You can now match your Kate Middleton-style Breton stripe tee with a face mask

The iconic French stripes now come in a chic summer face covering

Kate Middleton is a big fan of classic style and her summer style is definitely one to watch. That’s why we’re taking inspiration from the Duchess of Cambridge when it comes to face mask fashion, including Duchess Kate-inspired floral face coverings, and also her beloved Breton stripes! The chic French pattern has long been a warm-weather royal staple for tops, but you can also now wear them in the form of a washable and reusable face covering.

Saint James, the French company founded back in the 19th century and which pioneered Breton stripes when they designed for the French Navy, is leading the way with a very cool collection of tops and face masks to match.

The Breton striped masks, which come in a set of two for £40, are made in the same cotton as the brand’s popular striped sailor jerseys. You can get the looks in traditional colours such as navy and red, or go for a Breton stripe look in light blue or multiple hues.
