With a simple crew neck and a button-up back, the Regatta Top brings a summery nautical vibe to our SS17 collection. A lot of my inspiration for the collection came from Raoul Dufy (one of my favorite painters), and for this top I set out to design something that captured the vivacity and ebullience of his many maritime paintings while remaining modern and wearable. My favorite way to wear the Regatta is untucked over a pair of high-waisted pants (our Sawyer Pants make an excellent pairing), but it also looks great half-tucked, fully tucked, and — most unexpectedly — with the shirttails tied in the back.

This top is made of 16mm silk crepe de Chine from China. The fabric is delicate and drapes beautifully, and like a true crepe de Chine, it is matte with only a subtle hint of sheen.
The cloud pattern is a custom Margu print that I designed with inspiration from the layered transparency of watercolors and my love of cloudy weather. The fabric was printed in the US with biodegradable and non-toxic inks using a waterless digital printing process. It has a blush-pink background with semi-transparent ivory-colored clouds scattered about that almost look like oblong polka dots from a distance. The dreamy blush hue of the fabric pairs excellently with ivory, and I've also found it to be a perfect complement to navy blue.
In addition to the fabric, this style uses cotton thread, 5 vintage plastic buttons, organic cotton interfacing, and organic cotton labels.

The Regatta is pretty loose and boxy everywhere but the bust, so use your bust measurement when determining your size. The style runs slightly small, so if your measurements fall in between sizes, I recommend sizing up.
