Given I have a tendency to live in stripes, I always make an effort to not wear them, otherwise I would be left with a wardrobe or drawer of striped garments. I also have a thing for fair isle but Mr MDS is a bit intolerant of it so over the years I've curbed this one.
Nothing could persuade me to part with my stripes so I was quite pleased when Jean Paul Gaultier presented a slight twist on the Breton top with his S/S 2010 collection.
The criss cross of striped threads with the underwear revealed, paired with arm length gold cylindrical stripes gives one another shot at displaying one's stripey wardrobe collection/love whilst embracing the new of the season.
The traditional stripe on display with the rear view. The resplendent orange fluid draped trousers allows me to continue a perennial S/S indulgence that of stripes, orange and navy blue. For some reason in spring and summer I become a creature of habit and leave experimenting behind. Mind you my top tip for this look is less cakes and more gym. With bodies being exposed from New York to London then Milan and Paris I think next season might be a body discipline challenge too far.
