I never tire of these. The classic breton top. A few of my favourite starlet snaps from the style files.

If you are ever after a real classic breton shirt, check out: i sea stripes. The owner imports them from the Ukraine, the actual shirts that the military use!! They are reasonably priced and I have bought several. I leave them large and oversized, or do a quick and easy stitch job to slim them down. I really, really recommend them for a wardrobe staple.

Beauties on Bikes

After this post on …And God Created Woman I wanted to take another look at Brigitte Bardot and her bike. The bicycle is one of the iconic european symbols. I like how Juliette rides in pencil skirts and bare feet but never looks “undone”. Here is another of Bardot on her bike:

Breathless à la Vogue

US Vogue, Oct 1990. Photographed: Ellen Von Unwerth. Starring: Christy Turlington

I love catching fashion editorials that take from the movies. It’s always fun to see how someone reinvents and interprets the stylistic traits of a character. It’s also a good excuse to dig around and pull out editorials from days gone by (and which one’s are still vivid in our memories!).

I couldn’t help use yesterday’s post as an excuse to look again at one of my most darling films, Breathless, reinterprets here for US Vogue, October 1990 by Ellen Von Unwerth. Enjoy!!
