Stripes conjure up a lot of different images; the stereotypical French man with garlic around his neck; Coco Chanel sitting on a beach; an American prisoner in the early 20th century; a fisherman bobbing in a wooden boat; a man rowing a gondola in Venice.
In modern times, stripes offer an easy pattern for fashion to use and manipulate in creating fresh, clean designs. In a contrast to the floral trend this season, stripes offer a more graphic punch, with contrasting colors, and an array of different fabrics and styles, there is an item to capture the quirky mood of everyone looking to get lined this summer.
