THE COLORFUL SYMBIOSIS BETWEEN FOOD AND FASHION FINDS ITS NATURAL HABITAT ON A GREY DAY IN THE STREET MARKETS OF PARIS, WHERE CARROTS ARE CARRIED LIKE DESIGNER HANDBAGS (AND LEEKS LIKE A BOUQUET OF ROSES) BY STYLISH GRANDDAUGHTERS ON A MISSION TO FIND THE PRETTIEST INGREDIENTS OF GRANDMA'S TRADITIONAL SALMON EN CROÛTE.

A starry ruby eco fur coat by HILFIGER COLLECTION brings a smile to the vegetable stalls. On all pages: Madison wears Brunehilde rings in vermeil and chrysoprase, or white labradorite, by EMMANUELLE ZYSMAN, rings in yellow gold and sapphires by ANAÏS RHEINER, a set of Brunehilde bracelets in vermeil with green tourmaline, turquoise and cornelian by EMMANUELLE ZYSMAN, Déa bracelet in yellow gold with rubies and diamonds by AIMÉE.AIMER, grains bracelet in yellow gold with one diamond by AIMÉE.AIMER, BB Frida bracelet in vermeil and cornelian by EMMANUELLE ZYSMAN.

Orchids matching the French flag colors worn by the fish merchant adorn this FENDI black silk dress with a geometric frontal slit, revealing the raw linen high boots with open toe by ACNE STUDIOS resort collection. The look is completed with lapis lazuli FALKE socks, and CÉLINE’s “curved” leather bag.

A bouquet of leeks on its way to grandma’s kitchen embraced by the Gauguin tones of an ankle length raw-cut wool and silk chiffon coat by MARNI.

In Paris street vendors wear LACOSTE, while Madison counters with an embroidered black coat embellished with colored feathers and “claire de lune” pearls by VALENTINO, worn over a printed mandarin collar shirt by Y’S. The textures atop are balanced with crocodile green silk trousers by DRIES VAN NOTEN.

Come rain or shine, only gingers get away with wearing turquoise. Lying on the floor, the leather overcoat by MIU MIU stands out between the crowd of oranges and the bottle green GUCCI polo made of extra fine cotton and merino wool, paired with a sequinned pencil skirt by N°21 and lightened by a pair of silk and cotton bobby socks by PRADA.

Rabbits eat carrots while snakes eat rabbits. In the middle of the food chain, Madison wears a python leather jacket and skirt dyed in military green tones by GUCCI, combined with a golden silk jacquard blouse with roses motif by PRADA. The tobacco shoulder bag, also by PRADA, hides behind the carrots. The look culminates with orange wool stockings by FALKE and patchwork platform sandals with wooden heels by PRADA.

Enjoying a five o’clock glass of wine (in France there’s no such thing as drinking age) with the right amount of shoulder exposure, Madison wears a refined black sheer dress with embroidered flowers by BALENCIAGA.

From above, grandma adds a few more ingredients to the shopping list, while Madison listens carefully wearing a waxed soft leather coat with green brocade inserts by PRADA over a multicolored fringed dress from the DRIES VAN NOTEN collection. A silk carré by GUCCI worn as a hood contains the hair frizz. The look is completed with calfskin jacquard platform heels by PRADA, paired with dual green socks by FALKE.

A grey summer morning is the opportune moment to wear this silk hand-embroidered “tattoo” wool coat by NEITH NEYER worn over an embroidered lace pencil skirt made precious by tone on tone sequins by N°21.

The first drops of rain catch a moving shadow equipped for the occasion, while Madison makes do with an aged gold jacquard paletot printed with a “blurred monkey” pattern and raw seams by LANVIN, worn over a printed light silk jacquard duster coat by PRADA. Underneath, a cream cotton and silk melange knitted cardigan by HERMÈS is tastefully paired with a black knitted silk skirt by CÉLINE. Elaborate embroidery adorns the leather belt with stones by N°21 and the beaded satin flat sandals by BALENCIAGA.

Madison catches a few raindrops undisturbed. She wears a shabby leather jacket with purple pockets from the ACNE STUDIOS resort collection, together with a cotton top worn over a magnificent jacquard skirt with floral prints by DIOR. The look is raised by calfskin platform shoes by PRADA worn with ankle socks by EMILIO CAVALLINI.

Anticipating grandma’s salmon en croûte, Madison lengths her stride aboard a short printed tweed tailleur with rubber spots and contrasting trim by CHANEL. The shoulder bag adorned with flat studs and enamel buckle by PAULA CADEMARTORI blends nicely against the white spots, while the psychedelic ankle socks from EMILIO CAVALLINI and patchwork platform sandals by PRADA tinge the pavement.
