charlotte gainsbourg

Charlotte Gainsbourg's latest album IRM takes Beck's Californian flare and Gainsbourg's chic Gallic nonchalance and fuses them together into a perfect summer soundtrack, one that tells stories of traipsing through Mexican dust and dreamy falling elevators. And what will you wear as you listen to such a record? Charlotte's trademark suede western ankle boots naturellement, to be worn resting on a sunny windowsill as the rays warm your Big Love style blouse, I'd say. Nicely done.

APC suede ankle boots from totokaelo, monday jeans vintage wash from weekday, yellow fringing blouse from topshop, Rousseau: A Very Short Introduction from amazon, road suede jacket in beige from weekday, broderie anglais camisole in rust from topshop, marit shirt in pastel from monki



And see also, this editorial from Self Service 27 which is perhaps more current weather appropriate. Styled by Suzanne Koller and photographed by Venetia Scott, it's a kick up the arse to play dress up in Fair Isle knits and Patti Smith style shirts, possibly in a Cotswolds cottage or your very own drizzly back yard.
