More details

The Pretendida's knitwear has been made in Lima and knit for a slightly slouchy fit. It's knitted from a soft and fuzzy alpaca gives it a textured feel. Bi colors stripes remind us a lot about the famous french marinière, adopted by everyone, it is a classic of our closet!

Who would have thought that a simple military garment would one day become a wardrobe staple of fashionistas? Not many !

Far from the fashion world, the marinière originated in the national French Navy. Also known as the tricot rayé (striped undershirt), the marinière was actually one of the uniforms that the ordinary seamen of the national army wore. In 1858, the French army officially adopted the garment by official decree from the armed forces, which gave a strict and precise description of the true marinière. It prescribed the number of stripes, their colour, the material of the shirt, and the length of the sleeves. These criteria would distinguish it as the real deal.

 This basic shirt would have gone by unnoticed and never entered into the fashion world were it not for a young avant-garde designer who decided otherwise. At the beginning of the 1900s, the French designer Coco Chanel took the risky gamble of making this item of menswear into women’s wear, forever changing the fate of the marinère. So much so, in fact, that many big names in French fashion would take an interest in it. Re-inventing the classic garment with each spring/summer collection, these designers would make the marinière one of the most famous items of clothing.

When it comes to clothes, what do we need to invest in to get a cool and chic outfit? For this season, the answer is simple : an alpaca marinière  knitwear ! This one will make your look perfect even if you are wearing just a pair of jeans or a skirt! What are you waiting for?
