New Obsession: Garance Doré

I recently came across an art shop (via Pinterest of course) that literally took my breath away. The artwork is delicately chic and created by Garance Doré, an illustrator and blogger originally from Corsica but now residing in New York City:



This is my current favorite:




Garance started as an illustrator, following in the footsteps of her idols René Gruau and Antonio Lopez with timeless, classic and beautiful illustration.

Her illustration talent has allowed her to collaborate with brands such as Dior, Louis Vuitton, Céline, Kate Spade, Chloé, Tiffany & Co., Chopard, and Reed Krakoff.  She did a special illustrated cover for Elle UK and her illustrations appear every month in her Paris Vogue column




Truly the peak of très chic, no?
Check out her portfolio and available work for purchase here.
