Did you know that our beloved Breton striped tee was originally worn as a uniform for French navy seamen in the 1850s? The original design featured 21 stripes, one for each of Napolean’s victories. And it wasn’t until Coco Chanel introduced the stripes as part of her 1917 nautical collection, that it became associated with Parisian inspired style. How is that for a bit of history? Whether it be a classic tee, a dress, a sweater or a crop top, or even an organic version, we can’t get enough of blue and white stripes. Oui, oui!
