Color me French. The Frenchies are taking over and I, for one, couldn’t be more excited. I’m not talking about French Bulldogs, the chien de choix of the fashion set, though I seriously can’t get enough of them. I mean the élégant, fit, fabulous French ladies who’ve been circling the American fashion stratosphere, teasing us with their accents and wit and to-die-for ensembles.
Garance Doré for Kate Spade
I’m sure you know that illustrator/blogger/photographer/eternal fiancé of The Sartorialist Garance Doré has produced an adorable capsule collection for Kate Spade. I love these pieces. Sadly I ordered the Pardon My French tee in the wrong size and now it’s totally sold out in everything but skinny-French-girl sizes. Boo. At least Santina scored one! I’m thinking I may just shell out $128 for the joie de vivre! sweatshirt, though. I can totally see it with everything from skinnies to wide-leg black trousers. Do you dig?

See? Perfect French cheekiness, just as Garance pointed out. Meet the girls:
