Paris Can Wait is a feast for the eyes not only due to its geographic location set in the South of France and the exiqsuite teasing of the taste buds, but the sartorial selections as well. After sharing my review of Eleanor Coppola’s film starring Diane Lane yesterday (the Petit Plaisir of this week’s episode of the podcast #160), many asked a question I too had dancing around in my mind: Where can I find her wardrobe? From the stunning French red dress she chooses to wear to dinner on the first night of their 48 hours excursion, (I am still trying to figure out who designed it – I promise I will share if I find out), to the simple sophisticated linen taupe pants and white linen top finished with espadrilles, Lane’s wardrobe is so refined and understated, it sings as though not to compete with the other magnificent sites to see, but all the while becoming quite the star of the show.
Effortless, classic, the underlining premise of building a wardrobe of quality over quantity which enables the woman wearing the clothing to shine.
While I have looked all over the web for the exact label of linen pants without finding the precise pair, I have found many that are similar at a variety of price points. I have also found espadrilles and white linen shirts for you to peruse as well (see all these items at the end of the post). I do hope you find something you love.
And now, even more linen inspiration. Enjoy!

Having the opportunity to update this post four years later I can now share the actual brand of tote Diane Lane’s character slung over her shoulder throughout the entire film. It was from Tods. A luxury item, and one that if you have the opportunity to welcome it into your wardrobe, you will have it for the rest of your life. I have shopped the current collection from Tods to share with you the similar style, as well as other brands with a similar design.

Many readers asked about the camera that Diane regularly used to snap images that many of us would have done with our phones, and while many of us will continue to capture such moments with our phones, if you are curious, I have found the brand, and it is a high-quality, luxury camera, and trusted brand worth exploring.
The brand is German and it is Leica. I have not been able to find the gold shade that was seen in the film, but be sure to explore their entire website as they have many designs. And most of them are compact and capable of capturing high-pixelated images.
Hopefully, you’ve found one item that speaks to your style and reminds you of traveling about in France, from the Mediterranean through Provence and all the way back up north to Paris. (And may you find yourself in France soon!)
Thank you for stopping by and bonne journée.
