timeless stripes


why we love stripes

Stripes can be the perfect choice that offers both aesthetic appeal and practical benefits in terms of silhouette enhancement and versatility.

They can easily create a casual and playful vibe, which can be perfect for relaxed, everyday outfits or informal social occasions. Stripes can also make a fashion statement - a classic pattern that never goes out of style; able to add visual interest to an outfit and showcase personality.

breton stripe

A Breton stripe is a much loved favourite here at Celtic & Co. and is a specific type of pattern featuring horizontal stripes, typically in navy blue and white. The Breton stripe originated from the maritime heritage of Brittany, a region in France and was originally worn by French sailors in the 19th century as part of their naval uniform.

Breton stripes became a fashion staple thanks to figures like Coco Chanel, who incorporated them into nautical-inspired collections in the early 20th century. Since then, the Breton stripe has remained a classic pattern in fashion, adorning various garments such as T-shirts, sweaters, dresses, and accessories.
