A sharp-witted Parisian, Mlle Agnes (AKA Agnès Boulard) is renowned as an incisive fashion documentarian, journalist and comedic force. She is the epitome of effortless French-woman-chic and has been an irreverent voice in French fashion for over two decades. The French ritually tune into her television shows after every fashion week to revel in her hilarious impersonations and interviews of key fashion insiders, designers and critics. And, with her long-standing collaborator LoÏc Prigent she has produced 'Signe Chanel', the documentary, which gave us front row seats to the world of Couture. As a style icon in her own right, she shares with us her favourite Re-SEE looks.
Agnès epitomizes what her friend and collaborator Loïc Prigent once described as “a Paris lady. She smokes in the building even if it’s forbidden.”

Your 5 chic French woman's tips for buying vintage
One Thursday a month, go to the flea market at Place de la Bourse where you will find Laure Deleris (@lauredeleris)
Do not hesitate to enter a vintage boutique whether you have 3 hours or 5 minutes: you can always find something, whether it be a belt, jewelry or a scarf
It has happened to me in the past to go back to a shop and swap a piece I bought a year ago for another
Don't hesitate to go to your local tailor to have the length of your pieces adjusted to suit you or add a detail to your liking!
When you are told: "How beautiful is your dress, where did you find it?" always answer: it's she who found me - it is vintage!
