The Menswear Label French Girls Love

Elyssa Goodman

It's no secret that we adore French style, and when it can be borrowed from the boys it's even more exciting.

Enter Melindagloss, the French brand designed by friends Rémi de Laquintane and Mathieu de Ménonville. Rémi and Mathieu started the brand in 2009 while studying philosophy. According to Vogue, they wanted to make clothing that evoked Parisian life as well as their favorite aspects of culture. As Rémi has said, "We wished to rejuvenate masculine fashion, adding a touch of devil-may-care nonchalance to a classic figure while affirming graphic choices and narratives, inspired by our environment, Parisian life, literature, cinema, and travels." 

Lucky for us, that nonchalance and classic figure translates into pieces that can also be beautifully styled for women: their slim cut trousers, boxy jackets, and crisp, patterned shirts all evoke a boyfriend who loves Fellini movies, reads Allen Ginsberg poetry, and aspires to a love like that between Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin. Who wouldn't want to borrow a look like that?
