Back to Basics
Long walks along the Seine, a bottle of rosé, a beautiful light drenched sunset – Autumn in Paris is truly spectacular. Cool, fresh mornings are met by warm Indian summer afternoons. When chilly days set in, it feels like winter has arrived and then back to late Summer with a blast of warm weather again – it’s so moody and unpredictable! (well, we are talking about Paris after all)
It’s the kind of weather when I crave layers and those essential pieces that will take me from warm to cold and from day to night. I also find in this weather, I gravitate towards the classics and go right back to basics: a crisp white shirt, a black poloneck, a cosy cashmere jumper or a great inter season coat, work so well.
