The newly released Netflix series Emily In Paris, which follows a Chicago native to a new job in Paris, continues to inspire fashion choices around the country. While the show continues to receive criticisms for the tropes, and the way it stereotypes both French and Americans, people can’t seem to stop talking about it. While many viewers point out her style isn’t all that great, there is no denying the overwhelming positive boost in sales it plays, particularly in regards to hats, at least according to fashion search engine Lyst.
Since October 2nd, when the series was first released, searches for bucket hats increased by 342%, while the terms “beret hats” and “berets” rose by 41%. Dara Senders, an American designer currently living in Paris, created her own unique accessories including berets, scarves, and gloves, with a French flair. But the now renowned Emily in Paris wasn’t the inspiration for her colorful, fun, feminine, and chic style. One reason for the spike in hat searches may be due to the fact that they are the most affordable options from her wardrobe, filled with Chanel and Christian Louboutin garments.
Dara Senders, the designer behind the label, is truly the American in Paris- at least according to her Instagram biography @thestylesenders. The mission behind the label is to both design and create beautiful clothing for all women of all sizes from extra small or triple extra-large. According to Dara, she is determined to redefine the fashion industry and is determined to create the same dress designs for both “fuller figured women” and “straight size” women. While an American label, the designs are made in France with fabrics sourced from Italy, Korea, Spain, and Morocco.
The bucket hats, berets, and gloves are embellished with Swarovski Crystals. Dara Senders’ unique styles are beautiful and feminine, this is perfect for women to say “Oh La La” for a perfect Parisian feel. Since the pandemic is limiting traveling plans and adventures, these hats and designs are the perfect way to live out Parisian dreams without actually visiting the Eiffel Tower.
While her hats, gloves, and scarves are all beautiful, Dara is also being incredible socially conscious during the pandemic, creating stylish masks.
