The Breton top or stripy top is back... yet again. Not that it really ever goes away, in fact, it should be added to our 'must haves' in the wardrobe. Brought to fashion attention by no other than Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel, the 'mariniere', oozes chic and is timeless. This A/W season sees it reworked as a sweater. Unless you are heading to cooler climates for a week-end or for holidays, for us Singers, cotton and linen versions are a safer bet.
