Trunk Show: Saint James

April 20, 2019 - April 21, 2019


Dovecote Style

Saint James has been drawing inspiration from the sea facing, windswept land of sailors sandwiched between Normandy and Brittany and a stone’s throw from Mont Saint-Michel for well over a century. Jumping on the bandwagon of a thousand-year-old textile tradition, Saint James began knitting their famous sailor “sweater” in the XIXth century. This sweater, made of wool from the land, was so tightly knit that it was considered to be waterproof and perfect for sailors fishing in the freezing cold seas of the North Atlantic. As the years passed, fishermen, sailors and pleasure boaters have turned this authentic sailor sweater into an iconic item of clothing and in doing so, raised the profile of Saint James to that of a great French brand with a unique savoir-faire.

The Saint James range now includes everything from striped tees to dresses to great jackets in the most luxurious fabrications – including a special fabrication that protects against harmful solar rays with easy care, drying and breathing properties. One of my most favorite lines for summer – and beyond!
