Paris has always been one of the ultimate sources of style inspiration. And now that we’re about to round the corner on a year of at-home obsessed fashion, it’s probably safe to say we’re all looking for a new way to spark our style. What better way to rediscover the thrill of getting dressed than with pieces that channel the City of Lights sans passport? Enter Dior’s 30 Montaigne capsule collection—a chic assembly of iconic staples that the brand’s creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, envisioned as the quintessential Frenchwoman’s wardrobe. Each expertly crafted garment, bag, and shoe is a study in the art of understated elegance, and ahead we share four ways to find that effortless Parisian spirit.
The arrondissements of Paris have always held a particular kind of charm, but leave it to an impossibly stylish bag to bring that je ne sais quois to life. A balance of elegant lines and boxy proportions, the Bobby Bag doesn’t have to try too hard to carry just the right amount of sophistication. This bag has a distinct confidence that’s perfect for channeling the personality of a French film ingenue from just about anywhere.
Every street in Paris feels steeped in beautiful history, but you only need to look to 30 Avenue Montaigne to feel a part of it. The iconic Bar Jacket style was reimagined by Chiuri from the groundbreaking New Look collection, created by Christian Dior in 1947. Skip the French fashion clichés and opt for this quintessential piece that feels just as inspiring layered in your WFH wardrobe as it would strolling along the Seine.
The City of Lights never fails to enchant with its native style sensibilities, but you don’t need to be sitting in the Jardins du Trocadéro to channel the spectacularly soigné Parisian. To capture that same air of dreamy beauty from afar, simply turn to a pleated skirt for an outfit that’s instantly inspired. Twilight picnics under the Eiffel Tower might be out of the cards right now, but luckily these soft pleats feel just as magical for the every day.
The French joie de vivre wouldn’t be complete without a touch of romance. So why not wear a playful ode to love on your sleeve—or rather, your heels? Step into a pair of the J’Adior slingbacks for a look that exudes that iconic feminine appeal. The two-tone embroidered “J’Adior” ribbon detailing can be found on an irresistible array of Dior shoe silhouettes—the difficulty lies in choosing only one.
