Sailor collars and trompe l'oeil

Elsa Schiaparelli's 1927 hand knitted sweater is my absolute favourite shirt ever! I would do anything, and I mean anything, to get my hands on one of these. Apparently when this shirt first came out it elicited a similar reaction from young women. This shirt combines two of my most sought after design elements, that being the sailor collar and trompe l'oeil. Maybe Sonia Rykiel's love of trompe l'oeil can be paired with A.P.C.'s sailor collar to make the ultimate modern version of this sweater.
