It espouses a grown-up style and attitude with a tomboy aesthetic, where culture, history, beauty, intelligence, feminism, quality, and taste are celebrated. Navaz Batliwalla @disneyrollergirl The book explores some gentlewomanly values and aesthetics, and involves fourteen interviews with the “advocates” of the modern Gentlewoman. Despite the fact the women come from completely different places in the world, all of them, embody the independent spirit and thoughtful style of the New Garconne. In the book, we can find not only beautiful photographies and curated imagery, but also the interviews with many inspiring women from a fashion world. One of them is the editor of Elle Magazine, Donna Wallace from London, who explains that she always prefers to get the best version of the pieces of clothing she wants and keep it for longer. Another interesting creative is Sophie Hersan from Paris, who works as a supply quality director of Vestiaire Collective. With her natural appreciation for genuine style, Sophie has helped to shape a more eco-aware and considered way we perceive and consume fashion. Jill Nicholls, a New York based sculptor who became a designer and interior decorator at the age of 34, in her interview talks about the importance of the learning mindset and that there is never too late to make a change in life. The women describe most adaptable, functional and beautiful garments in their garconnes’ wardrobes, what makes the book an amazing inspiration for every fashion lover, who wants to reduce the amount of clothing they have and adapt to more minimalistic approach in a chic manner. The New Garconne is a perfect example of “less is more” when it comes to style and proves that investing money in high quality pieces will always turn out as a long-term success.
