Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 11.46.25 AMIt’s the City of Love. And yes, the City of Lights. No matter how you refer to it, we think Paris is one of the most consistently chic cities on the planet. In this new volume, Parisian Chic: THE LOOK BOOK, it’s the perfect companion to her best-selling Parisian Chic and Parisian Chic City Guide. In them Ines de la Fressange shares style secrets that result in the born-with-it elegance and effortless chic that make her a Parisienne style icon both to women at home in France, and here in America.

In PARISIAN CHIC: THE LOOK BOOK, de la Fressange demonstrates how to achieve her quintessentially Parisian style starting with the wardrobe building blocks—a LBD that can be dressed up or down, classic riding boots you’ll wear for a lifetime, or the perfect pair of jeans—which she combines with panache to suit every situation. And then she pinpoints the key accessories—the perfect jeweled flats, the lustrous handbag in an unexpected jewel-tone, the piece of statement jewelry that will become your signature—to ramp up your look from okay to “oh, wow!”

For whenever you say “What should I wear today?”, Parisian Chic: The Look Book is like having Ines by your side to guide you—with her unerring eye, trademark wit, and the ineffable French savoir faire that Ines embodies, and the rest of us strive to achieve.

You likely know that Ines de la Fressange, author of the best-selling Parisian Chic and Parisian Chic City Guide, was a runway model in the 1980s, became the face of Chanel, created her own clothing and accessories line, and published her illustrations in Elle.

She is brand ambassador for Roger Vivier, designs a line for Uniqlo, and recently relaunched her own brand Ines de la Fressange Paris in a charming shop on the Left Bank in Paris.
