INTRODUCING – The SartoriaList Women’s

I am happy to begin The SartoriaList Women’s
Same concept as the Men’s SartoriaList plus two additional services.
As with the men’s list I will try to get a good mix of ladies from varied income levels.
I am currently efforting responses from women in New York, Milan, Paris, London and Stockholm (Berlin?).
I will be updating the SartoriaList as I receive answers but quite a few will be going up in the next two weeks.

Of course, I had to start with a few of the coolest women I know.


Hair salon
Romain Color – 37 rue Rousselet paris 7eme

Styl’up – 5 rue pasquier paris 8eme

Dry cleaner:
Delaporte Teinturerie – 62 rue Francois I paris 8eme

Shoe repair
Pulin bottier – 5 rue chauveau Lagarde paris 8eme

Nail Salon
Sothys institut de beaute – 128 rue du faubourg saint honore paris 8eme

Body Treatment
L appartement 217 – 217 rue saint honore paris 1er


Hair Salon:
Leonor Greyl – 15 rue Tronchet paris 8eme

Styl’up – 5 rue pasquier paris 8eme

Dry cleaner:
Delaporte Teinturerie – 62 rue Francois I paris 8eme

Shoe repair
Cordonnerie Vaneau – 44 rue vaneau paris 7eme

Nail salon and body treatment
Institut Revlon – 19 rue Bassano paris 16eme


Hair Salon:
ALAIN COIFFURE 184 rue de grenelle 7emer
cute little place, where the clientele are like your grandparents, and walking in the door is like stepping back into the 1950′s. the ladies have regular appointments to get themselves coiffured and to catch up on the quartier gossip. i go there not really for the haircut (as my hair is never in more need than a trim), but so soak up a little of the old life…

Tailor or Alterations:
Being a designer i do it myself.

Dry Cleaner:
PRESSING MALAR 27 rue malar 7eme

Shoe Repair:
CHAUSSURE ROLAND 12 rue malar 7eme
Gorgeous little old man, owns and runs the place all by himself, and every morning i pass him on the street on the way back from the boulangerie, smile and say “bonjour”.

Nail Salon:

    Aha! I was hoping Carine would be the one to kick off the SartoriaList for women – what a coup! Now, if only acquiring her style was as easy as frequenting the places she recommends…
    Thanks Sart!

    please do berlin! i personally think it’s one of the most assuredly quirky and stylish places without the self-consciousness of being, well, just that — “quirky” and “stylish.”

    Great, great nominees. I’d absolutely love to read a sentence or two about their sartorial philosophy, but I understand that’s a bit of a detour from the intent of the “List”…

    oh us poor women in Los Angeles are doomed to jeans and flip flops for ever. We need Satorialist help for certain.

      I am in total agreement. Moved to LA for the summer and it seems to be the case. Help!

    It is always great to see you feature Carine Roitfeld! I can’t get enough. Not many have her sense of style –fresh, confident and consistent.

    How much do we love the unibrow on the fella (her son?) next to Carine? Talk about beauty and the beast.

    That image of Emmanuelle Alt is always on my mind, so I’m not really that surprised that she made it into the SartoriaList WOMEN..

    I have to say, that shot of Tara is by far my all time favorite Sartorialist portrait :)

    Tara Henthorn alters her own clothes. So do I! Sewing can be very relaxing. My mother taught me, it’s a good way to get great fit and also get to know what looks good on you. Alas, I’m not passing down my skills, my daughter expects me to do it for her.

    More Tara- she looks so chic and just amazing! Who is she?

    This is great! I’m wondering if you’d ever consider including favorite products? I would love to take advantage of these incredibly stylish women’s advice, but I doubt I will find myself in any of these cities any time soon. (unfortunately . . . )

    TARA HENTHORN – Good lord! Proof positive that reincarnation is true: Jean Seberg is back! I don’t see the point of copying a vintage look so slavishly, though it’s so generic (though yes, she looks great) can it be called copying?

    Since you’re compiling the fashionista’s top recommendations, I have a burning question which I was wondering if you could help me with….I’ve got several pairs of Christian Louboutins which I absolutely love and wear constantly. What do your fashionista friends do with their cherished Louboutins when they need resoling? I’m at a complete loss at what to do since I don’t want to do anything which would ruin the trademark red sole. Any ideas? I’m sure lots of others would love to know their secret. There’d probably be quite a lot of $ to be made from just making red color soles for precisely this problem…..(heck I might even have come up with the next best thing to reinventing the wheel!?)

    They will do your nails in the Sothys salon in Paris but this is just an additional service. You primarily go there because of the wonderful treatments they offer. Besides they run one of their fab salons in NYC too.

    tara has the look that britney spears should be rocking – short and pixie like – instead of wigs and various mistakes.
