Stripes Live Forever!

This summer, it’s all about stripes! It all started decades ago with the legendary Coco and her androgynous ways and it started writing a timeless history under the name of  la marinière. It has soon become the signature and benchmark of 60′s sweethearts such as Brigitte Bardot and an epitome of the French ultimate chic.  An “enfant terrible” like Jean Paul Gaultier made it its primary case, James Dean wore it fiercely, Picasso was a fan, not to mention all time icons such as Audrey Hepburn or Natalie Wood.

For this summer, most designers have made their collections an infinite tribute to this timeless classic: white and blue and clean and minimal as in Celine’s or Jil Sander’s approach, colorful barroco as Prada intended it, sexy-cute according to Isabel Marant or incredibly playful in Moschino style, fashion houses sure had their way with the stripes this season! Let’s have our own during this intense Stripe Couture Festival, in the city and by the sea! Compliments of Gaia.
