourself via this one buy (if you can get hold it of before everyone else), or give it a whirl at home with a basic blue, unbuttoned half-way down and worn jaunty with only one sleeve on and the other artfully knotted at your back.
