Words, Images Judith Ecochard




















Mission PR packed in many media types on their own mission for the perfect work friendly, stylish silk and cotton shirts to feature in those massive September issues.

AS IN wanted tapered silhouettes, made well items, and at smartly valued price points.










This THOMAS PINK FALL 2010 preview, got the print editors all a flurry--- wanting to pull tops for shoots. PRONTO.

AND everything was all good. The silks, the frocks, the ties….

We remember Thomas Pink from decades ago--- for their elegant men’s button downs that seemed way beyond our junior year abroad in London budget…

But the label now seems to be of great value, given the quality---and has expanded big time to include attire for day to night out ease.

FOR LADIES…the looks included three broad categories…

FORMAL



























INFORMAL


EQUESTRIAN

Details like elbow patches,




















Feminine ruffles,

and noticeably fuller arms are a carry over from Spring.

MEN’s shirts also similarly break down into casual/informal and formal styles

LOVE---elbow patches, and vests.


Collars in three cuts…

Penny, Semi-Cutaway, and Extreme Cutaway---  a very modern look that can look ok unbuttoned too…sans tie.

Microfiber and sweater vests.

















PLUS: A complete line of accessories including belts, bowties and cufflinks.

REFRESHING---Grown-up looks, contrasting cuffs/collars... and no mad for plaid lumberjack prints.
