3 OF THE BEST: COLLARLESS SHIRTS
The popularity of the grandad collar continues. This season, Gucci’s bee-embellished check version should be kept simple with slim-line tailoring, while minimalists will appreciate the clean lines of Lemaire’s offering. Alternatively, make a graphic impression with Christopher Kane’s abstract-panelled shirt; it’s inspired by artist John Chamberlain’s dynamic sculptures.
THE HOT 5
1. CHOOSE CAMOUFLAGE
An abstract camouflage print toughens up Lanvin’s 1950s-style bowling shirt. This works with neat trousers or denim.
