3 LOOKS AND 3 BEAUTY SPOTS FOR A PEACEFUL FOREST STROLL


Every forest has its own aura, its own mystery and its own unique atmosphere. As the weather turns autumnal, we're keen to venture out and recharge our batteries, exploring Mother Nature a stone's throw from Paris. But what does one wear in the forest?

After spending so much time locked indoors, deprived of nature and freedom, feeling the fresh air and cool breeze on our skin is almost a luxury. With the autumn season fast approaching, our sixth sense for style is gradually changing from vibrant sandals and wicker baskets to warmer fabrics, elegant bags and fashionable boots. And luxury label Coach has everything we need for transitional dressing, in particular its Soft Tabby bag. It's an it-bag that would fit in perfectly on a walk, especially in the forest, for filling your lungs with the fresh outdoor air… Getting back to nature in style with a designer bag - it's for our well-being after all! Here are three stylish looks for a forest stroll with Coach.

...IN THE FORÊT DE SAINT-GERMAIN-EN-LAYE

When you arrive in Paris, it's like something comes over you; you suddenly want to compete with the biggest French fashion icons. A beret, knotted scarf and beige woollen coat… It's the perfect ensemble for a classic French look that will be just the ticket for a stroll through the forest of Saint-Germain-en Laye. Just a few kilometres from Paris, an outing in this forest is a chance to walk in the footsteps of France's great kings, including François I, Henri IV and Louis XIV. But such a sophisticated look wouldn't be complete without a classic Coach handbag, like the Alie bag, the Beat shoulder bag with its delicate chain or the timeless Tabby Soft beige.

...IN THE FORÊT DE RAMBOUILLET

Not everyone would want such an elegant look to go for a walk in the forest. And we can see why! To explore the wild pathways of the Rambouillet forest, the more adventurous walkers will want to opt for a more country-style vibe. We're thinking cord pants, a wax jacket and boots for going off the beaten track. And for a successful day's outing in the heart of the beautiful Forêt de Rambouillet, you'll definitely need a large bag. In the Coach range, our choice would be the Willow bag or the Bucket in stunning brown hues.

...IN THE FORÊT DE FONTAINEBLEAU

At the entrance of the capital, the forest of Fontainebleau is full of breathtaking landscapes. A former hunting ground, this green lung is now the preserve of trendy tourists seeking new horizons. So for this breath of fresh air in the great outdoors, you'll want a timeless bohemian look. An indie folk dress, a pastel-coloured sleeveless knit and leather ankle boots will do the job a treat. And what about a handbag? Coach's Beat Saddle, a studded Tabby or the sleek and stylish Madison bag. Think Taylor Swift on her “folklore” album and you can't go wrong.
