Cute printed blouses have become a bit of a fashion staple in recent months. They’re great versatile pieces and can look smart, cool and effortless in equal measure, but it’s the sleeveless versions that are having a bit of a moment right now, especially given the rise in temperatures lately.
This Balenciaga hand-printed shirt is certainly one of the most fabulous around right now. The beautiful black and white leopard-inspired design is gloriously eye-catching and printed on the finest silk with a peaked hem perfect for tucking into trousers or skirts.
But my favourite feature is the quirky hand-painted collar tips – why don’t we see them around more often? – that are on every editor’s wishlist right now.
It would look great with a maxi skirt or cigarette trousers, but there is something about those collar tips that’s screaming jeans – without being too John Wayne, this shirt certain gives a nod to the old west and feels perfect for downtown denim.
As always, Balenciaga has produced a directional and classically modern piece that’s shot straight to the lust list.
