Zara Tapped Charlotte Gainsbourg to Design the Perfect Denim

Actor and style icon Charlotte Gainsbourg designed a capsule collection for Zara. She explains how her family's style influenced the Zara collection.

Gainsbourg applied the philosophy she uses to choose film and music projects to deciding what would make the final cut:"I tried to please myself," she says.She also infused the collection with a sense of personal history, in some ways more obvious than others. A coat that Gainsbourg remembers her father wearing influenced a corduroy trench. The entire collection's laid-back aesthetic, meanwhile, channels her father's house growing up.

"He had a lot of objects in his house, and he used to put them in a certain way, and it looked like a whole mess, but it was a very well organized mess," Gainsbourg explains. That insouciant facade is at play in her slightly-transparent t-shirts and straight-leg jeans."The looks are not messy, but they do give an impression of not caring."

Courtesy of ZaraThere's no questioning that this collection is one hundred percent Charlotte Gainsbourg. But as our call winds down, Gainsbourg admits she wants her Zara pieces to be more than personal."The thing that I’m really curious about, and that I’m hoping for, is to see exactly the opposite of who I am wearing these clothes," Gainsbourg says."I’m hoping that it’ll fit any type of woman, because that’s what I want to see. You want to see a personality—you don’t want to see just clothes."
