Ooh La La - Armor Lux x Topshop

There are few things as synonymous with France as the Breton top. Designed as a way of locating sailors tossed overboard, the Breton was introduced as in 1858 as the official uniform for the French navy; The original had 21 stripes, each stripe representing one of Napoleon's victories. However, it's probably fair to say that the association with the tiny general has all been but lost, since replaced by images of Audrey Hepburn, Jean Paul Gaultier and of course, Brigitte Bardot, looking resplendent in stripes.
Alongside Frédérique Tietcheu and red wine, the Breton is one of our favourite French exports. So it was with no small amount of glee, that we discovered that Armor Luxwho two years ago celebrated 70 years of perfect stripes with a lovely coffee table book, have collaborated with Toppers on a four-piece collection of French fisherman vibes.



























The collection is available online and in the Oxford Circus Flagship store.
