Trends: The Modern Breton Stripe

Trends- The Modern Breton Stripe

We are almost out of our seasonal 'Hibernation' and we will soon need to know what to wear!. 
It has to be said that SS2010 will be a season of fresh new colour palettes, where there is a new colour and a new word which will be added to our dictionary - 

'Nude'- meaning skin tone (not everyones skin tone but the fashion skin tone!

Then next to that will need to be mentioned - The Stripe! But here in a retro 80's style t shirt. 
part punk rock Sex Pistols, part Parisian Chic style.

Stripes have often been pointers towards rebellion, anti establishment and acts of aggression. Or across the channel it was seen as a wink towards the chic vintage bicycle cycling of nonchalant Parisians!



Stripes combined with White, Nude, Mandarin Black and Dune colours combine to give a graphical modern retro touch.







































New placements, romantic colour combinations.






































Wider necklines and appliqued decorative bows find a creative twist on classic style.

























A tailored blazer with cropped rolled sleeves, revives the rebellion in the stripe look.
Mix it with Metal chains and shoulder details, and torn or catscratched denim for a step on the wild side!

Brogues look cool in this modern classic with a futuristic twist.
High shine, and exaggerated colour combinations rock!




































And with an L.A Designer touch with stud details and denim Hotpants.
Add some Melrose Thrift style with eccentric vintage shoes!
