Garance DorĂ©’s Fashion Notes

-------

Anna Bond and Garance DoreBack in the day, before blogs changed everything, a young Parisian illustrator filled up one notebook after the next, dreaming of how she could create beautiful things. Fast-forward a decade or so, and Garance Doré is finally getting the chance to go back to her roots. “Illustrations ought to be something you can carry with you,” said Doré of her decision to launch a stationery line with Rifle Paper Co., which she feted with a breakfast at organic eatery Claus this morning. “The Rifle Paper Co. cards caught my eye one day, so I sent off an e-mail,” she explained as she greeted friends and admirers including Aurélie Bidermann, Lisa Marie Fernandez, and Laure Heriard Dubreuil. When Anna Bond, the cofounder of the successful young paperie, received that e-mail last August, she was thrilled. “I knew who she was because I had been following her for a long time,” Bond said. “It’s exciting to launch a fashion-related project.” Six months later—tomorrow to be exact—the Garance Doré line of cards, notepads, social stationery, calendars, phone cases, and notebooks is bowing exclusively at Colette, and there’s already more on the way in May. If these drawings of glamorous characters sporting a leopard coat, or a cape, or sunglasses bear a resemblance to those of the great illustrator René Gruau, that is no coincidence. “He is really my idol,” said Doré. “When people say that, it’s the best compliment ever. I don’t think I’m at that level, but maybe one day!”
