Not just another take on the classic Breton top – this is actually an archive design from the 1970s, going by the name of the S.N.S. Herning striped naval top.
A gem from the Danish company’s 1979 range – and still looking sharp in 2010. For your money, you get a striped crewneck pullover that’s knitted in virgin wool, with three metal buttons on the collar, and with a slim fit.
Each piece is also signed by the person responsible for knitting it. Which I suppose is your guarantee of quality. Price? Available online for £159.

With nautical trends coming back round into mainstream fashion for yet another Spring season, there's plenty of high street brands waiting to be raided by retro lovers. This Rosette Stripe Tunic by AX Paris taps into a sixties interpretation of the trend, providing a perfect daytime dress for the sunnier months.
The mini hemline works well with a looser fit, with only a light shirred waistline and capped sleeves to add a fitted touch. The horizontal breton stripes, rosette feature and bold navy trim combine to create a Parisian-inspired look that carries just enough vintage appeal for casual daywear.
