Go figure: as soon as Fall drops upon us, the fashion world wants to talk Spring! The whole concept is much easier though when you remember that it's not just Fashion Week but Paris Fashion Week. Just the thought of Paris has us humming Ella Fitzgerald while pulling out our crinkled, well-loved maps, and Googling "best baguette in all the land." As a tip of the chapeau, we're taking a little tour de France this week with this week's favorite pins.
But right now, instead of obsessing over Spring fashion, we're infatuated with vintage city maps that are as gorgeous as anything coming off the catwalks this week. We heart Paris no matter the season, and dreaming about exploring it is (almost) as good as walking the city's streets themselves. For any friends currently in the City of Lights, we beg you: make sure to take some time to stop to smell the croissants and un cafe au lait (or deux)! And for those of us at home? Let's all uncover a little Parisian inspiration in our own cities -- something petit to tide us over, until we can put those Paris Metro maps to good use.
From top to bottom, this week's favorite pins are:
- Oliver Jeffers' illustrated maps
- Plan de Paris – vintage map
- La Tour Eiffel
- We heart Paris
- Bon voyage
