Statement details with French blogger Leeloo
Bell sleeves, zips and bold earrings – this is how you put a new spin on everyday style.
It has only been a year since Parisian Leeloo decided to devote all of her time to her blog,”Le Dressing de Leeloo.” ”Quitting my former job was the best choice of my life!” muses the Parisian, who also freelances as a stylist and art director. ”This autumn is filled with interesting and creative projects.” Her most exciting project (as she jokingly refers to it), is however a baby – yes, expect to see some very chic pregnancy and maternity style on an Instagram account near you soon.
Earlier this month, during Paris fashion week, Leeloo styled her current H&M favourites.
WHAT IS YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE?
”I don’t have a specific signature style, but I like to accessorise my outfits with big, beautiful and original jewelleries (like those from Shourouk...) but also with nice bags and beautiful shoes.”
WHO IS YOUR STYLE ICON?
”For me the absolute fashion icon is Leandra Medine from Man Repeller. She has an original style – she creates her own fashion and I love personalities like hers.”
WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE ON EARTH?
”My house in Charentes-Maritime, in the French countryside: a peaceful piece of heaven on earth.”
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD?
”Being Vietnamese, I'm a big fan of Asian soups (especially those made by my mum, the best!) The phô soup is a noodle soup with a delicious broth made with beef or chicken, and if I could I would like to eat some every single day!”
WHAT DID YOU LOOK LIKE IN HIGH SCHOOL?
”The killer question! I did not really have style in high school, I was rather a skater girl, with baggy trousers, skate shoes and mats in my hair. At that time, style didn’t really matter to me!”
WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO LOOK?
”My go-to look is the boyish look, with a suit. A white t-shirt, a well-cut blazer and matching trousers, all combined with nice sneakers. It’s all about nice cuts and beautiful materials!”
For me fashion is a game, there are so many opportunities that it has to be fun!
WHY IS FASHION IMPORTANT?
”Fashion is important because it helps to feel good and pretty, and to feel comfortable in general. For me fashion is a game, there are so many opportunities that it has to be fun!"
IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN HISTORY, WHAT FASHION ERA WOULD YOU LIKE TO LIVE IN?
”If I could go back in history, I would go in the 50s because people at that time were so chic and so elegant. There was a certain poise and etiquette which unfortunately doesn't exist anymore.”
WHAT IS YOUR GUILTY FASHION PLEASURE?
”Luxury bags. Since I make a good living, I buy one twice a year and I carefully keep them at home. I'm a big fan of Gucci right now, their new collection is to die for!”
WHAT DO YOU NEED RIGHT NOW?
”An açai bowl from this restaurant called ‘Season’, I love to have breakfast! But I must say that I love to eat in general...”
