Meet: The Breton Stripe

Now, why should you dress your child in stripes?

It’s a valid question. When there are so many cool prints, why stripes? Because it can help mamas spot and keep track of their little ones among sea of children in the play ground or during a trip to the mall and most importantly your little ones will look super cute in stripes.

The only place we would advise not to wear the stripes would be here

Now, some history lesson on how stripes came to be a fashion statement (I bet no other piece of pattern will have so much history associated with it.).

Stripes have a long association with sea. You will see it if you visit any maritime museums across Europe. Did you know that the striped Breton shirt (Navy and white) was the uniform for all French navy seamen?

The original Breton striped shirt came with 21 stripes on it one for each of Napoleon’s military victories. Apparently, the pattern made it easier to locate overboard sailors. Thus the sailors got their stripes.

The Breton stripes soon became fashionable and have been worn by Audrey Hepburn, Kate Middleton, Marilyn Monroe, Coco Chanel, Brigitte Bardot, lots of CUTE BABIES and scores of GORGEOUS BOYS AND GIRLS. If you are looking for something classy, timeless and universally appealing clothing for your kids, then go for stripes. This will be a perfect addition to your kid’s ward robe and you can buy some interesting stripes and prints here.

A question for all the mommies and daddies, Guess who this famous person is?
