People say everything happens for a reason, in its own time, and that's exactly what happened with A-line, a Portuguese brand that's ready to take over the tailor-made woman's shirt wear world. The brand oozes elegance, poise, and savoir-faire, a fairly holy trinity that makes up for what women look for in a shirt.

The founder, Alexandra Carneiro, believes she's speaking from one woman to another when designing these amazing, detail-oriented shirts that seek to fit every woman's desire, be it sophistication, comfort or a certain something to it. Materials like cotton and silk are the prime choices, followed by neutral shades and pastel colours.

We created A-line because we have realised that there is a segment of women unsuccessfully looking for elegant, comfortable pieces that are adaptable and suitable for any time of the day. Alexandra Carneiro, founder of A-line

Alexandra's mother was a dressmaker, which makes her undoubtably familiar with thread and fabrics, making the most of what she learned from the master herself: high-quality standards in every little thing she sewn.

In 2016, A-line was thus born, carrying within its essence the purpose of reinventing the shirt, a common staple in every woman's closet, yet almost certainly lacking the element of real fit or of standing out from all the others.

The latest collection follows these lines, falling back on iconic women like Sofia, mostly similar to the previous one, which debut leans on feminine power and takes inspiration from a number of different eras, from the French Commedia dell'Arte to the Victorian age and the 80s irreverence. A-line's story is divided into chapters, reminding us that every story has its own pace as it lives through us — those looking from the outside.

Also, don't miss out on A-line's awe-inspiring instagram page and the stories they write on their website.
