Selected by Garance Doré:
‘Beautiful Classics’ with a French Flair

“A perfectly edited wardrobe can set you free,” says Garance Doré. “You will need less and buy better.” It is with this principle in mind that the Corsican-born fashion photographer, illustrator, and writer surveys the walk-in closet at The Apartment by The Line – New York. Seeking out versions of her own “style essentials” as well as pieces that build upon them, she reaches for Acne’s wool sweaterdress, glossy Repetto loafers, and a striking one-shoulder top from J.W. Anderson. “This is the kind of top I would travel with,” explains Doré, “because you can wear it with anything and it makes it look elevated and cool.”

Also earning her endorsement are a strapless style from Protagonist (“my idea of the perfect little black dress”), Altuzarra’s sheer lace blouse (“feels French, no?”), and a Mansur Gavriel bag in a sandy hue that fits within the “very restrained”—and trend-trumping—color palette she prefers. A double-faced coat of charcoal wool stands out for both its “beautiful simplicity” and distinctive D-ring closure, which leads to the jewelry of Tom Wood. “I was looking at this ring and thinking, why don’t I have it yet?” she says of a design in rose gold. “It’s such a beautiful classic.”

From among the lotions, potions, and tools arrayed near The Apartment’s free-standing bathtub, Doré selects a Susanne Kaufmann body oil blended in Austria from plant-based ingredients. “I love oils. I use them on my face, my body, and my hair,” she says. “The more organic the better—they carry scents in an exquisite way.” Another fragrant favorite is Maison Balzac’s Le Soleil candle, infused with bright and zesty citrus notes. “Candles, always, all the time!” advises Doré. “And a little bit of the sun everywhere I go, please.”
