CAROLINE DE MAIGRET ON MUSIC
Super cool model and style icon Caroline de Maigret will dj at the H&M Studio fashion show in Paris on Wednesday night. We asked her about her guilty music pleasures – and what she sings in the shower.
Not only is Caroline de Maigret an international style icon and the epitome of French chic; she is also a producer, the owner of a record label and an ultra cool dj. So who would be better to create the soundtrack for the H&M Studio A/W 15 fashion show?
”I want people in the audience to feel good and happy. I want them to move their body, even unconsciously, to the rhythm,” says de Maigret, who will perform a live dj set to kick off the runway show.
WHICH SONG IS THE ULTIMATE FASHION TUNE?
”Bad Girls, M.I.A.”
DO YOU HAVE A GUILTY MUSIC PLEASURE?
”Really had to search far for this one! Careless Whisper by George Michael. ”
WHICH SONG DO YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO DANCE TO WHEN YOU HEAR?
”LL COOL J – Mama Said Knock You Out.”
WHAT DO YOU SING IN THE SHOWER?
”Ça a Raté by Françoise Hardy. ”
YOUR FAVOURITE SONG TO CRY TO?
”Neil Young’s On the Beach.”
DID YOU ALWAYS KNOW YOU WANTED TO WORK WITH MUSIC?
”No, but I always knew music was going to be a big part of my life. Music goes hand in hand with my emotions, and I like that. I like the goose bumps, the weakness, the strength, the energy it gives me.”
A PART FROM THIS SHOW, OF COURSE – WHAT’S YOUR COOLEST DJ GIG?
”My best souvenir would be the day I designed a whole party with my friend and artist André for Chanel in Paris. We dj’d to warm up the party; it was a really great night!”
