I know this dress looks pretty plain, but once temperatures (finally) reach +30C, it will be the only thing I’ll want to wear. As you know, I’ve been on a French brand kick lately, having recently featured Saint James. Well, here’s another cotton wonder that dates back a century, and this one also calls itself a “saint.”
Le Mont Saint Michel was founded in 1913, and in 1998 it was purchased by Alexander Milan of the famed Tricotages de l’Aa stitch factory (they produce fabrics for the likes of Agnes b and Joseph). He combined the knitwear traditions of Tricotages with the workwear aesthetic of Le Mont into one powerhouse label, with collections ranging from simple t-shirts to intricate sweater coats.
