If you have not checked airfare to Paris recently, then even a passing glance at this excellent story in the September 2014 issue of Vogue Paris featuring Grace Hartzel photographed by Lachlan Bailey could have you clamoring for your passport and carry-on. Titled “Paris en Douce,” this Géraldine Saglio-styled story champions mini-skirts, jeans, cashmere sweaters, and pea coats, the archetypal ensemble that would look contemporary in nearly any decade of postwar Paris. Wearing a wool and angora sweater by Philipp Plein (pictured) it is not difficult to see how Grace resembles Jane Birkin. The effortless cool as ever is second nature for Grace whether on the printed page or the larger-than-life billboard. Paris can perhaps wait, but Grace demands attention.
