Top of our most wished listing is Swedish model Totême’s tackle the traditional Breton (£400), which has barely outsized proportions with a vent on the sides and a roll neck. Totême’s minimal uniform strategy to dressing is the epitome of stylish: it’s that Scandi factor that we Brits typically attempt to recreate with various levels of success. The excellent news is that just about the whole excessive avenue has paid homage to this explicit sweater: Hole’s model offered out instantly; Topshop’s (£42) flips the color stability; Zara’s (left) is a palms down cut price and Cos’s tackle the fashion comes with a zip-neck element (£79).
The even higher information is a Breton jumper by no means dates. Initially a knitted fishing shirt, the lightness of the highest and the distinct stripes meant should you fell overboard you’d be straightforward to identify within the water. Happily, it’s now extra of a dry land hit, given iconic fashion standing by each Coco Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier, who included the Breton stripe in his first high fashion present. Universally recognised as a marker of stylish weekend put on, it goes effectively with denims, loafers and a trench coat, or over a slip gown (or skirt) with chunky boots for an immediately cool look. Preserve equipment to a minimal: easy gold jewelry and a traditional cross-body bag are sufficient.
