Format: Taschenbuch
In "Parisian Chic" werden vorerst mehrere Kleidungsstücke vorgestellt (weiße Hose, Blazer, Jeans, Trenchcoat, Lederjacke...) die laut Ines de la Fressange für den "Pariser Stil" stehen sollen. Diese werden beschrieben und kurze Kombinationsvorschläge sowie No-GoŽs genannt.
Ergänzt wird dies durch einen Schuh- und Taschenteil sowie kurze "was ziehe ich an" Beispiele.

Es folgt ein kurzer Abstecher von de la Fressange bzgl. "Pariser" Beauty, welcher meiner Meinung nach recht allgemein gehalten wird. Schön sind die Produktempfehlungen, eher überflüssig Tipps wie "viel Wasser und Schlaf".
Ein Abstecher in Wohnungsinterieur(sehr kurz und allgemein gehalten) und "Altern" ist ebenfalls dabei.
Gut die Hälfte des Buches besteht aus Shopping- Adressen online sowie in Paris vor Ort. Dies fällt sehr ausführlich aus und ist liebevoll gestaltet und illustriert.

Zwei Sterne vergebe ich für den Modeteil, die vorgeschlagenen Einzelstücke sind allesamt Klassiker und gut erklärt, inclusive den "best of" Stücken (zB. zum Thema Trenchcoat der Klassiker von Burberry).
Für allgemein Mode-Interessierte ist das ganze keine neue Welt (daher nur zwei Sterne), aber grundsätzlich schön gemacht, ansprechender Schreibstil und vor allem - dafür gibt es den dritten Stern - die detailreiche und wirklich hübsche Aufmachung des Buches. Die Illustration und Fotos sind meiner Meinung nach sehr ansprechend und im allgemeinen inspirierend.
Ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass modische und stilistische Anfängerinnen durchaus erhellendes hier finden werden. Für Damen, die sich sowieso intensiv mit Fashion beschäftigen, ist nicht viel neues dabei.

Das ehemalige Chanel-Supermodel Inès de la Fressange hat einen Ratgeber zum Pariser Chic verfasst, garniert mit Fotos ihrer modelnden älteren Tochter.
Sehr schöne Ausstattung, anschauliche Fotos, gute Einkaufsideen etc. für Paris - aber leider gibt es zu keinem Paris-Tipp wenigstens eine Métro-Station genannt, keine Öffnungszeiten... Sehr unpraktisch. Ebenfalls unpraktisch ist das Gewicht des Buches - mitnehmen nach Paris kann man es eher nicht. Und bei einem der Tipps mussten wir vor Ort enttäuscht feststellen, dass die Adresse gar nicht mehr existiert.
Aber ansonsten habe ich sehr davon profitiert: Inès hat sehr anschaulich den einfachen, nie "aufgerüschten" Stil der Pariserinnen porträtiert: weniger ist bei ihnen immer mehr! Und ich habe einige sehr wertvolle Tipps gelesen, wie man sich als Frau in den besten Jahren zurechtmachen sollte - manche dieser Ratschläge scheinen ganz im Gegensatz zu stehen von denjenigen, die ein professioneller Visagist geben würde; aber sie überzeugen durch ihre Einfachheit und sind für mich deshalb glaubwürdig.
Ein rundum schönes Werk, um zu Hause darin gemütlich zu schmökern!

Format: Taschenbuch
Da ich selbst Paris sehr gut kenne, würde ich dem Buch nur 3 Sterne geben. Die Illustrationen und Photos sind hochwertig und auch das Buch selbst ist ein schöner Blickfang auf dem Coffee Table.
Jedoch sind die meisten Tipps für Paris-Kenner nichts Neues. Für Interessierte, die Paris noch nicht so gut kennen, ist das Buch eine gute Informationsquelle.

Fazit: ob Kenner oder Paris-Neuling -das Buch kann man sich auf jeden Fall zulegen. Als Nachschlagewerk oder nur als Dekoobjekt.

Ein charmantes, mit schönen Zeichnungen versehenes Buch.
Manche Tipps sollte man allerdings nicht allzu ernst nehmen.
Ich glaube auch nicht, dass Ines de la Fressange alle ihre
Tipps selbst anwendet... (Haare mit Essigwasser spülen, ja gut,
aber den Geruch kriegt man so schnell nicht wieder raus!)
Und mit einer weissen Jeans ist frau immer top angezogen, auch
in Paris (wer's glaubt, wird selig!)

