Entries in inès de la fressange (4)


at home with inès de la fressange

I'm a day late and a dollar short, but did you see the December/January issue of Vogue Paris? It was all about Inès de la Fressange. My favorite editorial in the publication, of course, was this feature on her Parisian home. A few years ago, I posted two photos of her flat as seen in a British Vogue piece. Much to my delight, this Vogue article gives us a much more in depth look at the space. I love her trademark pink walls and the home's overall feeling of easy, lived-in elegance. Also, I'm dying for my own giant chalkboard wall. Inès is a genius!  


inès de la fressange + british vogue

This morning, my friend Caroline texted me the above British Vogue photo of Inès de la Fressange in her Parisian apartment (she knows me so well!). The Francophile I am, I dashed to my tablet to download the publication's April issue. Lo and behold, the accompanying article - wherein Inès admits to wanting to throw her iPhone out the window each morning and says her car floors are covered in gum wrappers and crushed biscuits - was a great read. In other words, run to your nearest newsstand and pick up a copy! 

(P.S. check out Caroline's L.A. apartment. She's so stylish.) 


dans la valise de inès de la fressange

While cruising Apple's Newsstand on my iPad last night, I discovered Air France's Madame. Have you read it before? C'est très magnifique! I was delighted to find a visual list of Inès de la Fressange's packing essentials in the magazine's most recent installment. I dream of one day owning Longchamp luggage (in case you're feeling generous, this in chocolate would do just fine). I also enjoy cashmere socks... Inès and I are practically twins! I thought for sure she'd include a pair of pristine white Converse sneakers here, mais non (the former model raves about them in her book, Parisian Chic).

If you get a chance, download a few issues of Madame during today's lunch hour. If anything, it's a terribly chic (and free!) mental vacation :) 


inès de la fressange's guide to parisian chic

I don’t know about you, but the book collector in me is itching to pre-order Inès de la Fressange’s new book, The Parisian Guide to Chic. Already published in France, the book will not be available in the States until April (is it crazy that I’m considering ordering the French version?). Last week, RDuJour posted a few pages of the book which feature Inès and her sixteen-year-old daughter Nine d'Urso modeling the classics... Don’t they make you want to pre-order, too?!
