The collection's versatility is another factor – you’ll find something to complement both casual and formal looks, as well designs suited for Winter and Summer wear. Once you’ve invested in a silk item, keeping it looking its best is a must. Well cared for silk tops will last longer, we would always recommend follow the instructions on each item’s care label. If your silk is not dry clean only, then it can be hand washed in lukewarm water with a delicate detergent. For silk garments suitable for washing, use a mild detergent that is designed for delicate fabrics and avoid using chlorine bleach as this can weaken and yellow the material. Choose a low-temperature spin cycle on the machine, or hand wash in water that is cool or tepid. Leave to soak for a few minutes, then remove excess water by gently pressing instead of wringing or twisting as this can ruin the garment’s shape. Avoid putting in the tumble dryer and instead lay flat to dry naturally. If machine washing is specified on the care label, choose a gentle cycle. Steam to remove wrinkles, or turn your slightly damp garment inside out and choose a low iron setting. You can’t go wrong with a pair of Elizabeth and James tops. Shop our edit for the latest pieces.
