Concept & Inspiration
Coco Chanel, the legendary designer, was also a motivating factor towards the survival of maritime fashion. Chanel began selling a jersey version of the striped Breton top in 1917, pairing it with wide-leg trousers and a thick belt, yet she was frequently seen wearing striped sweaters and bell-bottom style 'yachting pants' on the bohemian French Riviera during the 1920s, undoubtedly increasing the popularity of the style and introducing the Breton marinière into the luxury segment.
A maritime fashion illustration appeared on the cover of Vogue in 1931, depicting a lady at a ship's wheel wearing bell-bottom trousers and a striped shirt, both of which are still worn today.

From concept to reality
This fashion editorial shot was conceived months before it came to fruition. Due to the unpredictable Sri Lankan weather and other obstacles, the shoot was repeatedly postponed.
We're pleased that all worked out the way it did, though, because the end result is stunning.
