    aklily, this is anything but simple and casual doesn’t do it justice.

    Check the pants, the shirt layering, the scarf, the…

    I mean, if she didn’t study this then she’s got some natural gift of glamour.

    She blogged about her scarf on Oct 15: “Ou un foulard 2007 doublĂ© d’un petit châle 2002 fait qu’on l’arrĂŞte dans la rue.”

    Stopped in the road, for real! But I don’t know if it was simply the scarf/shawl remix.

    Or was it, Sart?

    Wish I knew who made the pants with the pleats down the center … The fringy scarf is feminine and that smile is outstanding.

    I’m sorry to dispute fellow commenters above, but I don’t find anything at all simple or effortless about the lady’s extraordinary sense of style. The combination of elements, colour, pattern, shapes, tailoring, draping, and proportion displayed here is extremely sophisticated and obviously very well accomplished. The unusual cut of the drop-pleated trousers alone would take a paragraph to adequately assess. And the two different scarves (one mesh, one an ikat print – look again) worn interlayered over sailor stripes is nothing short of brilliant.

    The bag is perfect – big enough to look like ‘now’, but not so monstrous that it will soon look like ‘yesterday.’ Wouldn’t we all like to see her shoes?

    If, as the post title indicates, the lady is indeed an illustratrix, I would not be surprised to find that her artwork displays the same uncommon subtlety and attention to detail seen here in her dress sense.

    Ok…I’m neither psychic nor french but I swear I’ve seen this exact photo before.
    The reason:

    I adore everything about this look and when school was out in Texas last Monday I described this look to my sister – for whom it is perfect.

    Was it on the site for a while?

    Oh wow! She is absolutely beautiful. I love the way she added the scarf (Hermes?) to an otherwise very masculine outfit. Gorgeous!!

    That scarf has the most delicious dabs of colour, set-off by the subtlety of the rest of the canvas! More of us should be dressing like that – making our bodies works of art.

    I am tied of seeing people write: “This is how I want to look when I am older” or “This is how I want to look in 10 years”. It’s rather a back-handed compliment. (You look good for an aging person!) So just say they look great and shut up about the rest.

    garance needs to tell us where she found that striped top! and is that a strip of cotton wrapped around her waist, or a layered shirt?
    garance, you are just lovely.

    She has a lovely open face, great photos and great style. She actually even resembles you. You are right, she is to be admired for being able to take pictures in those high heels!
    I hope that one day you will come to the LIF (Lima Fashion Week) Week in Peru! gaining fame and great designers each year!
