Pre-Fall 2013: Jean Seberg + Rachel Comey

Jean Seberg


Jean Seberg was an American actress who moved to France early in her career and stared in a number of French New-Wave films. Her most notable New-Wave role was the role of Patricia in Jean Luc-Goadard's Breathless.


The boyish gamine could easily don pieces from  Rachel Comey's Pre-fall 2013 collection. Comey is a New York based designer who mixes downtown cool with vintage inspiration.

Overalls


 Shirt:Wood Wood Adrien Striped Top, Overalls:Railroad Shortalls, Shoes:Ballet Flats: Marc Jacobs, Backpack:Bric's X-Travel backpack


My fashion senses were tingling when Phillip Lim showed leather overalls in his 2013 Resort collection. I knew as soon as I saw them that overalls would be the next "thing." . Overalls may not follow in the footsteps of thier utilitarian cousin, the jean, in becoming the next wardrobe staple, but they do offer the same ease and comfort, making them a great no-fuss trend.

La Nuit de La Plein Lune - Rohmer, 1984





Pearls-Manhattan Pearls Park Avenue, Neon Tank-Sam&Lavi Dalia layered with Rag&Bone grey sweater. Bag- Louis Vuitton mini green basket bag, dress:Versace for H&M. Coat:Drome Oversized Coat. Headband-anthro( also an easy DIY.) I first viewed this film last summer in Paris. Every year the Parc de Villete hosts a en plein air cinema for free. The event is ongoing during the summer months, allowing you to catch lots of great films while picnicking on the grass with wine, cheese, and friends. Les Nuits de la Plein Lune(Full Moon in Paris) is a 1984 French New-Wave film directed by Eric Rohmer. The film starts with the proverbs "He who has two women loses his soul," and "He who has two houses loses his mind." Louise, not ready to leave her boyfriend, but wanting to test single waters, starts a flirtation with a man in Paris. She promises herself that if she falls in love with another man, she will leave her live-in boyfriend. Not all goes as planned and Louise finds out just how difficult it is to have her cake and eat it too.
