Stripes for the spring

With recent springtime temps In New York City, I took a long walk north on Fifth Avenue. Stripes were everywhere and I noticed that there were two kinds. Both have been around for more than 100 years. Both provide a deep emotional connection to their devoted fans and both attract a bevy of stars.

One set of stripes wooed Chanel, Dior and Balenciaga while the other wooed Gehrig, Mantle and Jackson.


Classic brands, the brown and the blue. And the stripes belong to …?

    Too easy. Henri Bendel and the Yankees. Who doesn’t know that?

    This blog is pointless.

    I would say welcome, Tamara, but it doesn’t sound as though you’ll be sticking around. Here’s hoping you find a blog which is more suited to your liking.

    Thanks for the answers.

    I was going to say Henri Bendel and the Yankees, but instead I’ll say that curiosity is never pointless.

    I thought this was rather interesting. I’m not into designers, nor do I live in NYC, therefore, never would have said Bendel. Really.
