Surrounded by bouquets of white flowers and engulfed in what can only be described as a friendly glow, the ambiance at Club Monaco Tuesday night was just as radiant as special guest Garance Doré. Yesterday evening, dozens of impeccably dressed fashion enthusiasts sauntered into the Club Monaco on 15th and Walnut to meet the french photographer, author, and illustrator, in order to celebrate the launch of her new book Love x Style x Life.
Garance and Club Monaco (Who is sponsoring the book tour) worked with Joseph Fox Bookshop, a local Philadelphia bookseller for this event. All tour long, they will continue to work with local independent booksellers in each signing location as a way to support local communities and businesses. No stranger to bibliophilia and beautiful printed pieces, Club Monaco has bookstores in their New York and Montreal stores and after a few years of partnerships, loving Garance’s work and styling, they are psyched to add her book to their shelves.
Garance, who was wearing a classic stripped white blouse with Club Monaco’s Arlet Leather leggings, greeted each attendee with the warmest of smiles as they sat down next to her and chatted for several minutes. What exactly do you say when you sit down and talk with a fashion heavy weight like Garance? Literally everything and anything. Art, fashion, adorable babies, and attractive men were just some of the topics I eavesdropped on as I aggressively paced the floor overwhelmed with just how photogenic everything and everyone was.
Garance is hopping all over Club Monaco's in The United States & Canada to meet with friends and fans alike. Plus she’s sharing her favorite Club Monaco selections - aka the perfect and ultimate guide to chic french girl style which includes sweater goals like the Daylina Ribbed and Kallis Sweater and the coat that I would kill a close relative for, the Kallis Cashmere blend coat.
The Love x Style x Life Book Tour is coming to a city near you, so be sure to pick up a copy at her website. A huge thank you to Club Monaco for the invite to this incredible event, I can't wait to dive into my new favorite book!
