Diane Lane’s Wardrobe (and camera!) in Paris Can Wait

Jun 20, 2017

 

Paris Can Wait is a feast for the eyes not only due to its geographic location set in the South of France and the exiqsuite teasing of the taste buds, but the sartorial selections as well.  After sharing my review of Eleanor Coppola’s film starring Diane Lane yesterday (the Petit Plaisir of this week’s episode of the podcast), many asked a question I too had dancing around in my mind: Where can I find her wardrobe? From the stunning French red dress she chooses to wear to dinner on the first night of their 48 hours excursion, (I am still trying to figure out who designed it – I promise I will share if I find out), to the simple sophisticated linen taupe pants and white linen top finished with espadrilles, Lane’s wardrobe is so refined and understated, it sings as though not to compete with the other magnificent sites to see, but all the while becoming quite the star of the show.

Effortless, classic, the underlining premise of building a wardrobe of quality over quantity which enables the woman wearing the clothing to shine.

While I have looked all over the web for the exact label of linen pants without finding the precise pair, I have found many that are similar at a variety of price points. I have also found espadrilles and white linen shirts for you to peruse as well (see all these items at the end of the post). I do hope you find something you love.

~Updated 7/6/17: Many of you have asked about the digital camera she uses and you can find it here from Leica.

~Updated 7/9/17: The sunglasses are Oliver People’s, The Row style (many colors available)

And now, even more linen inspiration. Enjoy!

  1. Places to look for classic French clothes (no idea where they ship to):
    GaleriesLafayette.com
    Printemps.com
    Caroll.com
    1-2-3.fr
    Those pants with the pleat detail are so typical of French style. Classic, simple, but with a little twist that keeps them from being normcore.
    BTW, I love the message of the movie–that there are so many wonderful things to discover, especially off the beaten track, and that every meal can be a revelation.

  2. Thank you so very much for searching, Shannon! 🙂 The wardrobe Diane Lane uses in the movie is so very elegant! Love the findings! Merci et à la prochaine!

  3. I was delighted to find a Uniqlo during my trip to San Francisco. I had purchased two linen long sleeve button shirts and a blazer in the Paris store, where photos of Ines de la Fressange inspired my selection! My amazing finds yesterday were jeans very much like the ones in the Paris Look Book and a simple black sleeveless tunic, all for amazingly reasonable Prices!

  4. If someone could find that pink dress I would be eternally grateful. I would kill for that pink dress 🙂 Just bought a very nice Linen shirt from NM on sale!

    1. Shannon, I love that you did a post on this. I too loved Diane’s wardrobe. In reply to LindaH the dress link is http://www.revolve.com/privacy-please-reed-dress-in-marchesa/dp/PRIP-WD86/?clickid=3TmTzvwlE3MXQ-pQ6Nwd1w:oUkSSXcUdyQGzTU0&clickid=3TmTzvwlE3MXQ-pQ6Nwd1w:oUkkxbU3keUruX40&d=Womens&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_source=ran&source=ran&utm_campaign=glob_p_QFGLnEolOWg&ranMID=41816&ranEAID=QFGLnEolOWg&ranSiteID=QFGLnEolOWg-rJtVKfdcvl.4mmMlFccMbg#modal-uid-5676571112 but it appears to be sold out. I love my Viscata espadrilles that I brought to Rome with me last year. Stylish and comfortable!

    2. I purchased this season a beautiful blue and white stripe linen dress from Brooks Brothers that I wear back to a white Jean jacket. It’s in the same body style as the pink above. I get so many compliments when I wear it…I even enjoy running an iron over it with a little sizing spray. The fabric is so lush…..😎

  5. Agree…the movie is delightful on so many points! Of course, as designers we also have to comment on the decor. American’s can learn about letting go a bit, letting the imperfections of our homes be the perfection. Like we have “preached” for years…their is a perfect LBD for every home! Can’t wait for you to find the linen suit she had on so we can all splurge! Happy Weekend!-Laurel

  6. I too was inspired by this lovely movie. I felt as though I took a trip to Europe. The beauty of the landscape as well as the food! I too was inspired by the exquisite Diane Lane, her look was so elegant and modest. I was really inspired to study the way she was portrayed in the film. I am about the same age and feel that there is beauty in every stage of our life to be embraced. I think that Hollywood in general is missing it when it comes to promoting beauty at a certain age. It was so refreshing to be entertained without vulgar language or situations. My favorite outfit was the pleated pants! From head to toe, gorgeous understated elegance! Thank you for recognizing this topic and sharing!

  7. The white blouse she wore was silk and I think the pants were as well since they never wrinkled like linen ALWAYS does 😉

    1. Any idea who made the white blouse?
      I’m thinking it is a Bottega Veneta from a few years ago.
      Love the style of it.
