Garance Dore has just added print designer to her lit of jobs, which up until now has included photographer, illustrator, blogger, being The Sartorialist's GF, and everyone else's girl crush. Her new line for Kate Spade has arrived, and it is as perky and chic as Dore is.
The line is all about fusing Parisian and New York style. Of one printed dress (above), Dore told Vogue UK, "The idea of this particular print is a cocktail party, the style of France and New York—my two homes. So it's a kind of blending of the two, and that's what you see on the shirt, the dress, the bag." So, basically, Paris and New York might be worlds apart, but everyone understands cocktails.
Want more Dore sketchiness in your life? Head to Vogue Paris. She told Grazia that she's "going to be a Vogue Paris columnist! My first column comes out in this September issue, and I've got two pages because of my illustrations and writing. It was always my dream to be a columnist – and now I’m in FRENCH VOGUE!'" We're excited too, Garance.
