Party Hardy: A Francophile Tribute to Francoise

January 17, 2014

Everybody needs a muse “ especially in January. After all, inspiration can be hard to come by this time of year, weeks after the holidays and months before beach days. Our go-to girl? That would be French singer, actress and ˜60s fashion icon Francoise Hardy, who we suspect launched the phrase je ne sais quoi with her coquette charm, silky voice and boho-meets-prep school style. (Did we mention how much we love her hair? So much.) In honor of her 70th birthday (today!) we’ve crafted a celebratory playlist with a decidedly French twist, complete with plenty of her yé-yé ditties. Joyeux anniversaire, Francoise!
