So what is Garconne style. In brief. A woman who emdodies a quietly assured, masculine-feminine style. So it’s french for tomboy.
The women above are early examples of Garconne style, some had shunned societal conventions of dress and behaviour and embraced an adventurous spirit in life and dress.
Today the new Garconne has a book written about her and a shop in lower Manhatten curated in the Garconne style called – surprise – Garconne.
She is not interested in the – get the look culture of fast fashion – but prefers the best version of any item.
I have gathered some images that tell the Garconne story.
