Editor’s Pick: Tops for Spring Summer 2016

“What should I invest in this season?” is definitely among my least favorable questions. Not because I didn’t have an answer, but quite the contrary: too many! Unfortunately my fashion ADHD (that’s what I’ll call it from now on) shows its full potential in these moments: it starts with lace-up ballet flats and goes on with velvet skirts, sweat pants, palm print and ends with bathing suits (in chocolate brown please), but this one is worth another story.

So I’ll focus on no less than four favorite tops, that have to be part of  my summer wardrobe:

Longsleeve by Marc Jacobs

The longsleeve: Thank you dearest Marc Jacobs! Finally there is a new addition to my Star-Spangled Banner Selection which includes pieces of clothing, images and even pillows. I plan on combining the longsleeve shirt with a pair of denim dungarees or just wear it on top of my bikini on vacation.

Blouse by Louis Vuitton

The Victorian blouse: Undoubtedly it had to be this one with high-necked shape, banded collar and smoked, puffy arms. Nicolas Ghesquiere’s Louis Vuitton version (also available in black) is the perfect adaption for modern times: weightless, semi transparent and very romantic! I’ll pair it with my washed out Vintage Levi’s or with a loosely fitted men’s suit – in case there is a more festive occasion.

Jumper by Coach

The motif shirt: Here I speak for the entire hey woman! Team – “black and simple” advocate JK included! The unanimous winner in the category childhood memories is this shirt with a print of the moon over the Arizona mountains (Stuart Ververs for Coach at his best!).

Print Shirt by Vetements

The print shirt: Alright, you caught me red-handed: I’m repeating myself. However, I stick with the things I praise, and I am a very loyal wearer. And I just can’t get enough of the label of the hour: Vetements. Especially if it is a special edition by “Hello Boys”. And it is only available at “The Store” at Soho House, namely in black. Soon it’ll be in my archive and I’ll sport it with a pair of patent pants, preferably in the morning for a cup of coffee.
