I Wanton That: Ally Capellino

The accessories designer on her favourite cotton top, from Hong Kong

An intern from Hong Kong gave me one of these tops, from Lee Kung Man Knitting Factory (HK) Limited, about 20 years ago and I still wear it, as the cotton is so fine. They’re unisex and made from Swiss cotton; you can get both short sleeve and long sleeve versions.

Last time I went to Hong Kong I took mine with me, thinking I might see if I could find another one. At a party I spotted someone wearing a customised one and asked where to find them. They are the same as the originals, so I bought as many as I could carry.
