Artist's Description

Vive le beret!

From the lyrics of the French song……

Oh je veux partir sur la seule route où il y a du vent
Je suis la jeune fille aux cheveux blancs

Oh, I only want to go on the road with the wind
I’m the young girl with the white hair…

Je suis à l’age où l’on ne dort nulle part
I am at the age where we do not sleep nowhere
Les seuls lits dont je rêve sont des quais de gare
The only beds of my dreams are docks on the station
J’ai loué un placard pour mes robes d’hiver
I rented a closet for my winter clothes…

Oh, I only want to go on the road with the wind
I’m the young girl with the white hair

Dedicated to Paris, the love of French, and the look of the beret.

A little History:
Records reveal that the French Berets were worn as far back as ancient times which would be circa fifth century BC. It seems like the Greeks were the first proponents of the beret and the same was picked up by the Romans who called it the beretino. So the true origin of the Berets can be traced back to the Romans who actually classified what color berets could be worn by aristocrats and commoners.
The trend eventually caught on with the Basque people who adopted it for their own use. In Spanish and Basque it is termed the Beret Basque or boina. How it was passed on to the French is still a mystery.
