How to dress like a Parisian

While Parisians tend to wear understated clothing, it's really about the fabric and fit. Accessories tend to be a little flashier...a pop of color, some fringe, Hermes and Chanel bags are of course staples, and we cannot forget, the scarf! (you'll learn to tie it a dozen different ways). To top things off, fun costume jewelry, a fedora or wide brimmed hat, an umbrella and a smile!

What do you think about Parisian style? Do you try to incorporate elements of their style in your everyday look?

I'm not there

I’m Not There’ by Pol Úbeda Hervàs is a series of images that displays Hervàs looking at his own shadow. Though the man has been removed from the pictures and all that is left is a pair of sneakers and a dark shape. Hervàs was inspired to shoot this series as he said: ‘I don’t recognize myself any more.’ He leaves the sneakers in the images to remind the viewer that there is still a man somewhere behind the shadow.
