ANOTHER FAVORITE BRAND FROM FRANCE: A.P.C.

apc1

I have been talking about my favorite fashion brands and another favorite French one is A.P.C. Their clothes always have a great fit and are made of high quality fabrics. I recently bought their chambray linnen dress and top (featured here in this post). The chambray skirt is also on my wish list but I could not find it in my size. This entire line is almost sold out everywhere. Below I have listed the shops where some of these items are still available.

THE FASHION FILES: BOHEMIAN CHIC FRENCH FASHION

mm6

When it comes to buying new clothing pieces I mostly stick to my favorite fashion brands. One of these is French label Mes Demoiselles. Anita Radovanovic is the life and soul of the brand- through her varied inspirations, she invites us to travel into dream-like lands, where vintage charm flirts with modernity in volumes. Anita created her first Mes Demoiselles collection in 2006, in the first Parisian workshop at 45, rue Charlot. Here are some of my favorite pieces from this years summer collection. Very bohemian chic! I will be sharing more of my favorite brands in the coming weeks. Above: gorgeous silk Carioca dress (now with 25% discount).
