Gentlewoman style: Atlantique Ascoli

This new shirt-centric brand is a good example of what I call ‘gentlewoman style’. The shapes are utilitarian but feminine, while the white cotton-linen fabrics nod to indestructible men’s shirts. Paris-based Atlantique Ascoli is inspired by her cache of Victorian blouses as well as Cristobal Balenciaga, which is reflected in the balloon-shaped sleeves and ruffle collars.

I like her take on white: “White has been my color forever. Even if I put on a black sweater, I always put something white underneath. It’s like a face cream in the morning, it wakes you up. You instantly look fresh,” she told Barneys.

The line of shirts, dresses and tops can be found at Dover Street Market, Net-a-Porter and Farfetch.
