Linen is one of my favourite materials. Growing up in Lithuania, which produces some of the finest linen in Europe, I was spoiled with an abundance of this high-quality material. The almost weightless, airy and breathable fabric is the perfect choice for a hot summer’s day out. It is also, great for those (like myself) who have sensitive or acne prone skin – linen will allow your skin to breathe and sweat to evaporate more quickly. Linen is strong but not necessarily hard – so it should serve you for years to come if properly looked after. Yes, it will crease at the folds but that’s the beauty of its character – smart, casual chic that says “I care how I feel and look, but I don’t need your opinion about it”.
