LUCILE, STYLE ICON

Lucile is by far one of the most stylish and prettiest girls I have met recently. There’s a rightness in everything she wears, every note is poetic and fun, retaining the flush of youth and clearly reflecting a passion for textiles, prints and romantic styles. There’s never a breath of discord despite the fusion of colours, shapes, references to costume design and eras. She creates beautiful imagery with magical clothes complemented by luxurious shapes and textures. The overall effect is striking and constant. With her beautifully rhythmic clothes adorned with details and ornaments that are a hymn to vintage shopping, she is a real showstopper. She seems to have a genuine relish and an obvious talent for putting things together in a catchy and irresistible way. She strategically but subtly reshapes her vintage finds to transform them into modern ideas she happily experiments with. Very few girls have the ability to indulge in play-acting with their clothes like Lucile does. Her sheer quizzical humour is evident in the way she puts a look together and the fantasy she projects is fascinating. Her delicate and beautiful doll-like features combined with her mesmerising attitude to fashion results in a character capable of holding your attention, you immediately sense that you are connecting with a live current of inspiration. I had to talk about her on this blog. If someone asked me to name my top 5 style icons I would immediately and without hesitation list Lucille as one of them. Her little fashion studies are always highly imaginative, elegant and intuitive. A pleasing and original mixture of the quintessentially French and love of British eccentricity.
