So Why Are Equipment Pieces So Good? We Explain

A renowned wardrobe staple across the globe, you can guarantee that Equipment is a must-have on everyone’s list in the fashion world. Equipment first emerged in the 70’s by Christian Restoin, the husband of fashion icon Caroline Restoin, and fashion revolutionary himself. He set out to reshape women’s clothing with classic shirts inspired by the design of menswear and classic tailoring, in turn building a worldwide label that expanded across two decades of success. In 2010, the brand was re-launched by Serge Azria who has continued Restoin’s vision of classic and clean-cut tailoring, which you can now find in an array of irresistible patterns and styles. 

So what is it about Equipment pieces that make them so attainable? If you’ve been in store, you have probably had one of our stylists shove a silk shirt into your change room from time to time, or if not, then you’ve most likely seen them grace the pages of style magazines. Well, for starters, Equipment items are incredibly versatile, especially the silk shirts, no matter what the pattern or style. Whether you’re styling your shirt back with a pair of sandals and a denim skirt to run errands, or dressing it up with a pair of black high-waisted jeans and pumps at night, you know that you can always rely on it.

If you like to travel, Equipment is perfect for you, particularly the shirts. They are the perfect weight for layering or wearing alone, and whether you’re battling the sub-tropical heat or heading to Paris in Winter, Equipment is a go-to label no matter what the season.

Lastly, their pieces are always consistent. If you’re looking for a quality shirt or dress that is going to fit well and look amazing, there is often no need to look elsewhere. Paying homage to the sophistication of menswear design, there is now wonder that Equipment items are always guaranteed to add a chic and effortless element to your look.
