Self Service-redaktören Claire Thomson-Jonvilles Parisian chic-garderob!
Claire Thomson-Jonville är redaktör på vår favorittidning Self Service och chefredaktör för selfservicemagazine.com. Vi fick en exklusiv titt inuti Claires underbara garderob!
För 10 år sedan flyttade Clair till 8: e arrondissement i Paris med sin make och barn. Vi fick en exklusiv titt inuti denna lysande kvinnas garderob och bad henne att berätta om sina favoriter designers, musiker och syn på stil.
FAVOURITE DESIGNER "I have quite many! I’m obsessed with Vetements, there are so many pieces I want from the last collection. I have an unconditional for love Nicolas Ghesquiere at Louis Vuitton, I go to Anthony Vaccarello if I want something dramatic for the evening - he knows how to make a woman look sexy - and Isabel Marant for everyday wear. JW Anderson at Loewe is a favorite as well."
STYLE "Chic & luxurious essentials."
SIGNATURE UNIFORM "Great boots, APC jeans and a cashmere sweater in grey or beige."
SIGNATURE PARTY LOOK "A tuxedo from Pallas is my safe option for a chic party or dinner. If I want to feel more flirty and go out dancing I wear a black and beige jumpsuit from Veronique Branquinho. Otherwise, I just add a pair of heels and red lipstick to my everyday look and I'm ready for a cool Parisian evening."
FAVOURITE JEANS "APC Butler"
FAVOURITE BAGS "Twist Lock by Louis Vuitton, or Pandora by Givenchy if I'm baby free and need a lot of bag room."
SIGNATURE JEWELLERY "A Louis Vuitton ’G’ pendant, a Repossi Berbere ring, a Jean Dousset wedding ring and a Rolex vintage watch."
FAVOURITE SHOES "I love my Prada boots, they are very comfortable and people always ask me where they're from. They’re very model-off-duty!"
TRAVEL LUGGAGE "Monogramed Keepall bag from Louis Vuitton".
STYLE INSPIRATION "Suzanne Koller, founder of Self Service magazine and now Fashion Editor-in-Chief at Vogue Paris. She has such good taste and vision, I definitely learned a lot working with her at Self Service. I'm also very inspired by the people around me, models, stylists, editors - I definitely absorb a bit of everything."
BEST STYLING ADVICE "Keep it simple and wear what suits you."
CAN’T GET ENOUGH "Grey sweaters, vintage band t-shirts and diamonds!"
MOST WORN ITEM "Definitely my Isabel Marant jumpsuits - in khaki or denim. They are perfect for any occasion, so easy to pull on and I don't have to think about what to wear."
BEST BUY "I love my Mr and Mrs Furs parka, It’s so cozy and cool. I'm actually looking forward to the cold weather so that I can wear it!"
MOST RECENT BUY “It was for my daughter, Georgia - a denim shirt, navy blue tights and a tartan skirt."
NEXT BUY ”I have my eye on some Charlotte Chesnais earrings.”
WHAT WOULD YOU NEVER WEAR "Never say never."
WHAT IS YOUR CLOSET MISSING "I never seem to have the perfect black dress I need."
CLOSET YOU WOULD LIKE TO RAID "Probably Melanie Ward. She was a guest editor for our latest issue of Self Service. I know she has the most amazing archive from Helmut Lang, Balenciaga etc."
BEAUTY "I am very fickle with makeup; I use whatever I come across. I do love the quality and colors from Dior Beauty, they’re very flattering. My skincare is preferably from an organic brand. I make my own body scrub with brown sugar, olive oil and a few drops of lavender oil. It sounds awful but it works so well!"
BEST BEAUTY BUYS "Argan oil from my local pharmacy and coconut oil from my health store."
SIGNATURE SCENT "People always tell me I smell good thanks to my Frédéric Malle Cologne Indélébile.
BEST BEAUTY ADVICE "Drink water. Eat clean food. Do some exercise."
HOW TO GET READY IN FIVE MINUTES "That's easy - I have a small baby so time is a luxury now."
HEALTH "I do Bikram yoga, and I run around looking after my baby."
MUSIC "I love Frank Ocean."
BOOKS "I have a lot of books waiting for me on my bedside table, but Just Kids by Patti Smith was amazing. On my next vacation I have planned to read Kim Gordon’s book."
ARTIST "Robert Mapplethorpe, I am very into photography."
NIGHTLIFE "I’m just getting used to leaving my daughter with a sitter, but I tend to go out during fashion week, otherwise I do quiet dinners with friends."
BEST CITY IN THE WORLD "Paris or London."
BEST STORE IN YOUR CITY "Bonpoint - It’s where I enjoy shopping for my baby, and where I seem to spend most of my time!"
BEST STORE IN THE WORLD "Dover Street Market in London is always inspiring or Le Grande Epicerie in Paris."
INTERIOR "Clean lines, minimalistic, shades of white."
FAVORITE ITEM AT HOME "My bed."
INTERIOR STYLE ADVICE "Dress your home with the same attention you dress yourself!"
HOW TO KEEP YOUR HOME FRESH AND UPDATED "I like to keep things rotating. I change books around, add new lamps or alternate furniture. Flowers always give a fresh feeling and a great candle feels luxurious and cozy. I also like to frame art, it’s one of my favorite weekend activities."
THREE NEXT INTERIOR BUYS "A bookcase, teepee for my baby girl’s room and another Moroccan Berber rug."
DREAM BUY FOR YOUR HOME "Anything from Charlotte Perriand or Prouvé."
