Permanent Collection





This classic, button-down shirt is our answer to the search for a platonic, polished wardrobe staple. Slim through the body, but cut longer than your average collared shirt, this piece feels structured yet relaxed. Pocket-free for a refined, almost-unisex look, with beautiful details throughout. Made from a Japanese linen blend, the Valentine can be machine-washed. This elevated, everyday essential pairs perfectly with jeans or a slip dress, or can be layered over––or tucked into––a skirt. 

The Valentine shirt is named for the French artist and ceramicist Valentine Schlegel (b.1925) who is known for her biomorphic vessels and her architectural sculpture, especially her dramatic plaster fireplace installations.
