A classic polo shirt is an integral part of any wardrobe worth its salt. From the just-soft enough collar to the short sleeve that makes it perfect for sunny days, there’s not much you can expect from a cutting-edge summer garment.
The Dorian Shirt, designed by Hungarian brand Nanushka for SS/22 is, in our opinion, the perfect summer layering piece. Crafted from brilliantly fussy crochet cotton (leaning perfectly into the current craft trend), the oversized silhouette has a nostalgic feel and the openwork fabric makes it perfectly breathable. Worn with or without a vest (if you’re feeling brave), for our money this is the best polo shirt on the market right now.
This new shirt is part of Nanushka’s Sun Series collection, for which the brand has teamed up with El Silencio, an Ibizan beach house, to host a summer residency. Bringing culture and wellness together (leadership coach and meditation teacher Christopher Connors will lead a variety of wellness programs), there will also be a pop-up shop where you can shop the entire selection – polo shirt included.
So whether you’re headed to White Isle – or hosting a barbecue, beach wedding or poolside lunch in the not-too-distant future – then the Nanushka polo shirt is the one item to wear. Need more conviction? Here are some other summer polo shirts to add to your rotation.
