The Autumnal Stripe
From Coco Chanel , Bridget Bardot to Jean Paul Gaultier stripes have always and forever will be très chic. The first to capitalize on this for fashion was Coco Chanel. On the eve of World War I, at her seaside shop in Deauville, she made the seafaring shirt into a feminine classic. The crisp white and blue stripes are a Parisian summer staple - I for one wear a lot of stripes and just as winter approaches I couldn’t bare to bring myself to say goodbye to my beloved stripes. After spending an entire summer in striped cotton dresses and little striped camis and linen pants but as the new season started to arrive in store, it became clear to me that I wouldn’t have to farewell my beloved stripey staples after all.
As the new season approaches Kate Sylvester puts a preppy spin on the timeless stripe - recreating the timeless long sleeve stripe tee using a classic Parisian neckline. As well a stripey mid length dress and mid length fitted skirt. With the classic combination of Ink and white as well as a softer Oatmeal tone - these pieces show the simplicity and versatility of the beloved stripe. Sylvester shows us just how easy it is to wear stripes all year round.
