Renee Perle | muse


“Tall, slim, a long neck, a shining lock of hair caressing her mouth. I see the reflection of Renee’s beauty in women’s eyes and men’s glances…Beside her, other women look like farm girls. 
– Lartigue’s Diary: Paris, March 10, 1930 

Muse & girlfriend to photographer, Jacques Henri Lartigue, Renee Perle was a Romanian model living in Paris in the late 1920s, early 1930s with the quintessential jazz age look- lean, mysterious, smouldering and arrestingly gorgeous. I particularly love how she sports the simplest of garments (a t-shirt, a tank top!) and elevates them entirely. I also love her arm laden with thin bangles, gonna have to try that...

WOW! Ive never heard of her so thanks for the introduction! The bow on the dress/tank (3rd set of pics down) reminds me of the bow collar on the bolero dress set you bought from me!

This is so funny - I had never heard of her but just yesterday was visiting the Errant Aesthete's blog and she had posted about Renee last year: http://theerrantaesthete.com/2012/03/18/lartigues-angel/

There must be something in the air! - Deane

She is definitely muse-worthy. All I could think looking at these pictures was that she seemed so modern - a net hat with a t-shirt, giant bangle and dark nails? Why don't we all do that?

Wow she is gorgeous! I love the simplicity of her style, especially the T-shirt picture.
