The Breton Shirt or La Mariniere, was first introduced as the uniform of the French Navy by the 27th March, 1858 Act of France. This top, made up of 21 navy and blue stripes, was worn as a safety measure so that a sailor could be easily spotted in the event he fell overboard.
Before reaching the hands of Coco Chanel in 1917, this top became a working top of seafaring men in Northern France. And then thanks to Coco, this nautical staple became a fashion phenom and changed the way women (men, too of course) dressed forever. Corsets went by the wayside and a more casual chic approach to fashion was welcomed with open arms. And now, these stripes are instantly recognizable as a summer staple for all.
