After New York, London and Milan it’s now Paris‘ turn to show what they’ve got. For many, the city of love is the embodiment of vogue, fashion. Haute Couture is a French word. Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Alexander McQueen, Hermès, Kenzo, Givenchy, Balmain, to name just a few, are French brands. They are at the very top of fashion world and it makes me wonder: what secret do the French hold that makes them such irresistible pioneers of fashion?
Coco Chanel, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Caroline de Maigret and Vanessa Paradis – these women own the perfect mix of rock’n’roll and classic. So what is their secret?
Keeping it simple: Coco Chanel herself said: “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off“. Instead of bowing to current trends, you have to find a way to incorporate them into the wardrobe you love! As “How to be Parisian wherever you are“ advises, an Parisian outfit consists of basics mixed with just one eye-catcher.
