I’m not sure what I expected from Camille, but I feel as though she undermined and surpassed everything I had thought she might be! She invited Erik and I over to her apartment in Paris on a rainy afternoon – one of those perfectly cozy days, when all you want to do is drink tea and wrap yourself up in oversized knits… So that’s exactly what we did.
Camille is a wonderful contradiction, who really loves a turtleneck… ! A former lawyer who stumbled into the super glamorous and crazy life of a fashion blogger; a Parisian who now lives in London; a “fashion girl” who is completely down to earth and charming – and has impeccable taste in classical French music (the amazing talents you find in people when you get comfortable with them for an entire afternoon!).
So, as she told us about how she crossed the English Channel one day for love and has stayed there ever since, and how she never planned on being a fashion blogger, it all just sort of happened, she showed us the cozy pieces that she takes with her on her travels.
(And I had to include some of her favorite tracks that we were listening to, too!)
Charles Aznavour – Formidable
Charles Trenet – La mer
Jacques Dutronc – J’aime les filles
Serge Gainsbourg – La Javanaise
Pink Martini – Sympathique
