The Bold Brights style epitomizes a modern woman who is ready for any new opportunity that comes her way. She's independent, driven, and forward-thinking. She's willing to take a few risks, and doesn't shy away from a challenge, whatever it may be. If she's not working late into the night, she'll be out on the town at a sleek restaurant or the latest club, ready for her next adventure.
Her style: primary colour blocks with minimal sculptural lines.
Our Sixties Revival woman is a true socialite. At any hour, on any occasion, she's soaking up life out in the city. She's feminine, retro chic, and always up on the latest happenings. She thrives off the energy of people, whether strolling down Paris' Rue de Rennes or attending a friend's birthday party. She can be found at the latest pop-up restaurant, or perhaps out for a cocktail at a rooftop bar.
Her style: warm playful pastels meet textured metallics with high shine layers.
Our Parisienne Chic woman lives up to her name: sophisticated, calm, elegant. She is both vivid and graceful, and has an eye for detail. She is always prepared - it's in her nature - and knows just what to say at the right time. She can be spotted at the corner table of a quiet bistro in the evening, or perhaps enjoying a simple but delicious meal in her own kitchen. She has a weakness for sweets.
Her style: graphic, monochrome combined with floral silks for a vivid tactile contrast.
Our woman of Fabulous Folklore is a woman of the arts. She loves music and theatre and colour - and has tried her hand at all three. She's dramatic and moody at times, but also decisive and well-composed under pressure. She's not afraid to stand out from the crowd - and often does, whether or not she's trying. She can be seen at all types of concerts, whether the Opéra Bastille or the Halle aux Grains, and knows every gallery opening in town. She spends the afternoon in a faded, wingback chair of her favourite cafe where coffee refills are unlimited.
Her style: a rich blend of layered textures and patterns combined with both simplicity and opulence.
Our Simple Lux woman is confident and glamorous. She goes about her day with an air of knowing exactly what to do - because she does. She is sophisticated, but has a soft side, too. And she does not deprive herself of life's luxuries. She enjoys dinner at a quiet, intimate restaurant, or spends the evening sipping a glass of pinot noir at a low-light wine bar.
Her style: a simple, flowy elegance - comfortable, yet sleek.
