The Classic Breton Stripe

Timeless and très chic, the Breton stripe is a staple that will always be on trend no matter the time or place. This humble knit began life as part of the French navy uniform but everything changed when Coco introduced the blue and white striped style to the rest of the world through her nautical collection in 1917 and rapidly became synonymous with Parisian style. Since then the list of famous faces who have worn the Breton stripe includes James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause and Cary Grant in To Catch a Thief. So it’s with good reason this classic has such enduring appeal.
