"The Parisian never gives too much away... She follows one golden rule: Less is definitely more.”

We like to think we’re pretty well-versed in navigating the Parisian je ne sais quoi flair for dressing – whether that’s by way of golden girls Jeanne Damas and Lauren Bastide, who together penned the ‘It girls’ guide to that very topic, or notes from Morgane Sézalory of lauded French fashion destination, Sézane.

If there’s one woman who equally encapsulates this effortless aesthetic and Gallic attitude, it’s timeless quintessential Parisienne and muse to ChanelCaroline de Maigret, complete with her tousled bed-head waves and innate nonchalance. That’s why, as we land on the cobbled boulevards of the City of Light for Paris Fashion Week, we’re looking to the style rules and regulations that this original influencer lives by... Less is definitely more.
