To be sure not to be left out...



At the forefront of fashion in the 60s and then forgotten, the famous gingham pattern is back on the scene (for our greatest pleasure)... 

We tell you all about this fabric that is part of our latest collection!

A little history...

In the 19th century, the textile industry was booming in France. Emperor Napoleon III, proud of this development, decided to visit many factories, including the spinning mill of Grivats in Cusset (neighboring Vichy) where is manufactured a beautiful white and lilac striped pattern: the ancestor of the gingham pattern. Empress Eugenie fell in love with this fabric and launched the fashion of this print in France. 


It is only at the beginning of the XXth century that the stripes become the checks as we know them today 


Femininity in gingham

Popularized by Brigitte Bardot on the cover of Elle magazine in 1953 and then at her wedding with a pink checkered dress, gingham has conquered women around the world for over 50 years. 


From Marilyn Monroe to Marion Cotillard through Lady Di or Jennifer Aniston in Friends, the gingham pattern is worn by these free and daring women who have marked fashion with elegance!


It was therefore obvious that it was a source of inspiration for the Elleanor de Provence outfits...
