Francoise Hardy—singer, songwriter, actress…and one of VPV’s favorite fashion icons! This French beauty broke into the music scene in the 1960’s and has remained a permanent influence. Hardy exudes a cool confidence, and is a lesson in timeless fashion. Her perfect mix of mod wardrobe and bohemian vibe provide lasting inspiration. At VPV we especially admire her brow brushing fringe, seemingly effortless mod attire, and moving music.

Blazers…An iconic piece of menswear fashion and a must have staple in your closet. It seems that everywhere you look blazers are to be seen. From fitted, to floral, slouch to tweed, blazers are leaving their mark. Blazers, traditionally a men’s fashion, were made a popular women’s item by the influence of fashion icons such at Katharine Hepburn and Ingrid Bergman. Never out of fashion for long, blazers have enjoyed a long evolution, and are forecasted to remain popular throughout fall 2010. Blazers make fabulous statement pieces and can go with many looks, check out these inspirations—past and present—then shop for your own one of a kind blazer!
