Stripes

Daphne van den Heuve said on her website, an interesting story about the stripes in the fashion world:

“Striped fabric was used in clothing for sailors and prisoners because it stands out from nature so much. When a sailor would fall overboard or a prisoner would escape they could be found more easily. Later on it became a fabric used in fashionable clothing (Coco Chanel used it too).

Her illustrations are very good, look:
