The Equipment shirt needs no introduction to serious fashionistas. The story began in 1976 when Christian Restoin, inspired by 50s film stars such as Katherine Hepburn and Lauren Bacall, transformed a menswear classic into an item of feminine glamour. The brand is now under the direction of Serge Azria, the visionary behind Current/Elliott and Joie, and Equipment is once again the epitome of cool, understated elegance.
