For the love of linen, our newest collection to drop is just in time for warmer climes and the heat of mid-summer—and here, with a soft palette of neutrals and chic patterns, you’ll have plenty of inspiration for mixing and matching your beautiful new linen lovers.
Rise and shine to bright whites and rediscover why white AND linen are synonymous with a well-rounded summer wardrobe. But have no fear, Alembika linen and linen-blend separates are simply effortless. Not just to wear, but to care for… Simply toss them in the wash and hang to dry. Machine washable designer linens? Yes, please. Freshen up for a clean look and vibe.
Behold, two editor’s picks in summer’s must-have white:
You can never have too many white tees and this one has a cool cactus motif that adds undeniable interest to the side and back, as well as a fixed, roll-up sleeve, elevating its status in the t-shirt realm. The CACTUS JERSEY TEE is a little boxy yet soft and relaxed, and hits at the hip—the sweet spot for wearing tees untucked, when you don’t want to cover up the details of your impeccable pants. Bonus: It also comes in grey and looks amazing with everything in the collection.
Admittedly, I’m partial to palazzo pants. I still have a beautiful pair of elegantly flowing, semi-sheer chiffon palazzos, circa 1990s, that I have the blind faith I’ll fit into again… I’ll keep you posted but, meanwhile, there’s a new kid in town and it truly blows away my oldie but goodie.
LINEA PALAZZO CROP PANTS check every box! In pure linen, they are at once cool, comfy, soft and smooth. The full-cut leg is sweeping and gorgeous! Tailored with sartorial details such as slimming pleats, they still feel so relaxed and easy—this is the very thing that makes Hagar’s designs both modern and amiable.
The only issue with these beauties is deciding which color you love most. In addition to quintessential white, they come in three more pinstripes: Dove, Black and Sky (from Skylights), plus Melange Stripe in black and white.
Linen love is not just about must-have white linens and cottons… Muted shades of grey reign supreme, as they work so well with whites and feel soft and light in the heavy heat of summer.
Say hello (lover) to my favorite dress in the group… The versatile SKYLINE MAXI DRESS is a floaty silhouette in gorgeous grey hues, with our abstract fog motif in front and a soft pinstripe in back. I adore the pattern play that turns heads, coming and going. Plus, pure linen provides breathable comfort throughout the summer season. It’s long and elegant, yet imbued with a casual vibe, making it the dress you’ll wear to brunch, for a walk in the park and out to dinner with a quick change of heels. In Missy & Plus sizes, it’s a win-win for every body.
PS: I’m a sucker for breezy side slits, especially on a longer length dress. Slip into your favorite sandals and get flowing…
Last but not least is a covetable piece to layer over every other style in the LINEN LOVE COLLECTION… And just in time for Mother’s Day!
Treat Mom to our gorgeous, Italian-made SHADY CARDIGAN SWEATER that sports a longer tunic length (covers the tush) and breezy open front (perfect for summer), making it the sweater you’ll reach for throughout the season and beyond. Our semi-sheer, hand-loomed cardigan has a luxurious weight and hand-feel, is knit with flattering stretch and feels simply delicious as it drapes to perfection on every figure.
PSS: While I’m on the topic of sweaters, I have to point out that we’ve added a slew of them in both neutrals and brights, so check them out here! Love on linen lovers—and Happy Mother’s Day to all moms and mother figures!
