Garance has known Valerie for years, but the rest of the team only just got to know her during our trip to Paris.
She happens to radiate a calmness, even in the chaos of fashion week — and Valerie has that lovely French way of always taking the time to have a real conversation…
(What often feels like a lost art in New York, where life is go, go, go, go…)(Remember when you could talk to someone sans phone buzzing?!)
And that kind of composure and measure really shows in how Valerie puts together her looks. I always love to see how one’s way of dressing can reflect their personality and character, and Valerie’s casual elegance is on point. The easy, classic khaki pants (another great transition piece!) and white button down are played up so nicely by a traditional plaid… Then the too-cute Miu Miu glitter pumps indicate a little bit of fun and play.
So that’s knowing Valerie!
Do you feel like your style truthfully represents your personality?
Sometimes I feel like mine can be a little all over the place, so not sure what that means… ;)
Valerie wears: coat and shoes, Miu Miu.
