Take the basic tops in your wardrobe, and mix up the black tops and white tops. Round collars, cap sleeves, bias cut, long, mid-length, take your choice. In a basics collection, tops take an important place. White or black tops, both are essential.
Because a basic is not always easy to wear, I have designed styles that avoid the trap of classic pieces. And guarantee that you’ll look perfect in any situation.
And that stands for my position on the black and white tops of the
Smart Basics. collection. The details of the neckline, sleeves, waist or hip length : the kind of details that make the difference. That’s why for my basics I take classic white tops and make them my own, so that each silhouette and each look finds its rightful place.
A black top for a professional look
Choose the short sleeved black top if you’re looking for a style to wear to work, or simply if you want to add a chic and classic touch to your casual outfit. Don’t hesitate to match your black top with a skirt or trousers, and some accessories.
The white top, in shirt mode or casual blouse
In a basics wardrobe when we say white top we often think of a t-shirt. But a t-shirt doesn’t suit every circumstance. Often we’d prefer a white top that has a more elegant, chic cut. Or even a white shirt, with three-quarter sleeves, for guaranteed effortless elegance.
In my basics collection, my black top and my white top are both cut on the bias. I am a lover of the bias cut which brings out the innate qualities of woven fabric and creates a wonderful fluidity. Which means that this cut flatters all silhouettes, with no exceptions.
