On la Marinière
Forever a classic and not only because it is a break from all things austere and plain, the Marinière (also known as ‘the breton stripe’) gives every outfit an instant ‘spice’ and ‘je ne sais quoi’ vibe. If we look at the consistency of brands like A.P.C and Saint James when it comes to bringing out striped pieces, it might be worthwile to invest in a nice number. Personally your writer has been waiting to come across this A.P.C one for a while now.
For a nice collection of striped friends, have a scroll through this Tumblr, where the owner has been collecting pictures of all versions of la Marinière imaginable.
