Adult coloring gets a makeover with these charming, fashion-forward illustrations from the world's most romantic city.
Wherever you’re off to, take Paris Street Style with you. Transport yourself to the corner pâtisserie, and give life to the stylish essentials laid out from your suitcase. Beautifully detailed outfits, accessories, and hairstyles complement the equally ornate cityscapes. Embellish whimsical, full-page patterns and classic dresses with your own style. Window shop the elegant stores of Paris while you give life to playful fashion.
Like a high-end journal, this sleek package has an elastic closure and a satin ribbon marker so you can dip in and dip out of your own French fashion week. With nothing more than some colored pencils, you'll be on your way to a stress-free, Parisian-chic day.
Zoe de las Cases is the author of the adult coloring books Secret Paris, Secret New York, and Secret Toyko. She lives in Paris.
The drawing style is similar to all of her other books: a sort of sketchy line style (see pictures below). It's still easy to color in but the hand drawn style feels more authentic, like you could be a chic fashion designer working on your next line. There are five main types of pictures: head-to-toe fashion looks as worn by people, "spreads" of different clothing or beauty items together (see the skirt example below), artistic-y headshots with inspirational(ish) quotes, some vintage-y patterns and a few scenes. The scenes are my least favorite just because they tend to be very zoomed in on buildings or architecture, but the variety is nice.
ALSO: the paper (and book) quality is A+. Unlike my Secret Paris book, I can actually use Staedtler Fine Liners in this book without bleed through. The paper also seems to have less grooves than other de las Cases books, so my Prismacolor Premier pencils seem to lay down color with less white sticking through. The book feels so nicely bound. You can spread it flat without cracking the binding, and there's a black ribbon that you can use to mark your place. It also has a rubber band to hold it close, so the book retains the shape. It's a little oddly sized - square, but slightly smaller than a normal coloring book but not really what I'd call journal size, either.
I cannot tell you how amazing this book is. If you're a fan of fashion, beauty and whimsy, you have to grab this one.
