The relaxed collar, the ribbed trim, and the three-button placket are clear nods to your favorite preppy polo. But knit from sumptuous cotton-cashmere with a slightly loose fit, this top skews more ladylike, making it comfortable yet smart pairing with wide-leg culottes or a polished midi.
Lee Mathews, former illustrator and art director for Vogue Australia, started her eponymous label almost unintentionally, sewing clothes for herself and her friends while sitting in her kitchen. It has since evolved into a quietly impressive, five-drops-per-year operation, turning out swingy shirtdresses and top-stitched separates that are beautiful, functional and—best of all—timeless.
