There is this quality possessed by Parisian women that the world covets. They call it je ne sais quoi—an intangible essence that cannot be easily named. As she motions towards a display of rosy blooms, Alexa draws a few parallels to the Parisian woman:
“She’s very, very pretty but she’s not perfect; she’s real.”
In the two new mini-films from Longchamp, ‘J’aime Paris’ and ‘La Parisienne’, the beautiful city of Paris plays backdrop to candid quips by Alexa. The light-hearted and humorous tone reflects the tongue-in-cheek persona of the films’ director, Loïc Prigent, a journalist and fashion documentary maker whose witty tweets from the front row add to the fanfare of Paris Fashion Week.
Revealing that she has often been mistaken for a local in the French capital, Alexa admits she finds it flattering. “Alexa is a master of the applied art that I call Parisiannité. She does exactly what she wants, she is fiercely independent, always curious, always perceptive and – frankly – a bundle of laughs,” comments Prigent on the always effervescent Brit.
So ladies, watch the mini-films below, take notes, and let your inner Parisian shine.
