12-01-2010 The Breton Stripe Hype

The fashion industry’s inevitable flow-on effect: Designers make it, celebrities wear it, and therefore eventually so do we. Now, the Breton Stripe has once again been pushed into the spotlight, this time through Balmain’s slouchy stripe jumper hitting the runways at the 2009 Paris Fashion Week. Since leaving the shores of Brittany, the French province where the Breton Stripe design was created in the 1950s, the fashion world has fallen in love with the design. And why not, says Emma Read, Fashion Director for Australian Fashion Magazine, RUSSH. “Breton style tops are subtly chic, supremely versatile and always a staple in any woman’s wardrobe.” Chic and versatile indeed. Think casual – matching the top up with jeans, flats and the boyfriend’s blazer, and now flip to formal – combine a Breton Stripe shirt with a pair of shiny, strappy heels, and an even shinier designer clutch. We’ll leave you with the current Breton Stripe fashion flow-on effect: Balmain and Bibico to Alexa Chung, Kate Moss, Elle Macpherson, Claudia Schiffer... and then to?,

  • I agree with Emma Read\'s quote - this design is so simple, yet classy. I have a few Breton stripe tops, and I know that I can always quickly pull one on and it\'ll look great with jeans or a dress.
