Paul & Joe Sister

Posted by Brett Glass on Thu, Aug 14, 2008 at 3:52 PM

I've long been a fan of Paul & Joe, the French label that combines simple silhouettes with a particular brand of bohemianism that seems very Parisian to me-- lots of sublime color, intricate patterns, gauzy fabrics. Everything is so carefree and easy, you know? La de da.
Their diffusion line, Paul & Joe Sister, has the same basic aesthetic, just a bit quirkier...and about half the price of big girl P&J.
Parallel has done a great job of pulling the best of the collection (although Le Train Bleu has a couple of cuties, too).
My faves from Parallel's pull:

Tiny floral print: sweet!

Mannix, Parallel co-owner, says about this avian print: "If a girl came in here and tried this on right now, I think I'd fall in love with her."

Okay, so it's 100 degrees out. But one day soon you will appreciate this beautiful bottle-green coat.
