Seeing Stripes

Is it just me, or are you all seeing stripes too? Everywhere I look, hipsters and celebutants are adorning themselves in striped smocks.

We can probably thank Madame Chanel for this classic androgynous trend, initially borrowed from sailors on the coast of Brittany. But, it looks like stripes are here to stay, as Fall 2010 collections are going Zebra again too. Whether verging on nautical or classically French or outright preppy, stripes are once again making their mark.

Everything old is new again.

  1. Stripes do have a fresh MOD, 60's look! You can be sure Betty Draper will be wearing them this season! Or maybe Joan . . .
