When I think Parisian chic, there is one woman that comes to mind: Carine Roitfeld, who's possibly the epitome of everything I've ever wanted to be. It comes as no surprise that when the Carine Roitfeld x Uniqlo collaboration dropped, I wanted everything. And I mean everything, from the tailored blazers, to the sleek skirts (leather included), to the graphic print tee with Roitfeld's face on it. Ev-ery-thing.
Just this past April, I ran around my apartment in glee when I heard that Carine Roitfeld and Uniqlo were collaborating — two of my worlds were colliding into one, and it would be available for me to wear. Let that sink in. If you're not familiar with Roitfeld, she was the former Vogue Paris editor in chief, and is the current editor in chief of CR Magazine, which as featured Beyonce, Kate Upton, Kim Kardashian, the Hadid sisters, and more in its pages. Just this July, we learned that CR would be introducing their first men's book, too! For serious fashion die-hards, this was music to our ears.
Roitfeld knows her sh*t. She is the queen of effortless beauty and grace, perfectly capturing that rolled-out-of-bed badass look, always seen with her iconic black eyeliner, middle part, and bold brows. Plus, her sheer shirts, affinity for leather pieces, and body-hugging dresses don't hurt, either. Essentially, she's the ultimate femme fatale.
Check out some of my favorite pieces from her collection — which, by the way, is filled with work-wear staples that you'll be wanting in your wardrobe ASAP.
