Loulou love

The Decembre-Janvier issue of french magazine Atmospheres features one of my style egeries, French designer and YSL muse, Loulou de la Falaise.
In her own words:

'I like cotton, velvet and handmade fabrics such as kilims and blankets from the Atlas mountains. And I also have a weakness for bayadere (colourful striped cloth) - I put it everywhere!'

'My favourite materials are painted or gilded wood, lacquered objects, decorative paintwork and ceramics with a cracked surface.'

'I'm consistent in my tastes. I like bright, multi-hued fabrics and colours.'

'To find inspiration in everything can become automatic if you allow that little machine in your head to work.'

'Seated on my sofa by the enormous window, I dominate the entire space, and the light is magnificent.'

An interview with Mme de la Falaise can be found in Le Figaro. Her shop on 21 Rue Cambon, Paris, a few steps from Chanel (no 29).
