Courtly knits

Any­one for tennis?:

Stan­dard Is­sue has launched its sum­mer col­lec­tion show­ing lots of melon, sap­phire and soft neu­trals. The Any­one for tennis? range

The sum­mer knits are crafted from dry cotton yarn and feel crisp and cool against the skin. There’s also a new ver­sion of the sell-out high­waisted knit­ted bikini.
