The Iconic Breton


So why the Breton?

Some of the most stylish moments in history featured these famous stripes; cast your mind back to Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face or the many photos of Brigitte Bardot on the beach (lounging in a deckchair, on a yacht, atop a Ferrari...the list goes on).

First worn back in 1858 by the navy in Northern France, these sea-blue stripes are named after the region they were first created in: Brittany. The stripes were decreed easy to spot in a sea emergency and because the fabric was so hard-wearing they made the perfect uniform.

But while the unisex staple has never lost its nautical connotations, it’s most desired for the French elegance it exudes – that nonchalance, the elusive je ne sais quoi. This easy piece strikes the perfect balance between pulled-together and laid-back.

 

An iconic style thats been a wardrobe staple for many years.
