James Dean, Audrey Tatou, Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn, all in timeless stripes...

The other day, while watching the movie Coco avant Chanel, I realised how amazing it was that this young woman, Gabrielle, later known as Coco, adopted this simple T-shirt in her collections. She had never seen the sea, in her 20's, but her magnificent critical eye captured the simplicity of this striped sailor's costume. From then on, it has a become my wardrobe staple, I wear them with anything from jeans to sequin skirts, ( wish I had a photo to show you!!) , it's a classic and you can never have too many!

Versatile, everyday wear, or jazz it up with florals!
