Breton stripe

1.31.2014

The striped Breton shirt originated in Brittany, France in 1858. It was created to be able to spot overboard sailors and initially designed to feature 21 stripes, one for each of Napoleon’s victories.
In 1917, Coco Chanel introduced the pattern to the fashion world in her nautical collection after being inspired by sailors during a visit to the French coast.
The style has since then been recreated in a countless amount of ways and is a classic staple piece in many a wardrobe.
