I could wax lyrical about the indefinable essence of ‘Parisian cool’ (it sits somewhere on the spectrum between ‘chic’ and a certain ‘je nais se quoi‘). It’s an element designer Yeojin Bae and her personal style icons for the ‘Cafe Paris’ season – Charlotte Rampling, Jane Birkin and Lou Doillon – possess. But in reality this is just an excuse to ogle some darling pieces destined for Champagne soirées, fancy picnics and garden weddings this Summer. YB J’aime‘s upcoming collection floats in a haze of peaches and Broderie Anglais cream with the addition of dainty romantic prints, delicate butterfly sleeves and just a touch of Eurotrash, via leopard print and scarf patterns, to lend an edge to all the Pretty.
‘Cafe Paris’ Spring Summer 16 begins to drop online today and in-store Monday.
