French women have long mastered the art of effortless style - looking like you woke up stylish and didn’t try AT ALL. But I’ve noticed that easy style has taken very well to the sunny streets of LA where lucky west coasters get to dress for spring all year round (insert bitter New Yorker grunt). And no one this side of the 405 does it better than our friend Annina. She’s a stylist and one of the cutest people alive who never ceases to amaze when it comes to looking casual and chic all at the same time. We partnered with LA based brand Vince to spend a day with her as she styles their spring collection and goes about the easy cali life. Basically, we are packing our bags to join Garance and Annina in LaLa land.

8 am
“I’ve always enjoyed living in LA. It still has a wild west mentality - you can do whatever you want if you carve out the space for it.”
10 AM

“I haven’t had caffeine for years but I enjoy herbal tea in the morning before heading to work in my studio downstairs, to set or out to prep for a job.”

2 PM

“My outfit choices depend a lot on the type of day I’m going to have. If I’m pulling product I like to mix in comfortable elements that move well.”

“I run around West Hollywood a lot looking for the perfect pieces. I’ve spent many afternoons combing the racks at The Line.”

“I love collaborating with new creative teams. Different perspectives inspire me.”

5 PM

Follow our friend Annina and check out Vince's spring collection!

A special thanks to The Apartment by The Line and Verve Coffee.

  • J’aime beaucoup cette nouvelle forme / structure d’article avec ces photos animées, ces différences de taille… Voila pour la forme :)

    Pour le fond ça donne très envie de prendre ces valises et de vous rejoindre, la vie à l’air tellement belle, tellement simple et parfaite !

    Enjoy !

  • Ces photos me donnent en effet, l’envie de faire ma valise et de m’envoler pour LA !
    Je n’ai pas trop a me plaindre en ce qui concerne le climat en Floride ou je vis, mais j’echangerais, si c’etait possible, ma maison pour un bungalow pas loin de la plage a San Diego (ou j’ai vecu 5 ans), ou bien plus pres de LA, Malibu ou Santa Monica.
    J’aime beaucoup la nouvelle mise en page, les photos animees et la premiere photo de Annina en chemise rayee et pantalon marine. :-)

  • My husband LOVES that brand!

  • It’s always fun to hear about somebody like Annina, but WOW your new layout really rocks.

  • I love her jewelry! Could you find out who made her rings and necklace?

    I’m so happy that Garance is in Los Angeles! I moved here almost 30 years ago from Philadelphia and haven’t looked back. Yes…it is Spring all year long! One note for your writers…people from California don’t call it “Cali”. xoxo

  • The new design of the website looks so sunny and warm and fresh! I can’t help but think about California when I look at it. I’ve never been there but I feel like atelierdore brings a piece of it to me via the website. I really do feel this!

    And I’d so love to go there! Maybe I can go once there is the open studio Garance was talking about? That would be a dream come true!

  • C’est joli et inspirant mais HORRIBLEMENT CHER! Très très très éloigné de ce que peu shopper une personne “normale” même si elle fait partie des plus favorisés….

  • The Vince spring collection looks great! I love that green suede jacket!

    I’m a native, and we don’t say La La land either….

  • The west coast ease is rather unique. Unlike France our west coast residents think nothing of wearing yoga pants to brunch, sweat shirts to the office and sneakers everywhere! Don’t get absorbed by this carefree/careless vibe , it doesn’t suit everyone.
    Dress The Part

  • I love your stripe shirt, you look so beautiful and effortless <3

  • I hate to say it but I feel like all of these Venice women look the same — kind of blandly brightly curated. My favorite line from Love Style Life is “nobody perfect is cool, and nobody cool is perfect.” I think LA has a lot more “cool” to offer than these latest posts would suggest. The (relatively) cheaper areas are where the innovation is happening.

    So beautiful. I love that these are easy to wear things that will compliment any closet you might have already.

  • This is a dream. There’s no city like L.A. and i am such a sucker for LA style, love the slip dress, the gorgeous shadow on the chalky building, and the suede jacket, thanks for this, goes into the inspo folder!

  • Tout a fait d’accord avec Rose…

    I love the integration of the gifs in the style story! This new website layout is just beautiful. Well done. I’m hooked(even more than I was before!). xox
