From Seafarer to Chanel. The history of the famed striped shirt, from Normandy and a look in on the newest styles for the upcoming season from heritage producer Saint James, is happening this Thursday, Feb 20th, from 5.30 - 8.00 pm. Join us and Thibaut, and get yourselves acquainted with the rich heritage and history behind the iconic striped number that Coco Chanel once ushered into popular fashion. Her best efforts started a shift of perception of the prized striped shirt as a stylish investment piece for seaside holidays, hence liberating women from the sartorial constraints of the 1910s. In Coco we trust.
Saint James is proud of its 130 year history and to this day, still craft these chic marinières in France. If you haven’t yet experienced the splendour of striped chic, now is the time. Attendance is free, but registration is required. Book your ticket today
