“If it were not for the way I dress, no one would notice me.”
The birth of streetsyle is thanks to Françoise Hardy, actress and singer-songwriter but above all a style icon.
Her casual and chic style made of miniskirts, flare trousers, tight-fitting turtlenecks and ankle boot have made her a unique symbol of grace and elegance: inspiring muse for many great artists as Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, her favourite designer Yves Saint Laurent and the Japanese brand Comme Des Garçons, which owes its name to Françoise and to "Tous les garçons et les filles", her best known song.
If you are fascinated from her style you cannot do without a pair of ankle boot.
"The shoe is not just an object made for walking but it is also an experimental tool of freedom." How can we blame Laurence Dacade, a Parisian designer who launched her eponymous shoe brand in 2003. Sexy and elegant, chic but never boring, feminine, cool and above all comfortable, her shoes are designed for modern Cinderellas, rock and that give up a French touch.
Founded in 2015, Paris Texas is an Italian brand that takes its inspiration from a woman with a strong personality, independent and fashionable. Characterized by pop colours and modern shapes, such as these boots in metallic printed purple leather with a rounded toe. The Paris Texas shoes are not just for aesthetics, but use high quality materials and make the Made in Italy one of its strengths.
Are you devote to Parisian elegance? Isabel Marant is synonym and evidence. Her ankle boots are now iconic and declined in various shapes and materials like this model in leather with python print. The French designer knows without doubt grasping the desires and needs of women, representing with her contemporary and bohémien style an absolute reference point.

The ankle boots Rylee of Chloè are characterized by a modern silhouette and a mood that reminds to the cowboys. They are realized in shiny white calfskin and if you look at them, you easily notice the two adjustable buckle straps and the large heel. A bold combination of femininity and a touch of a tomboy.
