Color — White
This spaghetti-strap poplin blouse has a ruched square neckline with a drawstring sweetheart cut overlaying it and tying delicately at the center (a sweet detail echoed in the cinched self-tie waist). A row of tortoiseshell buttons stand out boldly against the pure white of the broderie anglaise cotton—charming touches that wouldn’t be out of place in ’60s Ischia.
With a mission to create vacation-worthy pieces from quality fabrics that look and feel amazing, Ciao Lucia founder Lucy Akins derives much of her inspiration from her favorite places: the French Riviera and the Amalfi Coast. As such, her designs evoke serene seaside holidays, with constant reference throughout to vintage influence—like Victorian-era smocking and mid-century silhouettes, reimagined in easy-to-wear, comfort-driven cuts.
