Get ready for those Summer Days with Linen...

Anyone who knows me well, will attest to the fact that from September through to March, I mostly wear linen. To me it always appears fresh, light and elegant. I am a capsule wardrobe wearer. I prefer to own few clothes, but I love what I wear and I wear the same thing over and over proudly. I love cashmere in winter for its softness and warmth, and pure linen is my go-to fabric choices in Summer for so many reasons.  I like clothes which age well which always leads me to beautiful linens. Linen is  2-3 times stronger than cotton.

Linen is cool and Sydney gets hot in Summer. I am up and down stairs, indoors and out and this light, comfortable fabric allows me to feel completely relaxed from day through to night. I spend a good amount of time each year in the much warmer climates of Queensland and Asia. A fabric which allows good airflow and doesn’t cling to my skin is really appealing to me.

I am incredibly sun conscious, so linen provides me with the best possible protection from UV rays whilst allowing air permeability keeping me 3-4 degrees cooler than other fabrics. To me, freshly pressed linen is a statement in and of itself. Clean, fresh, cool, crisp, tough, natural and beautiful.
