The classic British shirtmaker Thomas Pink is unveiling a newly reworked line of womenswear set to hit stores in August.
The 60-piece line is based around the idea of the classic shirt, in Swiss cotton, honeycomb lace, silk and poplin finishes.
“When we started doing women’s wear at Thomas Pink, it was all about women wearing their husband’s, boyfriend’s or significant other’s shirts. They loved the looseness and ease,” said the brand’s creative director Florence Torrens.
Thomas Pink has offered womenswear since 1992, but this is the first comprehensive rethink of the concept: “we went back to the original idea of a slightly oversize shirt,” added Torrens.
Pink offers two belted button up shirt dresses, and the tailoring has been expanded with a tweed jacket and a mohair tuxedo.
Shirts range from $160 to $250 while the tailored looks go up to $1,400, with the collection set to hit stores in August.
Founded in London in 1984 by the Mullen brothers, Thomas Pink is now part of the LVMH luxury group, with the brand recently opening stores in India and South Africa. The two new countries add to Thomas Pink’s 80 locations around the world in USA, France, Mexico, Dubai, Hong Kong, Australia, China, Canada, and the UK.
