Hello Sailor!


It’s been in my wardrobe for many years - the breton striped t-shirt. A perfect basic, classic, easy to combine and a strong history.

The traditional breton striped shirt in fine knit with a 3/4 sleeve or longer, a boat neck and has 21 navy and white stripes. Each stripe represents one of Napoleon’s victories.

The Breton stripe was designed for French sailors - The stripe to help find sea-men who fell overboard. It then went on to be officially added to the uniform of the French marines.

The legend that is Coco Chanel then got involved. She fell in love with the look of the sailors (would ya blame her?!) and was often seen wearing the stripes and added them into her collections. This was in the 60’s with the likes of icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O, Brigette Bardot and Picasso often spotted donning stripes - today a wardrobe staple.


Our new collection of Breton Featherlight Cashmere Sweaters are a very natural addition to the Rae Feather brand - with simplicity comes longevity. Classic pieces with staying power that will take you everywhere, through every season. I hope you love the colours - Pink is my fav!!

Happy Weekend! xxx
