Ines De La Fressange On The Luxer
For Ines de la Fresange, becoming a fashion icon seemed to be written in the stars. Born to an Argentine model mother and French stockbroker father, a certain kind of pedigree was already on la Fresange’s side. Match this with height and a gamine figure ideal for haute couture, and it would seem like a winning combination for success in fashion. That said, to be the first model to garner an exclusive modeling contract with Chanel warrants more than having the ideal look and background. To be the face of a brand involves so much more—basically, a quality that transcends the clothes and embodies an attitude. It is no wonder why the label of muse is always attached to her, though she modestly shies away from this descriptor. “One can’t decide this kind of thing,” she said giddily at the Hotel Particulier. “But honestly, I don’t really think a real creative person needs one muse; He or she would rather be inspired by plenty of things, people and images.”
