Let’s be real: When it comes to fashion, the French know what’s up. To celebrate France’s national holiday on July 14, we’ve rounded up 10 French “It” girls who define what it means to be tres chic.
Like black berets and the Eiffel Tower, crusty baguettes have become stereotypical symbols of France. Today, the flaky deliciousness, and easy availability, of French bread is taken for granted. The opposite was true in 1789, when the starving French, unable to purchase their pain quotidian, stormed the Bastille.
French bread might have shed its political symbolism, but the palette-pleasing baguette remains part of the ritual of daily life in France, where it’s bought daily from a local boulangerie, and carried home in bike baskets or tucked neatly under the arm—a conceit that inspired the creation of a cult, close-fitting bag, the Baguette, by the Italian maker Fendi. Here, photos of flaky loaves to commemorate Bastille Day.
