Our French Connection


We’ve heard much about the French naval origins of our beloved Breton stripes but did you know that the French navy's connection to Australia dates back to European settlement? Jean-François de Galaup, comte de Lapérouse left the French port of Brest in 1785 with two ships L’astrolabe and La Boussole for an expedition to the Pacific. It’s widely accepted that part of his mission was to investigate the new British colony in Australia, although there is plenty of historical evidence that the ships were...

The Feelings Neutral....

When it comes to the Summer wardrobe, one of the tricks I note among French women is that they stick to neutral tones like white, beige and earthy colours. These colours generally pair well with anything. I love the look of a beige sweater wrapped around the shoulders of a white shirt or T-shirt.

Le Nouveau Breton Style Sweater
Our new take on the Breton stripe, arriving next week, is made from a soft blend of cotton with a touch of cashmere. This transeasonal sweater with a relaxed fit and blouson sleeve, can be worn rolled up or down.
Nautical by nature, a Breton style sweater will look dreamy on a sail boat or along the French riviera, but realistically it is a smart everyday go-to.
The Breton, sometimes also called la marinière (sailor), is quintessentially French. In 1858, the striped shirt became the official uniform of the French navy. The design featured 21 stripes, which...
