Julie: Elegance in a top: The Phillips. Although I just loved this design when we created it in black, Ann, I now adore the feminine, ethereal feel of the ivory. Both fitted and flowing, the Phillips is your statement top for Spring, pairing back to tone- on-tone ivory or anchored in contrast with navy or black. It’s going to edge out several other wardrobe favorites starting immediately.
Ann: Julie, I know how much you love tone-on-tone, and I completely agree that this top is stunning with ivory trousers – as shown here. But, I find that it’s the perfect neutral for summer and love that I can wear it with my most colorful pants and skirts.
The Phillips Top
The Phillips Collection, housed in the Georgian Revival home of its founder, Duncan Phillips, was America’s first museum of modern art. The gallery showcases superb works of contemporary art in an intimate setting. Like the museum for which it’s named, the enlightened Phillips Top combines a modern look with timeless appeal.
This top is a celebration of artistic geometry, with the perfect symmetry of pleats at the circle neckline that meet to highlight the triangular cut-out. It is then fitted at the bust, falling straight to the hip-bone. Note the deep-vee at the side-seam, as well as the elongated back closure. The top can be worn out or tucked into either fitted or full pants, or a skirt. Versatile yet elegant, the top will be part of a chic wardrobe for years to come.
