Breton stripes are a brilliant staple that we all seem to have in our wardrobe, a timeless classic that says Summer like nothing else does. Coco Chanel was one of the first designers to recognise it's freshness and association with the coast when she featured Breton stripes in her Nautical Collection in 1917 and we've been wearing them ever since.