Deceptively described - more shopping and travel guide than fashion book. 15. April 2011
Von Eibhinn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I bought this based on the reviews, product description, and product video here on Amazon, and was very surprised when I actually received the product. Everything suggests that this is a guide to dressing like a Parisian. For the most part, it is not. Here's why

1. My most important point is that most of this book is not a guide to fashion or style, it's a guide to shopping and travelling in Paris. I did a breakdown, of the 239 pages in the book (many of which are blank, or contain very little text and big cute drawings) 77 pages is comprised of shopping guides (for clothing, housewares, children's goods, almost exclusively shops in Paris, although many have websites), and 55 pages is an idiosyncratic travel guide, listing hotels, restaurants, and some museums and other tourist stops. There is a 16 page guide to home decor and entertaining, 14 pages of beauty tips, leaving only 62 pages discussing fashion and clothing.

2. The fact that only 25% of the pages address the apparent topic of the book wouldn't bother me if those 62 pages provided some really keen observations and solid advice, but the whole thing is very glib and basic. Almost all of the information can be found in nearly any modern style guide. I was hoping for some advice on composition - putting clothes together and accessorizing well - which seems to be the real skill of French dressers. The closest I got was the "mix high and low" chestnut, and advice to dress simply and not be too matchy matchy. So essentially a basic description of what French style is, not how to achieve it. Most of the other advice was of the truly revelatory "you must own a trench and an LBD" variety. Um... thanks.

3. Like many guides to dressing, eating, whatever like the French do, the text is annoyingly reductive. "All Parisians" do this, "all Parisian women" do that... as the author conflates her own experience with every other French woman's. The author is a former supermodel, and at one point claims that all Parisian women are either a size 2 or 4 (they are not). I offer this point as a caution for two reasons. First, this book offers absolutely no advice particular to the challenges women above size 4 might have in dressing well, and many of the suggestions (like shop in the menswear or children's department) are likely inadvisable to the bulk of women. Second, please understand that there is more variety to stylish French dressing than is presented here. The "voice" of the book is pure Ines - which is interesting in its own regard, but more idiosyncratic than she lets on. The only other woman's style or experience discussed is of her mini-me daughter.

4. Many reviewers describe the book as being "like a Moleskin journal." That may be true of the French/European version, but I would describe the North American publication as "sort of looking like a Moleskin journal." It is a fair bit larger, and much thicker, and has a soft, flimsy cover, and matte, slightly rough paperstock inside. The paper has a nice feel, but gives the colour photographs inside a slightly dark look. That's okay, though, since the vast majority of the pictures are silly illustrations and pictures of the inside of boutiques, spas and hotels and are not intended to be instructive in any way.

Overall, Ines de la Fressange seems like a fun enough lady, and the tone of the book is conversational and easy to read. Unfortunately as a fashion guide the book leaves much to be desired. The major advice seems to be, "to dress like a Parisian, buy all your clothes from shops in Paris." Which I probably could have figured out on my own.

Ultimately, the greatest value of this book is as a guide for fashionable people travelling to Paris to go shopping. Even as a travel guide it has its limitations as it lacks any of the basic information one usually requires, like maps or guides to basic transportation. Unfortunately, like any travel guide - especially one discussing fashionable boutiques and with a section sharing the hottest and trendiest current restaurants - I think the practical lifespan on the book is very limited. Guides like Lonely Planet are updated every year for a reason. Since I'm not currently planning to return to Paris within the next couple of years, I fear this book will be of little use to me even as an eventual tourist.

