Paris Yearning: Milly Summer 2014

This season, Milly designer Michelle Smith offers a chic, slightly retro and very Parisian collection that evokes the essence of 1960s French New Wave cinema. Oui love.


Bistro Belle:  Milly Jersey Tee & Flare Skirt

Channeling the spirit of youthful laissez-faire, the French New Wave films were often shot with improvised equipment by the directors’ friends. Paying homage to their method, we gathered photos from our own friends who captured the dreamy allure of some of Paris’s most iconic sights and experiences—adding inspiration around some of our favorite Milly looks.
