A photo essay on French style by Geri, who yearns to be French in her next life.
I think everyone in Paris is tres chic, from the bebes in their hand-knit sweaters…
to the octogenarian who tilts her beret just so.
The moment I stepped into Miller et Bertaux, on Rue Ferdinand Duval, I knew I was going to buy something. I am wearing my purchases, a featherweight raincoat in eggplant…
and a gorgeous silk dress and scarf—with an ever-so-slightly different pattern—that designer Francis Miller adjusts perfectly.
Francis’s friend Katherine stops by his shop to say hello, wearing a belted denim skirt with a short leather jacket, that’s definitely on trend.
Saleswomen Yvette does justice to her employer’s clothes.
…nor this one, which teams a leather shirt jacket with a short-sleeved open sweater. “This is a hot trend,” said FOF Frenchwoman Cecile, who I spotted checking into a flight to New York.
So, my views are clear, but what do you think of French style?
