Isabel Marant

Though the years, Isabel Marant has slowly but surely established herself as the "queen of cool" in French fashion. Her signature looks are undeniably Parisian, even though many of them make use of staples worn all over the world. Her key ingredient is attitude. French women, but particularly Parisian women, have a certain nonchalance to them that's both alluring and attractive at the same time. Marant's clothes help magnify that attitude to draw more people in. And even though she has reached international fame, her signature style remains the same. It's probably why she's beloved by customers all over the world.

Chloé

Another "cool girl" label, Chloe has been a major fixture in the Paris fashion scene. The brand did, after all, practically started the pret-a-porter market, also known as 'ready-to-wear.' Without Chloe, clothing companies would have stuck with the practice of copying the fashions from Haute couture brands and selling replicas to customers around the world. But beyond this historical significance, the label has always put French femininity in the forefront. Even when their designs got a little aggressive at times, the overall look remained feminine. Think billow dresses, pussycat bows, and skirt suits, all with a tinge of the boho-chic!

Celine

The third French high fashion label on this list that you can count in the "cool girl" category is Celine. Although this is because its current designer, Hedi Slimane, has changed the brand aesthetic to that of a relaxed chic Parisian who seems to not care about anyone else. The truth is this brand has had a lot of styles over the years, but their main ethos has always been to provide comfortable and chic fashions for their customers. Whether it's Slimane's nonchalant look, Phoebe Philo's sophisticated minimalism, or Michael Kors’ classic luxury, Celine is a French fashion favourite through and through!

Chanel

One can't simply talk about French fashion without mentioning Chanel. The brand—and its namesake founder—essentially started the modern fashion movement.

And, of course, there's the immortal suits and jackets that are so distinct and familiar, they're continuously copied and imitated. The Chanel look is so quintessentially French that, even by just a sporting signature piece, you can already look like you belong in Paris. Beyond the clothes, there's also the iconic bag and the most-bought perfume in retail history!
