Linum Usitatissimum

Like a lofty onshore breeze, linen lightens the mood on a hot afternoon. The loose weave keeps you cool on a tropical vacation or a picnic in the park.  Linen also blends well with cotton and silk to add nonchalant ease to tailored silhouettes like the blazers by Veronica Beard and Theory.
