Inspired by the previous post, I thought I would do my own “Get the Look” post:

Equipment Shirt:

You may or may not heard of the legend of Equipment. The shirt collection was launched in 1976, but the founder, Christian Restoin (Carine Roitfeld‘s long time partner) sold the business in 1998. Restoin brought Equipment back to life for Spring 2010 based on its heritage look. Yes, Fash-E is completely obsessed with the signature, feminine styled shirts. In fact, Carine Roitfeld was also sported wearing a silk blouse (rumoured to be one of Equipment‘s). I say, if you have the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris as a fan – half the ‘sales’ battle is won. If you love androgynous silhouettes, you are going to die for Equipment.   Here is the ever-chic Ms. Roitfeld, in said shirt:

Here is a sample of the shirts:
 
 
 
 

And here is how to DIY the look:
 

McCalls 6436

I’m planning a version in a sheer poly print – I have a broken dot print in a white/soft taupe and also a sheer python print in a royal blue & black print – The sheer polys are on sale at Fabricland Canada in Toronto currently for $4.67/m.
 
The Equipement blouses retail for $250 and upwards (in silk)
Awesome!!
