INSPIRATION

Da Vinci in the detail

The light blue of this cotton shirt is inspired by the tonal landscape of the backgrounds of Leonardo da Vinci’s paintings.

DATA-DRIVEN DESIGN

Data in design

With exclusive access to YOOX NET-A-PORTER data, the colour was also found to be a long-term customer preference, thereby ensuring lasting luxury design.

Crafted in the UK

PRODUCTION

Handmade at Dumfries House

This shirt has been made by hand at Dumfries House by Jillian, Nicole, Tracey and Graeme from 100% cotton from Monti in Italy. Not only is the material used natural, but also single-fibred, so while it has been designed to last and be re-loved for years to come, it can also be easily re-made and recycled at the end of its life cycle.
