Charlotte - Style & fashion

Bonsoir, my name is Charlotte. My mother, ex-model for Saint-Laurent, is American but I’ve lived in Paris since I was 4 years old. Since my mother was often abroad for fashion shows, my French grandmother, a dressmaker for Chanel, taught me the way to become a real Parisian. Today, I’m a wedding-planner and my husband directs a famous fashion magazine. I don’t have to tell you that I have a front seat at all of the fashion shows and I’ve developed a good general culture about fashion. Although I’m the personal shopper for my friends, my strong points are marriage and elegance.

Comptoir des Cotonniers made its mark in the 90s. Mothers and daughters met up there to put their wardrobes together. It was revelation... a revolution. Transgenerational marketing was born. This was the beginning of the "mother-daughter" campaigns, a simple idea translated into photos by top figures. 

French women take their skincare very seriously. It’s part of our culture, we know beauty and know skincare… so we make it look easy and natural.

Roger Vivier is often remembered for dressing a list of exceptional women.

THE PARISIAN'S IT BAG

The Parisian and her handbag…a love story over the centuries. It can be mini, just enough for a phone and a credit card although very often huge, heavy and an annex to our home. We love it. During a well-filled day, it even turns into a set of matryoshkas, the Balenciaga shopping bag housing a Fendi evening bag and, of course, a makeup bag, not forgetting the shoulder bag for things that have to be found quickly…

Since 1764 Baccarat has written the chapters of its remarkable history in sparkling letters.

His poetic approach to presentations, cinematic campaigns and noted Instagram presence have made him a force to be reckoned with.