Much ado about nothing 13. April 2011
Von J. Bucar - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I anxiously awaited this book. I knew of Ines and and as an ardent Francophile (Francomaniac by my friends), I couldn't wait for this book to appear. What a disappointment. She gives no meaningful advice or insights into her chicness, beauty or style. The photos are all of her daughter.Is it meant to be for a 20 year old? Ines missed a good opportunity to really define the Parisienne and her je ne sais quoi. Instead, the book is filled with generalities. It repeats itself far too much. How many times do we read that it's so chic to push your sleeves up 3/4 or to tie one's belt rather than buckle it (yeah, right; like that looks "chic" on anyone other than a 13 year old Twiggy). I was so disappointed that she did not write a book that shows the progression of French chic from young women to the woman of a "certain age." She's in her 50s. How great it would have been had she shown how she was able to become the style maven and keep that allure well into her 50s. The "advice" on clothing is meaingless. It's not really advice either. The section on beauty is okay but again, the most substantive advice she gave in this section is don't use soap. No big surprise there. Why not say what her beauty routine is or discuss the "principles" of sound skin care, no matter what the age ? It was such a disappointment to say the least. I checked out the on line links she gave for shopping (my trips to Paris, while frequent, do not include for the most part shopping at those addresses). The on line sites where valid (and many were not) would mean shelling out $478 for a skirt. Not too many of us are planning on that kind of budget. The book (physical book) itself is aesthetically attractive. The sketches, even the neat little ribbon book mark, make the book itself a delight to hold in your hand. But this is surely an example of not judging a book by its cover. The interior is banale, superficial and basically "nul" as we say. A sore disappointment.

like a visit with a chic Parisian who actually cares about you 6. April 2011
Von Jesse Kornbluth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The book is dedicated "to my new best friend" and then there's a dotted line for you to fill in.

Cringe-worthy?

Yes, if the author of a book intended to get you up to speed on Parisian style was just any old supermodel.

But Inès Marie Lætitia Églantine Isabelle de Seignard de La Fressange --- let's call her Inès --- is not like the others. Despite her impeccable breeding (she's a distant heiress to the Lazard banking billions) and her privileged upbringing, she's astonishingly down-to-earth, smart and friendly, with a goofy good cheer that suggests a refusal to take herself very seriously. Proof: at 53, she walked the runway for Lagerfeld, never having had plastic surgery or even Botox.

Interesting story there. In the `80s, Inès was the first model to have an exclusive contract --- with Lagerfeld. A few years later, she was asked to be the image of Marianne, the native beauty who is the symbol of the French Republic. Lagerfeld ended their relationship, saying, "I do not dress up historic monuments." Inès went on to start her own company and consult for Roger Vivier. But it wasn't until she was named the chicest woman in France by the readers of Le Figaro and became the French face of L'Oreal that Lagerfeld had to have her back.

"Parisian Chic: A Style Guide" is like a visit with a friendly, clear-eyed woman you trust immediately. It's the best kind of guide book --- you not only get information, you get it in context. That is, you learn quite a lot about the author and how she came to her opinions:"In the magazines we see the latest fashion, on gorgeous girls, but in my book I just wanted to help the busy woman --- a woman who is not thin, and not that fat, but in a hurry, in a hurry, in a hurry! Because we are all a lot like this --- too much tummy, not enough time."

At 230 pages, published in nicely bound soft cover, with whimsical illustrations and terrific photographs, her book is the best guide to personal style --- and to Paris --- I've ever seen. If I were a woman and had any relationship to Paris, I'd memorize it.

Shall we take the tour?

Part I is "How to Dress Like a Parisian." She serves up one absolute after another. No complete outfits. Don't look "rich." Wear two scarves. Make sure you own the following: a man's blazer, a trench coat, a navy sweater, a tank top, a little black dress, jeans and a leather jacket. And Converse sneakers. And flats:"Some people think that shoes are ladders. No man is going to say, 'I would love you so much more if you were 10cm taller.' Women are suffering, you know. Elegance is about feeling nice, how can you feel nice when you have shoes that are like a prosthesis?"

What to buy, what to wear, when to wear it: this is the first third of the book. (The most important thing goes unsaid --- you don't follow fashion slavishly. You're better than that. You have the confidence to believe you're attractive to men, and dress to please yourself. But you know all that, right?) Then it's on to shopping. ("I love buying new things because I like to be a stranger to them.") Inès offers an excellent guide to not-obvious Paris shops --- and their online stores. She shares her beauty regime. ("Wear makeup every day, even on weekends. Your family wants to see you at your best, too!")

And then Inès pulls the curtain wide open and devotes half the book to her own life: "Chez Moi." Keep it simple. Display art by children. And then another section on shopping, this time for the home. A short list of museums, bookstores --- and a public restroom you'd never find on your own. Manicurists. Just a dozen restaurants. Gourmet-to-go shops. Six hotels.

Overall, "Parisian Chic" is like those memos you get from well-traveled friends. Everything you need to know. And not one thing extra.

