One of the handful of reasons I chose August to be the month when TSLL’s Annual French Week would occur is that it is the runway leading to fall, la rentrée, as the French call it, the return to the regular, everyday schedule of school and work, which includes a refresh of our capsule wardrobes.
I want to begin by thanking long-time reader of TSLL, Deborah L. for sharing with me information about many of the brands below that were new to me, and upon learning of them, I immediately knew they would inspire today’s post.
Each of the six French brands shared below designs timeless styles that are also modern with a signature touch. These are not budget brands, but neither are they luxury brands. I would call some of them mid-luxury and accessible luxury based on the prices and fabrics used.
For each brand I have hand-picked 5-6 items that are currently available from their latest collection, but be sure to click the brand name above the collage to shop the entire site for each.
~The capped sleeve v-neck tee (three colors)
~Tessao Brody (handbag)
