Lingerie at the Library: Best Books out this fall

French Style is Smart!

Back-to-School, Back to Books

Chanel’s most recent fashion show by Virginie Viard (the woman who took over as head Designer upon the death of Karl Lagerfeld earlier this year), was staged in a library with many of the models sporting spectacles and carrying books. Unsurprisingly, in France, intelligence is considered a particularly alluring quality. In keeping with this theme, we have included here some photos from the latest campaign for LOU Lingerie - also set in a library...
France has a uniquely vibrant publishing industry, and La Rentrée Littéraire (loosely translated as Back-to-school for Books) is considered a key moment in the publishing calendar.

Author of the extraordinary medical novel The Heart, Maylis de Kerangal’s has a new culinary fiction call The Cook (Farrar, Straus and Giroux) - the New York Times reviewer raved.

Olivier Bourdeaut's Waiting for Bojangles (Simon & Schuster) a sort of charming and manic fairytale which was a huge bestseller in France - it may become a movie, rumour has it. The story of an eccentric and fabulous couple, as told by their son, the magic moves from comedy to tragedy over the course of the years.

Alice Zeniter’s French-Algerian fresco The Art of Losing (Farrar, Straus and Giroux) is a novel centered on the life of a first generation French art dealer, who goes to Algeria for the first time to trace the path of her exiled grandfather. It is a beautifully written story dealing with themes of immigration and alienation and integration in modern France.
