There’s no city like Paris. City of love, fashion capital, art and culture hub – anyone can find anything here. The women of Paris are considered the best-dressed in Europe and beyond. Not surprising, really, after all, some of the world’s most famous fashion houses are based in the metropolis by the Seine river. For example Dior, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent or Gaultier, to name but a few French couturiers. Fashion is as much part of the DNA of Paris as baguettes, the Louvre or the Eiffel Tower.
Paris chic can be experienced in many ways. For example in the recently opened Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris at the Hôtel Particulier, which was the home of the fashion house until 2002, or in the exclusive Coco Chanel Suite at the legendary Hôtel Ritz. If the €28,000 a night are a tad too pricey, you are bound to find stylish alternative accommodation in one of the five hotels in Paris furnished by the designer Christian Lacroix. Paris chic avec grande finesse. Paris chic is also the theme of the new bugatti women’s collection. Key pieces are trendy oversized blouses or particularly tailored slim fit versions.
Simply wear a modern blazer or also a light knitted jumper. The informal, relaxed look is perfected by smart-casual jackets and coats. This style is perfect for a stroll past the exclusive boutiques on the Rue Saint Honoré or a walk in the Bois de Bologne. Talking about walking and footwear: Ideal are athletic sneakers or summery ballerinas. The last finish touch needed for authentic Paris chic are perfectly matching accessories, of course. A casual bag with a matching purse provides space for money and more.
