There’s something so satisfying about when a true wardrobe classic is heralded a “trend” in any given season. This essentially means that the item is, most likely, already sitting in your wardrobe and that its renewed energy will yield plenty of fresh outfit inspiration for the year ahead. This season, this has manifested in the humble Breton knit. Embraced by the likes of Celine and Totême, the Breton 2.0 is defined by its stunning simplicity: the timeless cream, white and navy colourways; the lack of adornment; and the clean silhouettes that are usually reserved for menswear.
This is my “Emily in Paris finally gets the hang of French-girl dressing” outfit. It’s a cool mix of ’60s-inspired silhouettes, classic tailoring via the trench coat, then a hit of avant-garde thanks to the knee-high patent boots.
