The Breton stripe was introduced in 1858 as the uniform for the French navy. Inspiration is everywhere, that is probably why most (good) designers love traveling and collecting things.

After a trip to the French coast Coco Chanel was so inspired by the sailors’ uniform that she used the Breton stripe in her Nautical collection in 1917 and it has found its way to the wardrobe of everyone since: from Audrey Hepburn to James Dean, from my studio mate Valesca to my fashion girl, everyone own a version of the Breton stripe.
