  • A French woman is disciplined from youth to establish a collection of simple, classic, well cut and essential wardrobe items.
  • Her wardrobe will usually be minimal, in neutral colors, but always the best she can afford. Every item will fit to perfection and be rigorously maintained and cherished.
  • More than anything copying the unmistakable French Fashion Style means choosing clothes to flatter your Body Type and shape. The result is timeless elegance!

The Essentials Wardrobe... 

Building the Essentials Wardrobe doesn't mean that you have to choose these particular items. Just select the best item for the job that flatters your own figure.

An all-weather coat that fits and flatters your height; a white shirt in silk or crepe if you like more movement; a blazer or jacket in your own best neutral...

Belted Trench Coat

Designed to flatter, this classic trench is a stylish must-have. Buttonsafe™ technology uses special heat fused buttons that won't fall off.

Pintuck Shirt

Every woman needs a staple shirt and this one is likely to become the hardest working piece in your wardrobe. No Peep™ designs have a hidden placket and concealed extra buttons to prevent gaping at the front, maintaining your modesty.

Tote Bag

Love this bag! Every woman needs a classic tote in her wardrobe to take her from day to night time chic. Comes in black or orange. 


This watch is eternally chic. An elegant bracelet strap makes this watch particularly dainty.


A pair of sunnies are an essential on bright days; this pair keep your overall look wonderfully chic, with 100% UV protection.  In both black and tortoiseshell.


Endorsed by the UK College of Podiatrists, Insolia Flex® makes walking in flats more comfortable by insuring your foot is correctly placed within your shoes, and improving the natural rotational movement of the ball of the foot. The must-have shoe of the season, tap into the preppy look with these chic loafers. Exotic snake-design is timelessly glamorous in Navy or Neutral. 


Choose your own favorite jeans style - cut-offs for the warm, straight, skinny, bootcut or a relaxed fit.
