I first discovered the French heritage brand Saint James during one of my visits to France and instantly fell in love with the classic nautical inspired aesthetic that is a hallmark of the brand. With roots reaching back to the 11th century, Saint James has spent centuries perfecting and refining their garments and the way in which they are produced. Headquartered in Normandy in the shadows of the famed Mont Saint-Michel, Saint James has stayed committed to designing and producing in a traditional manner with only the finest materials, many of which are local. Investing not just in the brand but also the community that produces it, Saint James is a brand that I love supporting not just for their beautiful pieces but for their ethical approach to fashion.
Their classic Breton striped top is a staple in many a French and French inspired wardrobe and has become an absolute icon. I paired one of their classic cotton versions with this gorgeous pink coat also from the line which perfectly plays off the light pink tassel on these amazing shoes from Pretty Ballerinas.
