    Our weakness for all things French continues, and we're not talking about our second (or third) croissant breakfast. April, May's spring '12 collection is looking to deliver pieces that satisfy our cravings for effortlessly cool clothes for the upcoming warm seasons.

    The Parisian line has switched gears from where we left them last fall, and moved on to looks that we'd be ready to rock on any mega city street or music festival venue this spring. With a nod to traditional French sailor stripes and chic neck-tied scarves, the lookbook turns the bluntly banged model into a super-femme dame draped leather and fringe, whose look (and boots) we want to steal. While our own girly girl sides are — more often than not — hibernating, the simple shirtdresses, high hems, and sequins bring out our softer sides without sacrificing our edge. Say it with us — très magnifique!
