Don’t call it French girl style
Thanks Keep it Chic for the heads-up on Vanessa Seward’s book.
The Gentlewoman’s Guide is Seward’s take on fashion and style from a shy girl’s perspective, which I totally relate to. Born in Argentina, educated In London and living in Paris, the designer and artist tells WWD, “I’m fascinated by all this kind of English, Anglo-Saxon culture, which actually French people sometimes don’t understand at all. It’s just like all the understatement thing or the self-deprecation. I do it all the time, because it’s a kind of twist. It’s also a good shy person’s armor.”
The Gentlewoman’s Guide by Vanessa Seward is published today in French. I’m keeping eyes peeled for an English version.
