Tastemaker: Garance Dore
Pure and Simple
Born and raised on the island of Corsica, Garance Dore embodies effortless French style. The illustrator, fashion photographer, and blogger (garancedore.com) is always on the lookout for the latest street styles in her adopted city of New York, but her personal aesthetic champions timeless staples. “I like the simplest form of any basic object,” she explains. These pieces are a backdrop for Dore’s experiments with color and texture, such as bright tableware or a chunky necklace. Her new stationery for Rifle Paper Co. reflects this philosophy, featuring her black-and-white sketches with eye-catching accents.
