Unapologetically, Gainsbourg

The French poet, singer-songwriter, Casanova, actor, director and artist Serge Gainsbourg was consistently over-the-top, controversial, kind, good natured, uniquely stylish and coarsely unapologetic throughout his career.

There comes in every age a man who makes the world accept all his vices. It is not only acceptance that he ordains but a celebration of his socially ‘deviant’ ways. Such a man rises from the confines of morality because he becomes one and only.

His daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg told Vanity Fair that he was always “… very touching… very generous” and taxi drivers in Paris still recall stories about his generosity. Not to say we derive inspiration from the amorous man but we do admire his iconic stature, almost fearfully, for being the ‘player’ that he was and for making music that took the world by storm.

And who wouldn’t envy the man who held the company of women like France Gall, Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot?

Seeing Stripes

We all know how the story of the classic “nautical” stripes goes. Coco Chanel, Brigitte Bardot, Alexa Chung and Jackie Kennedy – the fashion makers adored them. And while these vintage lines have their own glamour, we have somehow, in the last few seasons noticed our wardrobe space being taken over by the Spring’s colourful stripes.
And that’s exactly the case this season too – the stripes are bigger, bolder and brighter.

Spring Stripes

Think nautical stripes in neat silhouettes, feminine cuts, and a vibrant colour palette.

You can find your stripes for the season at Sher Singh with the ‘Oh Carol’ Dress, the Brigitte Dress and the Donna Top.

Look, Between the Lines

Coco Chanel fell in love with the sailor’s stripes in the early 20th Century and ever since then the nautical lines have been timelessly trendy. There is something glamorously vintage about the way these dramatic lines tell a woman’s story.

And guys, you too can walk the line with our New Striped Collection for Men. Choose your pick from the Navy Striped Nautical Henley, the Red Striped Nautical Henley. the Striped Polo in Black & White and the Striped Polo in Red & White.
