What’s not to love?
Originally worn by Breton fishermen, the striped shirt became the official uniform of French sailors in 1858. They argued that, thanks to the 21 blue and white stripes, it was easier to find a man if he fell into the sea. Before this, in the Middle Ages, they were a sign of transgression with a negative connotation because of their use on black and white prisoner uniforms. Striped fabrics also made an appearance during the French Revolution, as a symbol of political upheaval. Meanwhile, in the United States, stripes, together with stars, came to embody freedom. The American flag, which appeared in 1777, symbolized the rights guaranteed by the Constitution.
In the 20th century, stripes became a key part of the fashion iconography for many brands. The pioneer was Adidas, then it was Sonia Rykiel, who began to design her own clothes at the end of the '60s. At the end of the '80s, American designer Tommy Hilfiger, further underscored the power of red, white, and blue stripes. Linked to the colors of the U.S. flag, they became a true symbol of the American dream. As the years went by, stripes became more and more a must-have in many brands; many designers took this pattern as inspiration for their collections.
Stripes can be rebellious, subversive, or emblematic, but the classic print will always be in the fashion hall of fame.
