Ahoy Sailor…

Ladybug is here to tell the story behind the Navy trend… It all started in 1910… when Coco Chanel inspired by marines… introduced the masculine look to her women’s line… After facing a few controversy… the look was never forgotten again… Since… The biggest names in fashion have used the white and blue stripes in their collections… Yves Saint Laurent… Jean Paul Gaultier… Kenzo… Sonia Rykiel… And it is now one of the most copied garment in the fashion industry… We can find this motif on tops, jackets, bottoms, dresses etc… But the original piece… will always be “La Mariniere” from Coco Chanel…

Replica of "La Mariniere" in the movie COCO avant Chanel
