Hot on the heels of our coats, jackets and trousers specials, here we are with Guide #4 all about tops, shirts and knitwear…extraordinary pieces for an extraordinary effect, night and day, bestsellers at unbeatable prices, or items that are just so "out there" that sale time is about the only time you’d take the plunge and try one!
Let’s start with the easiest ones and work our way through to the uber glam ones at the end. The same rules apply: just click the images to see details in the Digital Boutique of price, colour and sizes still available.
The draped-front wool jersey top with contrasting zip at the back was one of our absolute bestsellers of the season… it was a step ahead in the fashion stakes too, pre-empting the hot new maxi zip trend that we’ll be seeing in upcoming Spring Summer collections. Work this look right through to April… whoever said the season was over hasn’t seen this top!
On first impressions, this supersoft stretch wool jersey Patty Ballerina t-shirt might look casual, but it is equally at home in some of the hottest ensembles of the season, as featured in the Autumn Winter Collection catwalk show.
The same goes for the organic cotton jersey Urban Jungle range t-shirt that comes in two different patterns, to be dressed down with jeans or skinny trousers, or up to the nines with a pair of killer heels!
If you like the comfort of a maxi fit, then check out this supersoft, stretch angora jersey top with silk chiffon layer. It has an asymmetrical hemline and can be worn loose or belted around the waist.
Moving on, we’ve picked out this All Year long top in stretch viscose jersey with silk chiffon inserts and fur-effect detailing (matching items include the shrug, jacket and skirt). As the name says, you can work this from Winter through Spring, Summer and Autumn then back to Winter again to add a bit of fizz to even the flattest of looks.
Next up is another Autumn-Winter favourite, the stretch cotton poplin shirt (the fabric to beat all fabrics when it comes to super comfy shirts); with stretch lace inserts on the shoulders, it is also an icon of style and elegance to the category as a whole. A little bit of feminine chic, again to be enjoyed all year long. It was featured in the Catwalk Collection and is ideal with wide-leg trousers or with basically anything that you want to work with a Boyish vibe.
The double-layer, silk chiffon shirt with all-over sequin pockets is our evening or cocktail hour piece par excellence, definitely to be kept for that special witching hour…..and now that it’s on sale, you have a not-to-be-missed chance to get one for your wardrobe..something you will definitely never regret! (in months and years to come…). It was part of our Evening Collection.
A piece that gained cult Patrizia Pepe status was this silk chiffon tunic with sequin and Swarovsky crystal detailing… grab your now-or-never chance to get one for yourself, now that it’s on sale.
Many of you will already have had the chance to try out our stretch silk satin fabric, a firm favourite in both Winter and Summer collections; used for tops, shirts and tunics it has a suitably comfortable and feminine fit and instant party-time glamour. For this selection, we’ve picked the elastic trim tunic (the perfect cover-up solution for any bits you don’t want to draw attention to) which will work All Day Long or as evening wear….
… and the tulle top with inner bustier, a timeless garment that’s summer ready, all set for a day or night out with skinny pants, as featured in the Evening Collection.
Another great option is the silk crepe de chine racer back top with sequin-like detailing, a priceless piece that’s now on sale, and just waiting to jazz up your wardrobe for every season to come.
Last but not least, there’s the most-photographed, most featured and most popular top of the season….you can’t put a price on the chance of buying it at a snip of the original price tag. It was wanted for editorials, the Catwalk Collection and the Advertising Campaign… don’t you want it too?
