Oh, the Places Lou Goes…
Today, Lou Doillon drops her new album, Places in the United States. And last night, the singer-cum-model-cum-socialite Parisienne (who happens to be the daughter of Jane Birkin) proved her transatlantic star power, packing New York’s Le Baron to what felt like well beyond capacity with a glittery Euro-American crowd.
Taking the stage with but one guitarist, Doillon belted out a selection of new tracks from Places with a surprisingly American twang. She was soulful, clear, and melancholic, but still coolly detached in the way only a messy-haired Frenchwoman can be.
“I’ve been a fan of Lou’s for a really long time,” said Pamela Love, who hosted the event, which was part of Absolut Vodka’s Encore Sessions. Between embraces with Olivier Zahm, the designer added, “I love her style, everything about her, in addition to her music.” When pressed as to the presence of musical inspirations in her bohemian designs, Love replied, “Musicians almost always anchor my stylistic jump-offs—it’s the way they carry themselves.”
