Why We Love Linen

For us, linen is a summer staple. No longer an old-fashioned fabric one of your elderly relatives might wear, linen has undergone some serious reinvention by catwalk designers in recent years. It’s back and we’re more than happy to sing its praises.

 

Linen is actually made from fibres of the flax plant, which makes it very strong, super absorbent and quicker to dry than cotton. So, it’s a no-brainer, right? Summer’s here and we’re stocking up our linen supplies

 

For the boys:

Because it’s so absorbent, linen has fantastic sweat-wicking properties. It also straddles the line between casual and chic easily, making it perfect sightseeing-wear while looking top notch at a restaurant or garden party too.

 

These Linen Bermuda Shorts come in three colours and have a button waist so don’t sacrifice on formality, but they’re really comfortable and cooling to wear. The same goes for these Linen Regular Fit Shirts – 8 colours to choose from and not a sweat patch in sight!

 

For the ladies:

For women it can be difficult to find that fabric to switch to when the warmer weather rolls around – something lightweight and elegant that’ll still hold up as workwear if you need it to. These Linen Crew Neck T-Shirts come in a range of summery colours that’ll fit right in whether you’re at the office or on the beach.

 

The loose fit of linen cuts a flattering silhouette, and no where better than in this Linen Mix Button-Up Utility Jumpsuit. Don’t tell anyone, we might get it in both colours… Wear it as is, or pop a few buttons and layer over a cami for an evening out. Finally, these Paperbag Tie-Waist Shorts are another key piece for your hot weather wardrobe – they’ll keep you cool and the amazing way they make creases look deliberate will save you ironing time when you’ve got more exciting things to do!
