In 1976, Women’s fashion was on roll, driven by a flourishing ready-to-wear industry. Possessing a distinct taste level and discerning eye for style, Restoin transformed a men’s classic into an item of women’s clothing with glam appeal by introducing men’s shirts into women’s wardrobes with the launch of Equipment. Characterized by its refined tailoring and timeless appeal, Equipment quickly became a recognized name amongst the fashion elite.
Committed to maintaining the quality and simplicity of the brand, Restoin chose to specialize in shirts and nothing but shirts. In spring of 2013, Serge Azria, re-launched the illustrious brand as CEO and Creative Director. Known for his cunning eye and distinct knowledge of the fashion world, Azria saw a void in the contemporary women’s marketplace for a luxury shirt brand that catered to the modern woman. Inspired and manifesting a modern perspective, the collection is infused with a freshness that propels the tried and true classic into the future of fashion.
