I'll Have What She's Having: Equipment Silk Blouses, a la Carine Roitfeld

You may have heard about French label Equipment being revived for Spring 2010. With founder Christian Restoin (Carine Roitfeld's beau) and Serge Azria (brother of Max and Creative Director of Joie and Current/Elliott) helming the relaunch, you can be sure it'll soon be a favorite among fashion's cognoscenti. In fact, Carine was spotted wearing one of the signature silk blouses (and making it look fabulous, per usual) way back in November, months before it would become available to the hoi polloi.

With its perfectly slouchy, boyfriend fit, in a silk that clings to all the right bits, it's going to be a great summer staple. I can picture this tucked into a mini (a la Carine) or worn over leggings or cropped skinnies, with stacks of bangles, hair twisted into a top knot, and a cool pair of sunnies. It's available in several colors, but my personal favorites are the nude and olive green.
