If there’s one place we’d kill to be when April or May rolls around, it’s Paris. Since that’s not going to happen this year, we’ll take the next best thing: ultra-chic French line April, May.
The edgy, clean-lined label is chock-full of wearable pieces with pops of subtle embellishment — drawing inspiration from both the City of Lights and the City of Angels. With a glimmering celeb fan base that includes stars like Jessica Biel and Ginnifer Goodwin, it’s no surprise it’s so in demand. Designer Diane Goldstein flawlessly fuses casual West Coast cool and Parisian sophistication, and if you ask us, the result is very Jenna Lyons-meets-Emmanuelle Alt. And the summer lookbook is certifiably impressive. Peep the pretty pics that will leave you yearning for a sweet Parisian stroll in the Tuileries (but are just as suitable for a Griffith Park picnic).
