Scruples' Parisian Collection Showcases the City's Iridescence

Fondly recognized as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, a trip to Paris surely tops many bucket lists. The culture and food can't be matched, but the dazzling lights and ethereal glamour will make you want to stay forever. In Scruples' latest collection, Paris Amour, Mia Liguori, Scruples Co-President Creative and Creative Director, played on the city's elegance and drew inspiration from the soigné style prominent in French fashion. 

"For me, Paris has always represented understated grace, effortless elegance and a design that is whispered instead of screamed," Liguori says. "To pay tribute to the City of Lights, we had to capture looks that radiated romance, like the city itself." For the artists, it was essential to capture the beauty of minimal, Parisian elegance. The result: a collection of international influence, photographed by North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) winner Jake Thompson, that simply states “Je t’amie Paris.”
