Moodboard: Sailor Stripes

by Les Sublimes Team

Navy and Red Breton Stripes


We are endlessly inspired by the wardrobe of French girls - and French girls at heart! Those effortless styles that can be worn every day, and everywhere. Peak into any French woman's closet and you'll be sure to find at least one marinière (that's French girl speak for the classic Breton stripe top). Ever since Coco Chanel dared to wear these famous sailor stripes on the glamorous beaches of Deauville, the marinière has been the epitome of casual, effortless, French elegance. In fact, we dare you to find a French girl's closet without one. After all, la marinière is an essential. For starters, you can style your stripes in a million different ways - all of which look fabulous (see below!). Then there's the fact that they're comfy as heck and flattering on pretty much every woman. La marinière is the perfect top for weekends at the farmer's market, holidays at the beach, a hike in the mountains, lunch with girlfriends or a casual work outfit.




  La Mariniere Seaside

For our very own Breton top we wanted to stick with a classic design. No quirky embroidery, no random ribbons, no funky colours or buttons. In other words, the essential marinière that forms the basis of every woman's capsule wardrobe. The only marinière she needs (as if she were to have only one!). We upgraded this iconic silhouette with a modern, slimmer cut, and a full-length sleeve. Our top is still made from the same authentic raw cotton as the sailor-approved originals (don't worry they get softer with each wear and wash). This thick cotton is made to endure plenty of wear and protect you from cool winds. And of course we make our marinière in Bretagne, France, where they have been making Breton tops since the 1800s. In Bretagne they possess a local savoir-faire for these styles that remains unparalleled, and proudly so!

The Breton top, a true French essential. Inspired by real life. And real French women.
