The officer’s collar (or Mao collar) is a straight collar, without a collar flap. On period shirts, it was also used as a base to attach starched and/or removable collars by means of a buttonhole in the back of the collar. A small flat button was inserted and clipped on. We developed two officer collars, one classic and one small.
The classic rounded wrist with its hidden button placket and subtly arranged gathers starting at the wrist make it a signature detail of the brand. Stitching stitching sublimates the ends of the wrist and the tongue that runs slightly up the sleeve. The fabric and texture of some models are slightly different, with the inside of the wrist in the same fabric as our bibs.
We have developed several types of breastplate, again and again inspired by the heritage of French blouse making. Rounded, elongated, square, hand pleated, or lined with a reinforcement, so many variations that give our shirts an elegant and original look. We wish to desacralize and reinvent the ceremonial imaginary of the bib and make it a chic detail but easy to wear every day, or even on a shirt out of jeans.
