Gentlewoman Collars (Part 1)

I am not usually fond of shirts with collars; they interfere with my hair (and putting my hair up reveals too much of the collar, making the shirt too prim).

Prada's offering is extra special because of its genial use of feathers and its (to me) indigo-inspired shirt, which reminds me of a favourite from my twenties:

If this gentlewoman collar knocked, I'd answer the door.
