Provenance

Babar the elephant first appeared in the 1931 French children's book Histoire de Babar by Jean de Brunhoff, inspired by a story that his wife Cécile invented for their children. When Babar's mother is killed by a hunter, he is adopted by an Old Lady, who hires him a tutor. He returns to the jungle in his iconic green suit and is named King of the Elephants. What follows in the subsequent Babar books written and illustrated both by Jean de Brunhoff, and by his son, Laurent, is a potent mixture of glamorous, mid-century jet-set travel; family dramas and diversions, feasts and parties; and, of course, occasional matters of state. The Babar books have been translated into many different languages from the original French, and have delighted generations of children and adults around the world. "Babar for me, is like a French, pachyderm James Bond -- with a family and a crown," says Rowing Blazers founder Jack Carlson. "He has a perfect wardrobe; great adventures; and he always travels in style: whether he's skiing in Switzerland, picking up an honorary degree at Harvard, or surveying Egyptian ruins." We're very proud to be collaborating with our favorite fictional elephant, and to introduce the first Babar x Rowing Blazers collection.
