Fashion’s fixation with stripes finds its origin in a garment called the marinière. This item of clothing – a navy/white, wool or cotton sweater with 21 stripes – was born in 1858 as part of the Act of France that named the navy-and-white striped knit that served as the uniform for the French navy. Interestingly, each stripe tallied up Napoleon’s military victories.
