1. Elegance of Black and White Dressing

2. Decedent Lace detailing
From Christian Lacroix to Chanel – lace is perfection.

3. Statement Luxury HandBags
Think the Chanel 2.5 quilted bag, Hermès Kelly bag, Louis Vuitton’s Monogram bags – French Fashion houses know how to do handbags.

4. Understated Dressing
Minimal, chic and understated elegance – French style has just the right amount of everything without being overdone.
