While we can daydream about spending the holidays galavanting around Paris, we'll gladly accept this more, erm, reasonable alternative, instead. From French label Petit Bateau and designer Didier Ludot comes a new holiday collaboration featuring two LBDs that encompass the best of chic French style with a retro nod to mod.
The Twiggy and Catherine designs are inspired by the iconic model and legendary actress (Ms. Deneuve), respectively, and offer two excellent reasons to update your old (faded) black standard with something that carries an extra bit of je ne sais quoi. Choose from the semi-circle pockets and slightly flared fit of the Twiggy, or the demure, peter-pan collared Catherine, both priced under $270 and guaranteed to please any Francophile. Need to dress your mini me? These frocks also come in children's sizes. Shop them all on the Petite Bateau website starting December 5.
