Yé-Yé Girl

20.9.10

I had 1960s French singer Françoise Hardy on repeat all weekend while I tried to brush up on my French. She was part of the yé-yé movement led by young females who sang about love and longing. She most certainly has a beautiful voice and a remarkable face, but I am more than anything, captivated by her seemingly effortless and timeless style: scalloped skirts, flared trousers, maxi dresses, trench coats, headpieces, and socks with shoes. I believe people are tripping all over themselves for these pieces today. 

Fun fact: her song tous les garçons et les filles was the inspiration behind the name of the fashion house Comme des Garçons. Now, how's that for iconic?

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

 Bisous,
Abs

LOVE her. Love love love love. Can't say it enough. She's so beautiful it hurts to look at her. I just wish I could get "Mon Amie La Rose" on iTunes, but they're a bunch of lamers.
