Style Icon Reveals How to Create Parisian Chic at Home

Ines de la Fressange is no stranger to style. She was the first model to sign an exclusive modelling contract with couture house Chanel, and became Karl Lagerfeld's muse due to her incredible likeness to Coco Chanel.

Today, de la Fressange balances her life as a fashion designer, busy mother, businesswoman and author with her bestseller, Parisian Chic, captivating readers with windows into her world of French fashion and interiors.

In her latest book, Maison: Parisian Chic at Home, de la Fressange has combined her flair for design with the talents of her close friend Marin Montagut, who is a watercolour artist and the illustrator behind the popular Bonjour City Guide-Maps.  

Wrapped in a paper sleeve, which can be removed and unfolded to become a beautiful kaleidoscopic poster, Maison: Parisian Chic at Home steps into the colourful interiors of fifteen creative Parisians, including the authors', who divulge their design secrets, provide vibrant watercolour illustrations and eclectic mood boards.
