Vying for the title of France's most fashionable femme fatale are the likes of Marion Cotillard, Juliette Binoche and Audrey Tatou.

This trio of award-winning actresses have characterized power and passion onscreen and embody the image and style many modern woman aspire to. 

The theme of confident femininity is certainly in fashion. UK retailer Marks & Spencer have used it as a key inspiration for their Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, which is now available online for customers via its French website. 

The overarching mood is that of celebrating the female form with the sense to suit an individual woman’s style and mood.

It’s all about revitalising the way modern women want to dress and inspiring new directions to the season’s quintessential winter wardrobe.

 

 

Femme Fatale
Grown-up glamour can be yours to own with an elegant mix of retro-inspired fashion. Create a leading lady look that contrasts strong colours with delicate textures to softly accentuate the female form. The result brings out the complexity of the classic femme fatale that’s hidden in all of us.

Modern Elegance
Sophistication isn’t always about flaunting femininity to its extreme. This is where softly androgynous design meets luxe fabrics and muted colours. Minimal tailoring with a touch of masculine glamour makes a powerful fashion statement, which radiates influence and elegance from top to toe.

Dark Drama
When nothing other than pure decadence will do. Rich colours, textures, brocades and embellishments are adorned and adored. Take time to truly indulge in luxury, opulence and romance with a dramatic, glamourous evening look.

London Calling
Bold checks and Chelsea boots are back to put their stamp on a rebellious spirit of individuality. Warm, tactile knits are a perfect addition for the winter season while sleek leathers and animal prints give a sense of strong attitude in a vivid palette of red and black.
