Parisian Chic ~

Model Inès de la Fressange shares her secrets to glamour and style in her new book “Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Inès de la Fressange”.
There are many fashion capitals across the globe ~ New Yorkers are known for their impeccably chic fashion choices, old school glam in Milan, and multitudes of layers are worn in London… however, few city styles are as timeless and elegant as Paris.
Lending her advice on how to mix luxury pieces with affordable basics, as well as accessorizing, Inès accessibly explores topics ranging from ‘Fashion Faux Pas at 50+’ to how to effortlessly look like a million Euros. After all, when in Paris, who wants to look like a turista?
“The little black dress is not simply an item of clothing, it’s a concept. It’s abstract, it’s universal–which means there’s one that’s perfect for everybody.” ~ Inès

Inès, once the face of Chanel, recommends her favourite addresses for finding fashion and decorating items, as well as delving into subjects such as throwing fabulous dinner parties. A must for any woman who wants to add that ‘je ne sais quoi’ to her own style and château.

With her tips on what to wear, where to shop and dine, and places to stay in the City of Light, you are sure to be très chic! After all, when in Paris, who wants to look like a touriste?

Parisian Chic is due to arrive in bookstores on April 4th, available in French and English.
