Pitti Connect Picks:
Classic shape with updated volumes and eccentric details. There’s an interesting way of playing with patchworks and nice colour contrasts.
I’ve been following the brand for a very long time, thanks to a friend who introduced it to me. Finalists in the 2019 edition of the LVMH prize, Phipps is a unique brand with a strong identity and a deep engagement for the environment. I like this shirt a lot and the attitude it conveys to the person who is wearing it. It’s also a piece you can keep forever, very seasonless with many details.
