What’s the story? Established in 1976 by Christian Restoin, Equipment is a Parisian shirt brand with a strong focus on timeless, menswear-inspired designs. The brand was disbanded in 1998, then revived in 2010 by Tunisian fashion mogul Serge Azria, founder of Joie and Current/Elliott and brother to fashion designer Max. Its latest phase of expansion includes collaborations with French photographer, illustrator and blogger Garance Doré and now supermodel Kate Moss.
Why we love it: tomboy aesthetics come to the fore with this collaboration, allowing the wearer’s natural beauty to shine. Key inspirations include Moss’ signature look, the 90s, rock ‘n’ roll and David Bowie. Shirts, pussy-bow jumpers, trousers and leopard-print pieces reflect the supermodel’s unfussy attitude.
What we’d pick: the shirts are the obvious heroes and there are two that we love. The first is a polkadot silk number (below; HK$2,340) with a pussy bow, which can be left open to show off some cleavage. The other is a Bowie-inspired thunderbolt-print button-up (above; HK$2,190), which would look great tucked into sexy skinny jeans or leather trousers. For the animal-inclined, there’s the Avery leopard-print silk pyjama pants (right; HK$2,610).
