Claudie Pierlot

• 18 October 2012


Paris.  My happy place.  And perhaps yours too.  Good food, great chocolate, renown art, beautiful side streets and lots of people watching.  Loud people, quiet people, cranky people, passionate people and stylish people.  It's all so interesting!  So the next time you're in Paris (which is hopefully sooner than later), I encourage you to take a moment to find a park bench; and then sit there for awhile and simply watch.  I think you'll see what I mean...


I recently had the chance to spend a day there after the workshop with Aran, which I was so very grateful for.  For some reason I noticed a designer this time, one I hadn't spotted before, Claudie Pierlot.  I even think I like it more than longtime favorite, Comptoir des Cotonniers.  The line is very chic (just the way you'd expect a French label to be), yet casual.  Such a perfect combination!  Think: lots of knits with a little lace, leather, sequins and...peter pan collars :)  


This gal describes it clothing you'd expect 'a grown-up version of Amelie to wear' and I think she's spot on! Since it's always fun to peek at sites like this to procure style ideas and such, I just had to share. Sometimes all it takes is a petite look-see on a great site to fall in love with your own closet all over again.  It's an exercise in creativity and discipline to rework what you have to make it feel more current; and definitely worthwhile in the end!

Bonjour Stephanie. Thank you for stopping by chez French Girl yesterday. So glad I found your blog. I am your newest Follower! :-) I like both Claudie and Le Comptoir. In fact, I recently ordered a limited-edition coat from Le Comptoir (I blogged about it two or three weeks ago in my fashion post.) It came in this week and is just lovely! Looking forward to visiting you here on a regular basis. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Veronique, I stopped by Le Comptoir about 3.5 weeks ago...I wonder if I saw it?! They had some amazing coats in the store. It was fun to window shop :)

Talk soon!
