  • Bretons To Love Forever

    Ever wondered why the Breton top holds such iconic status? We put it down to its enduring appeal. Ever since Coco Chanel popularised the design in 1930, it has transcended trends, maintaining relevance right up to today. With its origins in naval uniform, its egalitarian nature means it can be worn dressed-up, dressed-down, layered or solo. A top for any occasion? We think so.
