|A virtual twist on the classic sailor T-shirt from the editors of French Elle featuring a bust of Marc Jacobs.|
Daily, I get flash bulletins from French Elle. It keeps me au courant on what happening in the fun-filled world of fashion in France and beyond.
|The pure classic.|
In a recent news bite (or is it byte?) I was informed that Elle was hosting a petit design project with Petit Bateau, maker of what I and millions of others consider one of the greatest T-shirt designers in the world. It’s just the way they’re cut, exquisitely flattering. The simplest white tee from Petit Bateau caresses the body in all the right ways if you know what I mean(?).
|A sweet mariniere dress from Maison Kitsune.|
As I was saying. . . the magazine with Maison Kitsune for Petit Bateau has asked its readers to take the simple, classic, never-go-wrong mariniere T-shirt and spiff it up or mess it up or do whatever they want to do with it. Then, tomorrow, 10 creative, lucky winners of the contest will be announced on the Elle website. They’ll win a T-shirt.
The editors at Elle, though not eligible to participate in the design-off, came up with their own twist on the mariniere, featuring a bust of Marc Jacobs, who — if you care — just wrapped up his career with Louis Vuitton at the recent spring collections. He will now move on to his own label.
Et voila, that’s my story for today.
