The Brigitte Bardot Vichy Look

Blazer / Jackets/ Dresses/ Romantique/ Shirts/ Skirts/ Wardrobe

I love wearing the French Vichy pattern (in the UK called Gingham) which gets it’s name from the French town of Vichy . The Vichy pattern is a checked pattern in the colours blue and red and their pastel cousins. For me, it represents a rural charm, fresh air, tousled hair and Brigitte Bardot, who made the look famous. She wore a classic powder pink dress on her wedding day to Jacques Charrier.

Above: I wear a Vichy checked jumpsuit from Max Mara (and, you would have guessed, Pretty Ballerinas). Below: Kepping it classic in white and pink (Gant shirt). Rebel wears a Vichy Blazer from TK Maxx. French Supermodel Laetitia Casta wearing a Vichy patterend dress.

Ich liebe Klamotten mit Vichy Mustern. Das Vichy Muster besteht aus Karos in blau, rot oder pastellfarben und hat seinen Namen aus der franzoesischen Stadt Vichy. Ich verbinde mit dem Look frische Luft, laendlichen Charm, verwuschelte Locken und Brigitte Bardot, die diesen Look wieder in Mode brachte. Zu ihrer Hochzeit mit Jacques Charrier trug sie ein hell rosanes Vichykarokleid.
