Happy Birthday To The Breton Stripe!

You heard right, the classic Breton stripe is 155 years old today! On March 27 1858, the iconic navy and white striped top was made the official uniform for all navy seamen in Brittany. It’s since become a true wardrobe staple, having been worn by everyone from Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis to Kate Moss and Alexa Chung (not to mention the entire LOOK office!). Plus, having featured on the SS13 runways at Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana and Tommy Hilfiger, it’s set to be a fashion mainstay, too. Our Fashion Assistant Hannah Eichler is so bonkers for Breton that she’s bought the same COS top twice! Long live the Breton stripe – we hope we still look this good at 155! HE
