Intrinsèque

When you live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, style is an avocation.  It’s a talent that’s developed from living in a vibrant city with prominent architecture and splendid gardens.  As you walk through Paris, it’s exciting to see how fashion is used as a medium to engage with the city.  Unexpected combinations and contrasting elements are put together like a street mural that’s imaginative and relevant to city life. 





A ribbed knit accentuates the sleek fit of this zippy little sweater knit with sleeves that end just past the elbow. Style Name: Maje Moseta Half Zip Ribbed Sweater.

Parisians dress well because they live well.  Whether they’re savoring the aroma of a fresh baguette or arranging a bouquet of flowers, feeding the senses is a priority.  Parisians are informed about designers and trends, but not tempted by trendy fashion.  They’re improvisational—American sneakers, Dior sunglasses, and an Italian blazer form an effortless ensemble.  They’re loyal to French labels like Maje, known for collections that encapsulate the enchantment of Paris, and Equipment, the premiere designer of essential shirts.  And when it comes to fragrance, Parisians are uncompromising:  French perfume or nothing.

Maje excels at designing smart silhouettes that complement the jaunty spirit of une jeune femme living on the Left Bank.  An unraveled sleeve adds a rebellious detail to a tweed jacket, and there’s a youthful “do as I please” sway in the hemline of a sassy miniskirt.  Parisians adore Equipment’s silk shirts because they feel good and add a touch of sophistication to any occasion.  The Signature Shirts complement a variety of styles:  au courant and retro, feminine and edgy, classic and unconventional.  More important, luxurious basics are fundamental to expressing your intrinsic style—the portrait you paint with layers of personality, place, and purpose.
