Today we thought we’d shed a little light on one of our favorite Fancy Pants brands, Equipment.
Christian Restoin launched the brand in 1975, giving menswear shirts a glam, feminine appeal and quickly became recognized for its refined tailoring, timelessness and signature double breasted pocket blouse. Plus, as one Fancy Pants patron recently reflected fondly that “it was the only blouse our mothers would allow us to wear because we refused to wear bras in the ’70s.”
Serge Azria re-launched Equipment in 2010, retaining its sophisticated French minimalism while fusing it with laid-back California style. Androgynous silhouettes and discreet sexiness show the many facets of the Equipment woman: she is strong, chic, adventurous, sexy, and above all, classic.
Stars are ga-ga over Equipment. We can see why. It seems to add just the right amount of refinement to an outfit.
