Originally designed by the French Navy to help locate sailors after falling overboard, the Breton stripe has become one of the most recognisable prints of all time, however for a piece to be genuinely worthy of the title it has to have been made in Brittany, France.

The makers of the last authentic Breton stripe designs available today, Armor-Lux apply their signature striped design across a range of relaxed, effortless pieces alongside a range of quality designs inspired by life in their coastal environment.

For SS14, Armor-Lux have come back with a selection of classic warm weather layering pieces, perfect for summer nights when the cold draws in but it’d definitely not time to go inside.

Sourcing their materials from only the best producers and utilising the manufacturing expertise of their native Brittany, each Armor-Lux piece is built to last and can only get better with wear.
