We talk a lot about French-girl style (exhibits A, B, C, D…)—so much so that you might imagine an entire office full of Who What Wear editors clad in Breton-stripe tees, wool berets, silk scarves, black cigarette jeans, and chic gold jewelry. But, if so, it's time to wipe those sartorial stereotypes right out of your brain, as much as we love all of the aforementioned items. That's where this roundup of fresh fall fashion picks from some of our favorite French brands comes in. From Gallic mainstays like Chloé and Saint Laurent to up-and-coming brands like Elleme and Maison Chateau Rouge, we've rounded up the best of the best from our go-to Parisian designers, and there's not an expected pick in the bunch.
