This collection of tops is a beautiful example of Equipment's signature aesthetic. Simple and versatile, the range comprises T-shirts, blouses, tank tops, long-sleeve and short-sleeve separates that are cut for a comfortable fit and enhanced with subtle details.
It’s worth investing in tops that are well-made, which is why Equipment constructs its pieces from fabrics like cotton, silk, and linen. Wear yours tucked into skirts and trousers alike.
Before attempting to clean cotton, we would advise always checking the label to ensure no specific care instructions are required. As cotton is prone to shrinkage, it’s best to clean in water that is 30°C or below. This will help avoid colour fading and dye transfer. Cotton pieces can then be gently stretched to restore the original shape. Air dry cotton naturally.
There is a common misconception that linen is difficult to care for, but the material is in fact very simple to clean. We recommend checking the instructions on the care label of your linen garments, but generally the fabric can be hand washed or machine washed. You may find your linen items become softer with each wash. It is advised to wash separately from other fabrics, in lukewarm or cold water with a mild soap or a non-biological detergent. Avoid using bleach and fabric softener on linen, and never wring the fabric after hand washing. Lay flat, and leave to dry naturally to reduce the chances of wrinkles. Store your linen garments in a cool, dry place, and avoid wrapping them in plastic.
Few fabrics feel as luxurious as silk, and in order to keep it in its original condition for longer, we recommend carefully following the care instructions found on each individual item’s label. Some silk products are labelled as strictly ‘Dry Clean Only’, while others have ‘Dry Clean’ as the recommended cleaning method but may also be hand washed or machine washed. If you do decide to hand wash silk, always use lukewarm water and a specific, mild detergent in order to protect the silk’s natural properties. Avoid spot cleaning silk, as rubbing in only one area can cause the material to lighten in just that spot. Avoid putting in the tumble dryer and instead lay flat to dry naturally. If you must wash in the machine, select a gentle, cold-water cycle, place in a laundry bag for additional protection and promptly remove from the washer to reduce any wrinkles. If the care label on your silk item says that it can be ironed, then use a low iron setting and ideally iron while it is still slightly damp.
