Paper Theory - Olya Shirt
This product is currently sold out.
Olya is a relaxed, loose fitting shirt with traditional details and a classic silhouette but unusual and innovative style lines. Olya is easy to wear and designed to be a versatile wardrobe staple with longevity.
It has all the details of a traditional Oxford shirt, with a two piece stand and collar, a front button placket, a back yoke with a box pleat and a barrel cuff with a tailored placket and double pleat at the wrist. The cut of the sleeve is unlike a regular shirt and has no front armhole – yet does have a back armhole. This unusual geometric detail elevates the shirt into something that is interesting and design led whilst also providing some hidden shaping in the front yoke seams to accommodate your bust.
