A modern spin on a retro, slightly antiquated art form, with a small nod (via the cut, which suggests a kimono) to chinoiserie! How charming!
But wait. Let's take a closer look at the embroidery on the sleeve:
Switzerland-born, Paris-inhabiting designer Nicole Locher describes her line of vulgarly-embroidered tops as "perversion with a touch of class," which sums it up pretty well. They're both naughty and nice. Traditional and controversial. Deliciously dirty in a subtle, "who, me?" kind of way. Innocent-looking from a distance, but super freaky upon closer examination. Just like you! And Grace Kelly:
"She looked like she was a cold dish with a man until you got her pants down, then she'd explode."
- Gary Cooper on Grace Kelly
But I digress. Locher says that a brand new collection drops in March, so for now there are very few shirts still in stock. But the good news is that these shirts are all on sale ($49-54, from $68-74). Check them out here. Wear one to a party for a guaranteed conversation starter. Added bonus: more guys will probably hit on you than usual. Brilliant, I tell you.
