Francophilia: Charles and Valentine.

The collaboration between Charles Anastase and Valentine Fillol Cordier is more than just a suitable work arrangement. You do get the feeling these two London-based French expats have a close relationship, understanding each other deeper than 'this season's look'. Or at least, I do and this adds that extra little touch to how I view Charle's collections. Valentine, I love; her personal style, that effortless manner that breaths a chic practicality to her looks only Parisian girls seem to get just-right but combined with a touch of London attitude. These are some images from the Charles Anastase Resort '11 collection that she has styled, as shot by Jessy Adams. I love the patent black raincoat, the white shirt, the ankle length black trousers and high-waist washed jeans and yes, the shiny, sparkly gold jacket! In fact, these images even make me want crazy curly curls and this is how whatever Charles and Valentine do gets in my head!
