Have you heard of Garance Doré yet? In a nutshell, she's an ultra-successful style blogger — she and her former partner (Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist) were often playfully referred to as the "Brangelina of street style photography," and together, they picked up the prestigious Eugenia Sheppard Media Award from the CFDA back in 2012. She's also known for her whirlwind accounts of fashion month, she has a pretty kick-ass POV on diet culture, and she happens to have scores and scores of successful collaborations under her belt (past partnerships include everyone from L'Oreal to Kate Spade). Well, now it looks like Ms. Doré shaking things up with a brand new capsule collection — this time with easy, breezy French brand Equipment. Yup, Garance Doré and Equipment are a match made in heaven.
You've probably seen their flowy printed silk shirts adorning the racks at your local Nordstrom (or, if you happen to be particularly fortunate, at your local TJ Maxx). As with their newest collaborator, Equipment is known for their effortlessly cool vibe — so I don't think I have to tell you that it's an absolute match made in heaven. Of the collection's chic overtones, Garance said to Vogue UK, "The idea of this particular print is a cocktail party, mixing the style of France and New York — my two homes. So it's a kind of blending of the two, and that's what you see on the shirt, the dress, the bag."
The line, which includes apparel, stationary, and various accessories, encompasses the best of both worlds, mixing Doré's original illustrations and designs (this is the first time she's been asked to illustrate for a collection) with everything from silk scarves to acetate iPhone cases. Let's take a look at some of the must-have pieces from the collection.
