Icon | Françoise Hardy

Being deemed an icon is akin to being knighted in fashion terms. Perhaps a dramatic comparison, save for women like Françoise Hardy who represent a cultural revolution. Known for her oblivious fringed hair with a slightly sullen expression and wearing her clothes with an air of unintentional cool. Highly regarded as one of the most talented songbirds in history, her beautiful ballads still echo endlessly in every ear. She may be in the rare category of a favorite to dignitaries and artists alike. We look to her for notes on effortless glamour or perhaps just how to bring it back into the light. Françoise is the epitome of the phrase je ne sais quoi. Meaning, a little bit of the unknown, a little bit of ourselves kept close and an unabashed mood.
