How "do" those French women manage to look sophisticated, casual, and unique? It may be in the water, it may be in the gene pool . . . or they may have a copy of" Paris Chic & Trendy," a savvy guide that describes fifty-four of the best boutiques, designers' studios, and vintage stores in the French capital. Some are small studio-shops run by up-and-coming designers, featuring only their own work (and maybe that of a few creative friends). Other stores showcase a sophisticated edit of pieces from seasoned designers who supply French fashionistas with must-have items every season (think Jasmin Puech handbags, Agnes B. striped T-shirts, Repetto ballet flats). The pages of this pocket-size guide are overflowing with colorful photos of each shop and their merchandise: jewelry, lingerie, shoes, handbags, separates, dresses, sweater sets, stilettos and boots, trench coats, and LBDs: It's all in "Paris Chic & Trendy," the go-to guide to find the most stylish shops in the most stylish city.
