"When I see someone in navy, I think they are sophisticated, effortless, not trying too hard but with an innate sense of style. It is more forgiving than black, less harsh and carries with it a subtle whiff of sophistication. It stripes better than any other colour, and looks both classic and sharp at the same time."
-Jane Shepherdson, CEO of Whistles
Navy has long been coveted by stylish women, from Coco Chanel's nautical stripes, to navy blue jeans. Kate Phelan, creative director of Topshop cites her favourite navy moments include "Bob Dylan in a pea coat and Ali McGraw in navy T-shirt and white jeans in Love Story."
The perfect alternative (or partner) to monochrome outfits, navy is universally flattering and practical. Our AVA and ADELE have been given a navy overhaul, allowing you to tap into the trend as subtley or statement as you wish, depending on what you style your bag with. Our current favourite way to wear it is paired with neutrals and a classic white shirt, with a tonal navy coat to keep you warm in the winter.
Shop ADELE or AVA in French Navy.
