Selima Optique Style Spotlight: Sailor Stripes


Nautical stripes have been a statement look since the early 20th century. Inspired by sailors, after a visit to the French coast, Coco Chanel introduced the design to the fashion world through her nautical collection in 1917.  The design is now synonymous with chic Parisian style.

Selima Optique provides this timeless pattern for one-of-a-kind sunglasses, the perfect accessory for spending time seaside in the approaching warm weather. Set adrift stylishly with the navy & white stripe "Candance" or SELIMA for JACK SPADE "Ludovic".


Find these available at all Selima Optique stores.
