Get the Feeling: A la Parisienne

Paris is the capital of love in the world. There is a feeling about this city that is special and unique. The architecture, the food, the people; everything is inspiring romance!

The 2012 Resort collection by Louis Vuitton is all about the Parisian feeling: romance, elegance and "Vavavoom".
It's chic and fun. Love it!

To get more of the romantic Paris inspiration, let's talk more about a few inspiring Parisians.

One of the most important icons of the Parisian fashion, is the pin up, actress and model Brigitte Bardot.

During the end of the 50's till the 70's Brigitte used to be one of the most popular women in the world, with her sensual beauty and adventurous spirit.

Until now her beauty is so appreciated in fashion, that now and then some model that looks like her get the spotlight. For example, Claudia Schiffer in the 90's, and now Lara Stone.


Another interesting thing about Paris, it's that it's the land of fashion illustrators. The Numero, which is a french magazine, is famous for specially caring about pretty artistic and fashionible illustrations.

We spoke some months ago about Margarite Sauvage's sweet and sexy illustrations.

This time I'd like to show you a bit of René Gruau, Monsieur Qui and Sophie Griotto.

Those three illustrators are sharp talents: each one has their own style. René Gruau does cabaret style, very french images. Monsieur Qui does very artistic fashion images, also lifestyle and fun cartoons. Sophie Griotto is very feminine and explores girl lifestyle and high fashion playing with colors and shapes.


Another subject that can be explored about the Parisian feeling is the Hollywood films that explore the city and it's wonders, such as Breakfast at Tiffany's and Moulin Rouge.

Breakfast at Tiffany's is a fairy tale about a girl who has to chose between a rich man and a glamorous life, or a beautiful guy that has not so much money, but a lot of real love to give her. It's romantic and elegant: famous for Audrey Hepburn performance and her Hubert Givenchy outfit.

Moulin Rouge is a musical famous for it's beautiful burlesque performances; also it's heartbreaking story. Nicole Kidman is Satine, a cabaret dancer that falls in love and wants to move on to a new life.

Breakfast at Tiffany's would be quite Sophie Griotto style and Moulin Rouge more like René Gruau.

So I hope you didn't get an overdose of Paris with this post, and instead a huge inspiration for your life and wardrobe. Paris is the beautiful city of light... inspirational at it's most!
