The New Garconne is a non-prescriptive guide for today’s modern, independent and stylish woman. It espouses a grown-up style and attitude with a masculine-feminine aesthetic, where culture, history, beauty, intelligence, feminism, quality and taste are celebrated.
Women who embody the look include Katharine Hepburn, Andree Putman, Lauren Hutton, Janelle Monáe, Phoebe Philo, Ines de la Fressange, Tilda Swinton, Stella Tennant and Joan Didion.
This visually inspiring book explores the look, history and essence of gentlewoman style. It also features profiles of modern women who typify the style, alongside beautifully photographed and curated imagery and how-to-get-the-look information.
'From Coco Chanel to the playwright Françoise Sagan, women have long stood out for androgynous fashion that questioned gender norms. The New Garçonne: How to be a Modern Gentlewoman explores the codes of being a modern day garçon manqué (tomboy)'
