Bien Habillé

When you live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, style is an avocation.  It’s a talent that’s developed from living in a vibrant city with prominent architecture and splendid gardens.  It’s intrinsic to a culture that values joie de vivre.  Indeed, it’s Parisian.





Pale hues lighten the look of a sleeveless tweed dress, tailored with fringed finishes and defined at the waist with a removable belt. Style Name: Maje Rianey Cotton Blend Tweed Sleeveless Dress.


Parisians dress well because they live well.  Whether they’re savoring the aroma of a fresh baguette, arranging a bouquet of flowers, or choosing a dress that’s made to last, feeding the senses is a priority.  Women are well informed about designers and trends, but they’re not tempted by trendy fashion.  Parisians are improvisational—American sneakers, Dior sunglasses, and an Italian blazer create an eye-catching ensemble.  They’re also loyal to French labels like Maje and Isabel Marant who draws on the enchantment of Paris when designing clothes that exude a boutique aesthetic. 

In Paris, fashion is a medium for engaging with the city that thrives on love.  The Maje collection features smart silhouettes that complement the jaunty spirit of une jeune femme.  An unraveled hemline adds a rebellious twist to a tweed skirt, and there’s a youthful “I do as I please” attitude in the sassy miniskirts.  Women adore Equipment’s signature silk shirts because they feel good and add a touch of sophistication to any occasion.  And Isabel Marant--always au courant--juxtaposes effervescent ruffles with tomboy boots to express her magnetic style.

Perhaps it’s the daily influence of living in a historic European capital, or simply an abiding respect for artisanal goods, either way, Parisians have mastered the art of chic style.
