On a trip to Paris this spring, I became obsessed with Lou Doillon, daughter of Jane Birkin. Her influence is everywhere: bohemian with a slightly tough, rock-n-roll edge, but also a touch of luxury. It is all so impossibly chic the way these women zip around Paris on their motorbikes, clad in leather jackets or leather pants and layers of scarves and jewelry. The key to this look is the right balance: keeping delicate or frilly things toned down with something a little edgy (a flowy, silky dress with a motorcycle jacket) and vice versa (a strand of pearls or rhinestones with a flannel shirt and trousers). Mlle Doillon is also the master at making menswear incredibly feminine and sexy. And last but not least ... don't dare brush your hair! Click SEE SLIDESHOW for more examples!
