Vogue Paris fashion editor Eugénie Trochu is someone I look to for her expertise in what’s happening on the runways and in the fashion world at large, but also for her cool personal style and how she interprets the latest trends. A quick scroll through her Instagram always leaves me inspired.
Working in fashion and living in Paris has helped shape her personal style, but it was recently that she landed on what feels like “her.” “When I started working in fashion 10 years ago,” she explains, “I was trying to reproduce the fashion cliche of la Parisienne.” Now, she’s dressing for herself and has adopted a more daring sense of style, which translates to what she’s wearing but also what she’s covering as an editor. “I don’t want to show only one image of French-girl style. We are so different and cool—I want to be more creative and bold on how we represent the French look,” she tells us, “the French girl has many faces, shapes, and beauty ideals—like all her neighbors in the world, she’s not an exception.”
So, how does this translate to Trochu’s personal sense of style? Her looks are undeniably chic and as she describes it, “evolving a lot.” “I can be a sexy party girl one day, a supra hippie bobo the day after, and a tomboy the next,” she explains. “I don’t want to be typecast or to be constrained in a box.”
Curious to find out how the fall fashion trends will fit into her ever-evolving style, I asked Trochu to weigh about what she’s most excited to wear for the upcoming season. Ahead, the five fall fashion trends French editor Eugénie Trochu is giving the stamp of approval.
