Gabrielle Rothschild is a 14-year-old francophile fashion designer in California. J’adore this dress! Here’s what she says about her inspirations:
The inspiration for my clothing line mostly comes from places in France, such as the Arc de Triomphe, Monet’s garden, 31 Rue Cambon, and especially la Tour Eiffel (the Eiffel Tower)! I also love art, so Van Gogh, Monet, Da Vinci, and Degas frequently inspire me.
France’s soccer team (referred to unofficially as les Bleus) has a new jersey for away games designed by Nike. Some seem to think it’s a cliché (yet another incarnation of the marinière), but we think it’s classy and sharp! We’ll be checking the FFF boutique to see if they will be available to the public.

Her francophile style has been seen everywhere: on scarves for DKNY and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, in the “Vive La France” campaign for Bloomingdale’s, in her redesign of Saks Fifth Avenue children’s department and the list goes on….
