Daily uniform: During the day I dress pretty casually: Acne jeans, men’s t-shirts or sweaters, I love buttoned up white shirts, paired with Martin Margiela boots or Repetto shoes. I have a thing for overalls as well.
Greatest hits: I have a vintage fur coat that looks exactly like Margot Tenenbaum which I absolutely love. I recently purchased these amazing tight black Chanel boots that look very 60s, so cute. I have a few kimonos that I like to wear as dresses in the evening, there is one in particular that I found in a vintage store in Montauk that's a real hit. Finally my Burberry leather jacket because it’s a classic.
Preferred footwear: I hardly ever wear heels during the day unless I need to go to castings. Margiela makes the best boots. In the evening I'll go for heels—I like them colorful. I also love to wear my dirty low-rise white Converse sneakers with a pretty fancy dress, though.
Finishing touches: I hardly wear jewelry except for two gold hoops in my left ear and the Chanel Camelia ring that I never take off. I finish my outfits with a spray of perfume—I alternate between Rose Noir from Byredo and Chloé.
Nighttime look: It depends on my mood: I usually go pretty 60s inspired. I love ridiculously short dresses with little ballet pumps (my favorites are from Repetto and are called Camille! with a tiny little heel). I love kimonos as well, and in the summer I love wearing white with very colorful heels and red lipstick. If I’m planning on dancing, though, I need to wear flats.
Best recent discovery: I just moved to NYC and I’ve been missing my French croissants. A friend just introduced me to Ceci-Cela bakery. Their pastries are Paris worthy! Another recent discovery is Netflix, they have all my favorite French films and great documentaries.
Favorite stores: I love La Hune bookstore in Paris for French books. The Dries van Noten store in Paris is beautiful and I love their clothes. Opening Ceremony always has a great selection. Kisan concept store in Soho is great as well, they have great books and DVDs and I recently bought the cutest pillows for my new apt.
Style pet peeve: Too tight…
Style icons: Marianne Faithful, Bonnie Parker, Kate Moss.
Last purchase: A vintage 1970s bikini for my summer in Corsica and Marni boots with a big velvet bow on top.
Lusting after: Celine’s fall collection, holidays...
Favorite haunts: In NYC: Bowery Hotel for their ginger drink; Tartinery in Nolita is my cantine, I go there almost every single day. They have charming French owners and delicious desserts. In Paris: "Marche des enfants rouges" on rue de Bretagne is a great world food market. "Les deux amis" on rue Oberkampf has the best food and wine! Deyrolles' I love going there because I collect butterflies, it’s like a museum. In London, Fat Faced Cat is one of my favorite vintage stores, it’s my first stop whenever I’m there.
