Coco Chanel introduced the Breton top after a trip to the coast of southern France. Chanel was so inspired by the Breton sailors’ uniform that she incorporated the stripes into her 1917 collection. This style broke away from the more heavily fitted styles of the time. By the 1930s, the Breton stripe had been elevated to 'haute couture' status, making it a popular choice for fashionable upper class ladies.
