If you’re not fully familiar with Emmanuelle Alt, her name probably at least rings a bell. Alt served as the editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris for ten years, departing last spring. Alt, who now focuses on styling, has a pared-down aesthetic when it comes to her own personal style, and is known for her impeccable wardrobe of neutral basics. When she wears trends, they’re subtle and timeless, like an oversized leather jacket.
My point in telling you all of this is that Alt and Zara just released their second collection together (their first came in July), with Alt serving as creative consultant. The name of the new collection is Into the Classics, and it contains a plethora of timeless pieces with Alt’s signature French twist. It’s pretty much every basic you need for fall in one drop.
Scroll on to shop the best basics from the collection, because given how obsessed us Americans are with Zara and the French, it’ll go fast.
