Feline and fickle, she’s on the prowl—up and down the bougie boulevards and in and out of the boîtes de nuit. She playfully types Cinéma Gaumont, Champs Elysées, 1973 into her Uber’s destination box, but it protests with null results. Paris never really changes, and neither must you, Françoise.

Walk like a Parisienne, as the Bangles never sang. From Palais-Royal to Mariage Frères, she flicks her eyes between the golden autumn scene and her iPhone 11Pro screen, ironically anglocentric in her Glen plaid tailoring and Mackintosh.

Is it surprising that a girl of the 16th arrondissement should sound so smokily bohemian? The new Paris pin-up borrows unashamedly from her 1970s counterpart, deploying a healthy dose of rebellion, Catherine Deneuve-y riding boots (nothing says bourgeois like a hint of leisure-time equestrianism), and a Pringle of Scotland cape worthy of the Justice League.
