Every so often I’m in the picture. This time to ask: Why did Guillaume Gibault create LeSlip Francais? Because he’s French and it’s essential! Yeah, underwear and swimwear are two things we all need and love.  But why am I behind this?  Because this product is 100% French, manufactured in nine state-of-art factories around France. I’m a huge fan of manufacturing returning to grass roots, home country, whether it’s “made in France,” “made in Italy,” or “made in USA,” I want to endorse and support these businesses.  This is not a fashion statement, only my intention to help a national economy thrive! Find LeSlip Francais pop-up store in LA opening 3/29/15.  Thanks to my dear friend Anne Marie Rossi, once buyer at Barney’s ( hugging the model) for this great evening! http://www.leslipfrancais.fr/en/
