Desiderata London

The Kubbi is the ravishing new essential for every woman’s wardrobe. Seamlessly merging the clean lines of a slimming and comfortable body with the crisp tailoring of a Jermyn Street shirt. The Kubbi’s elegant versatility means it can be styled with everything from jeans to evening dress.

It comes exclusively from Desiderata, the London shirting brand designed by Tara Palmer-Tomkinson. The word Desiderata – meaning ‘desired things’ – comes from a much-loved poem she shared with an eccentric great uncle who spoke to Tara only in Latin.

After years customising her father’s hand-made shirts to fit her wardrobe and style, Tara realised there is a power behind a man’s shirt worn by a woman: the classic formality of the collars and cuffs tailored to the beauty of the feminine silhouette.

The collection features three key styles in six classic colours: The Classic Black and White; The Oxford Blue, Pink and White; The Harvard Navy and Claret.
