The Jewish Chronicle - - FASHION -

French style is hard to beat. The French al­ways look ef­fort­lessly el­e­gant, whether they’re wear­ing their week­end ca­su­als or tai­lored work-day uni­form. But that’s no rea­son why we Brits can’t try to keep up. In fact, thanks to the in­flux of French fash­ion com­ing to our shores, it’s a great op­por­tu­nity to try and copy­cat Bre­ton stripes, camel tones and time­less spirit. Comptoir des Cotonniers is a great place to start. Since open­ing its first stores in 1995, its suc­cess has con­tin­ued to grow due to the per­fect bal­ance of moder­nity, so­phis­ti­ca­tion and easy-to-wear cloth­ing. The bulk of ev­ery col­lec­tion makes up the ba­sics of ev­ery woman’s wardrobe but with sur­prise el­e­ments too, such as jump­suits and gau­cho pants that add a con­tem­po­rary twist. You won’t find a bargain but you will find qual­ity fin­ishes that will stand the test of time.
