French Navy

I absolutley love all things nautically inspired. I remember when I got my first French Vogue magazine the pages of Military/Sailor inspired looks touched me in the deep core of my nautical-hungry soul. I don't know what it is about the blues, reds, whites, canvas materials, oxford shoes, and loafers that make me feel so good and close to the sea which I love. Here's a photo of my favorite sailor hat which I decided to follow with some photos of inspiration. I love the vintage, sailor feel each one emits.

Ay, Ay Captain!


Robert Redford

Audrey Hepburn

Brigitte Bardot

Coco Channel

I find it interesting that the famous "french stripes" were originally worn by sailors who were considered of "low rank." Who knew the trend would grace the future pages of Vogue magazines everywhere...

Another source of inspiration stems from one of my all time favorite songs from my all time favorite bands, I present to you for your listening pleasure, "French Navy" by Camera Obscura.
