Iconic French label Petit Bateau began their journey into fashion by chopping up a pair of long johns to create underpants (They did DIY back in the 1890s!). Fast forward 117 years, and the brand still evokes that quiet Parisian chic that we all yearn to achieve. Petit Bateau's spring 2011 collection is an extension of what they're known for, including striped boatneck shirts and color-blocked tanks to bathing suits in fabrics like second-skin jersey and organic cotton. Also included are striped scarfs for a summer's eve and canvas totes to lug around your beach wares in. We don't know about you, but any one of these pieces would be comfy enough to loll around the house in.
