When it comes to French-girl style, there is perhaps no one who embodies it as perfectly as Jeanne Damas. With her chestnut hair and piecey bangs, she’s almost a double of Jane Birkin (the fashion icon is English by birth but embodies French style in every other way). And her style—easy, classic, and effortless—pretty much combines everything we love about how Parisians approach fashion. On top of that, she’s also the founder of Rouje—a fashion label filled with pieces you can find in every French girl’s closet.
With our fascination of Damas, we were curious to find out the pieces she’ll be wearing next season. Instead of waiting to see, we chatted with the Parisian It girl to find out. She told Who What Wear that once fall hits, she will be wearing “boots, dark green, brown, faux furs”—all staples among French girls who tend to stick to natural tones and versatile pieces but never sacrifice style in cool weather. But there’s also one piece she wears year-round: a basket bag. She admits, “I like summer accessories for fall/winter.” It’s no surprise, either; ever since Jane Birkin made wicker baskets her signature carrier, it’s been a French-girl essential.
