I love Francoise Hardy. She is inspiration. These black & white photos are so beautiful and timeless. I heard she was the inspiration for Balenciaga’s spring 2011 collection (and also some previous ones). Not a surprice really. Once she wrote ” Old men clothed in curly mustaches, float on the benches, blankets of tourists in bright red nylon shirts, with straw hats of ambassadors ..”
Francoise Madeleine Hardy (born 17 January 1944) is a French singer, actress and astrologer. Hardy is an iconic figure in fashion, music and style. She received a guitar on her sixteenth birthday as a reward for passing her baccalaureat (the main diploma required to pursue university studies).
Hardy sings in French, English, Italian, Spanish, German and has one interpretation in Portuguese. The French teenage sensation started her sensation career at the tender age of 17 and became a music/movie star during the 60s and 70s, her gorgeous voice and angelic looks made her an icon. We adore her style and easy-going attitude, Francoise defined “cool” as we know it.
