Garance Doré Fetes Collection With Kate Spade

The French style blogger and illustrator turned up at the brand's boutique in London’s Covent Garden Thursday.

ILLUSTRATED FASHION: French style blogger and illustrator Garance Doré turned up at the Kate Spade boutique in London’s Covent Garden Thursday evening to fete the launch of the capsule collection she’s created with the label. The lineup includes Fifties-style cocktail dresses, purses, sweaters and accessories, many of which are printed with Doré’s charming illustrations and quintessentially French sayings.

“The idea was to do something that pops, that is easy and fun,” said Doré of the collection, which hit Kate Spade stores last week. And she noted that working with the brand’s design team provided something of a fast-track education in fashion. “Making clothes is totally different. For me as an artist, I learned so much,” said Doré.

While she’s in London, Doré said she plans to catch up with friends and meet some of her readers. She’s also busy working on the next season of her “Pardon My French” series of film vignettes, which are featured on her Web site garancedore.fr. “It’s a new adventure,” said Doré of her film work. Her most recent films spotlight Doré at locales such as the Cannes Film Festival and on a trip to Tokyo with Dior. The “Pardon My French” slogan also makes an appearance in Doré’s Kate Spade collection, emblazoned on a simple white T-shirt.
