The marinière: a long tradition

Originally, the "sailor's slip" refers to the underwear worn by sailors. The stripes are designed to help locate men who fell at sea. This blue and white striped garment was adopted more particularly by Breton sailors, who made it their distinctive sign. The Russian Navy was the first marine corps to adopt the sailor's dress as an outfit for its soldiers during the 19th century. Also known as Telnyashka, the Russian sailor's uniform can have several colors of stripes: black and white or blue and white, it can be with or without sleeves. The seaman's jacket is worn not only by the Russian Navy, but also by infantry and airborne troops. This sailor symbol in non-Navy regiments has its origin in the fact that many soldiers, having served in the Navy, refused to leave their telnyashka when they were posted to other units. Considering the sailor girl as their emblem, and too proud to wear it, these soldiers therefore continue to wear the sailor girl, like the soldier Vasily Zaitsev, the figurehead of this movement. The sailor's mascot was then adopted by a good number of marines, particularly in France and Great Britain. Although of military origin, the seaman's mackintosh has long been part of the civilian wardrobe. Coco Chanel the fate of the military checkroom at the end of the Second World War. Many personalities, such as Pablo Picasso, Brigitte Bardot or Jean-Paul Gaultier, then contributed to transform the sailor dresser into a fashion icon.
