Stripes and polka dots are much more than simply a trend: they are a graphic print which made the history of fashion.
The stripes were born in Portugal and they were originally worn by the Baiadera, the Portugal dancers; then in the early 1920s Madame Madeleine Vionnet drew a pleated dress which is the fashionable precursor of the stripes that we’ll see for years till nowadays, combined with floral and colorful patterns.
Polka dots, otherwise, joins the fashion world in the '30s and explodes into the pin-up’s clothes and corsages during the ‘50s.
Stripes and polka dots become more and more two evergreen patterns that have never left our closets and that allow you to create both the most chic and the most casual looks.

Stripes always come back, and anytime they become the favorite pattern: for trousers, skirt, and even for the plateau of the shoes. They can make look everything longer and play with the shapes of the bodies, can be colorful and humorous, but also classy and chic. That’s why we love them.
