Nymphet Alumni

Following the passing of icon of effortlessness and honorary Frenchwoman Jane Birkin, we examine the mythology of the French girl — from the culture of chic aphorisms that surround her (Don’t be afraid of aging! Wear a black bra under your white blouse!), her philosophy as a form of IDGAF-ism, and how the most beloved representatives of French style aren't even French at all. Plús, we discuss Franco-American relations, the French girl digital media microeconomy, the subtle art of the basket bag and... le goûter!!
