For the love of Stripes

Sunday, January 15, 2012

Daphne van den Heuvel puts her love of stripes to work in this series of fashion illustrations. Along the way, she teaches us a bit about the history of this striking, classic pattern. Apparently stripes were used to clothe sailors and prisoners because of their anti-camouflage nature. If a sailor ended up overboard or a prisoner went on the lam, the stripes would allow them to stand out and be found.
