Current obsession: Referee/jailbird stripes

So many diverse designers showed black and white stripes for spring 2013, it’s as if they all got the memo.

Particularly fetching for me—
Stripes looking fresh on an evening gown at Oscar de la Renta
With an 80s-90s vibe at Michael Kors
Dolce & Gabbana, invoking the 1950s
A 60s mod look at Moschino

Black and white stripes have regularly made the fashion rounds—
Silk evening shoes 1860-70, British, Met Museum

1920s bathing beauty

Bernard Newman gown worn by a fashion model in the film Roberta (1935)
Gene Tierney in Laura (1944)

Judy Garland, 1945

Harper’s Bazaar, May 1957
Qui êtes-vous, Polly Maggoo? (1966)
Anjelica Huston, Vogue, 1970s
Rifat Ozbek stripes and Graham Smith straw hat, 1980s