I'll be pushing this book on Paris-bound friends --- and women in danger of dressing too young, or too trendy, or just too too --- for years.

Not about Parisian style at all! 19. Mai 2011
Von Sarah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Despite having read the review by Eibhinn (Canada), I made the mistake of buying this book. It is styled to look like a scrapbook of notes and photographs clipped from newspapers. Fine, except that the photographs are not just dark, they truly look like tiny photographs clipped from non-glossy magazines or newspapers and left for a decade or two. The quality is completely unacceptable. For a book about style, I'd expect the photographs to be larger, clear and well-lit, but they are not.

The style advice is either obvious or silly, and the author contradicts herself so many times I was surprised no one caught this in the editing process.

But perhaps the most important point to note, if you are thinking of buying this book, is that it is not actually a book about Parisian style (or even a quarter of a book about Parisian style) at all! It is a book of current fashion ideas (such as: mix high and low, designer lamp with thrift store furniture, etc). What I mean is that if you are looking for a book about how to achieve the chic elegance that we in the English-speaking world think of as Parisian (or perhaps French) style, this is not the book for you. It doesn't give any information about that at all. It really doesn't! I thought there might be a few pages about that, but no. If you are looking for a book that lists a few ideas current in the fashion world more generally, well, then there are better books out there that do that, or just start looking at fashion blogs. They give vastly more information, have stunning photographs in many cases, and cost nothing.

A Style Resource (Reviewed by The Simply Luxurious Life blog) 6. April 2011
Von Simply Luxurious - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Parisian style radiates an air of self-assuredness, that indefinable je ne sais quoi that initially seems so elusive, and yet at the same time almost appears simple, uncontrived, perhaps effortless.
Inès de la Fressange, the premiere model for Chanel in the 80s and currently the brand ambassador for Roger Vivier, has graciously decided to share these coveted Parisian secrets of style in her new book Parisian Style: A Style Guide which is officially available Tuesday, April 5th.

I must confess, I was eagerly awaiting the opportunity to take in her tips, ideas and expertise for more than just a few months, and upon the delivery of my copy, it barely left my side until I was finished.

First of all, while the cover alone is captivating and impossible to miss with it's scarlet red jacket and gilded font, the contents are just as creatively and vivaciously presented. With the feel of a large Moleskine journal, ribbon bookmark and all, additionally all of the photography of shops, products and destinations are by Inès, as are the drawings and hand-written lists. The the layout as well is playful, easy to read and unpretentious unlike what one might expect due to the topic at hand.

Inès has clearly taken special care to create guide for all of us who are short on time and thus sometimes imagination, being sure to help us create a style that appears effortless, yet is full of great thought.

The Magnificent Seven are what is defined as the brilliant basics that are key to creating Parisian style in any scenario. Modeled by Inès' daughter Nine, each of these items are demonstrated as part of a complete outfit in order to better exhibit how to incorporate exactly what she is suggesting must be in our closet:

The Magnificent Seven:

1. A Man's Blazer

2. The Trench

3. The Navy (cashmere) Sweater

4. The Tank

5. The Little Black Dress

6. The Perfect Jeans

7. The Leather Jacket

While this may be where many style books cease in their guidance, Inès has only just begun. For each of the Magnificent Seven she shares more ideas on how to meld it into anyone's wardrobe, a list of fashion faux pas, a lux celebrity style idea and a hall of fame reference which in the case of the navy sweater was Eric Bompard's cashmere company. She is spilling the beans so to speak, sharing the secrets and letting us all in on where one can acquire the look of Parisian style.

And be sure, after sharing her tips on fashion, she continues on to accessories, the five essential bags, shoes, beauty, entertaining, and home decor.

Having lived in Paris for most of her life (although not born there, further proof that one does not need to be a born and bred Parisian to possess such style), she also takes her readers through her recommended shops, boutiques, hotels, restaurants, spas, and hot spots that would take more than a few travel guides to figure out when attempting to plan their next trip to the City of Light.

It is without reservation that I highly recommend Parisian Chic: A Style Guide as an informative, delightful and forever resourceful book that I am sure to pack for my next trip to Paris and have already begun to tweak my wardrobe accordingly - navy cashmere sweater, white jeans and ballet flats - my new go-to chic outfit. Thank you Inès!
