The New Garconne: How to be a Modern Gentlewoman

October 19, 2016

Botanic Lab were proud to support our good friend and all round top cat Navaz Batliwala at the recent launch of her first book The New Garconne: How to be a Modern Gentlewoman. 

If anyone was destined to write a book on how to be a modern garcon manque (tomboy), it's Navaz.  She is THE Modern Gentlewoman.   The New Garconne is a tribute to the gown up tomboys she admires and features interviews with enigmatic figures including Bella Freud, Caroline Issa and Laurence Dacade, photographed in their home or working environment, no styling, just as they are.

This visually inspiring book explores the look, history and essence of gentlewoman style. It also features profiles of modern women who typify the style, alongside beautifully photographed and curated imagery and how-to-get-the-look information.

Guests at the launch, at the Paul Smith store in Mayfair, couldn't get enough of the BOTANICS cold pressed range; the only choice for such a sophisticated crowd of connoissuers.
