In Search of the Perfect Basics ...

I'm always on the look out for the perfect basics - those that fit perfectly and stand the test of time. I've tried them ALL...C & C California, James Perse, American Apparel...or so I thought. Today, I received two black tees from a Danish designer called **Christina** Ribel. These t-shirts are pure luxury. Each tee arrived packaged in an elegant black and white box, making them an ideal purchase for a present, if not just to treat yourself.According to the literature "The tops are tailored after the natural shapes of the female body, with many special features that all result in a unique fit. Christina Ribel has created a well tailored, feminine and tight top, which at the same time considers the wish that most women have not to wear anything too tight around the abdomen".The emphasis to this collection is also clearly placed on quality. The combination of Cotton, Modal and Elastane means they have the perfect amount of stretch for comfort as well as fit. You should see the workmanship on the seams of these beauties - I have never seen such a high quality basic! The collection is made up of 18 different styles in various colours and is available online with shipping worldwide.
