Nautical Stripes

Or La Mariniere (si tu parles francais). Introduced to the fashion world by... no surprise here, Coco Chanel. I guess it goes like this: she went to the beaches of  Deauville , the fisherman were wearing striped shirts and... Voila!, the rest is history and we are wearing the white shirts with navy stripes ever since. Wish I will get so inspired at the beach also.

Coco Avant Chanel, the movie.

What would be the prefect weather for this, I wonder?
Yet Another not practical item.

Wassily Kandinsky, The Singer ~ 1903

I wonder how he knew the stripes will be in fashion.
Parce que, c'etait avant Coco.
