“I like this photograph by Peter Lindbergh shot for Ruffo in 1997 so much. It makes me think of cool autumn days spent wandering around the city with the person you love, sipping coffee in bars, smoking and cuddling. Even though the photo was shot in the 90s it has a timeless quality. Also, I have a thing for black leather jackets!”

“Mark Borthwick is one of my favorite contemporary photographers. I love the way he captures the most ordinary things in life and makes them beautifully poetic. Be it a naturally imperfect body or a landscape, he manages to go beyond the surface and craft a haunting, delicate dream. This polaroid picture by him reminds me of hot summer days spent by the sea with friends, looking at the horizon with a melting drink in your hand.”

“I love the raw energy of this picture and how Debbie Harry oozes sexiness on stage. She and Kim Gordon inspire me a lot – their dark sensuality and their nonchalant, kick-ass attitude is something that I have always admired and identified with. Yet, when they perform they allow themselves to be vulnerable, and fearless. As Gordon puts it in “Girl in a Band”, “I like being in a weak position, and making it strong.” That is female empowerment to me.”

“Since I am financially independent, I mostly spend my money on traveling. This picture has been taken on my roadtrip to Iceland. It’s the second time I have been there. Discovering new places, cultures and traditions is always impressive to me. For instance, I was shocked when I visited Turkey. You can feel the mix of history, religions, origins that coexist since the byzantine period. Nowadays, people don’t go too far to experience something new. Most parisian people content themselves with “There is a bar which just opened in the cool neighborhood, so new!” and watching a documentary on “discovery channel” before going to bed.”

“This picture is a screenshot from a Japanese horror movie called Hausu, directed by Nobuhiko Obayashi and which came out in 1977. It is the story of 4,5 girl friends who go to one of the girls grandmother’s house and then will be killed. I love this movie because the story is quite dumb, the images are very kitsch and visually strong at the same time, quite comical too. I am quite fascinated by old-school special effects and animation. I like this cheap aesthetics, rough, with grain. I like movies from this period, like Karel Zeman’s Baron Prasil or Vera Chytilova’s movies.”

“This painting is called The Rebirth: the Widower wears a yellow jacket. One of my favorite paintings from the emerging artist Mathieu Bernard Martin. He mostly paints with acrylic on paper and also writes poetry in French. His work is close to expressionism with vivid colors and rough lines. You can see the influence of Bacon, Matisse and Dubuffet. Today, I find it quite rare to find “traditional” painters amongst contemporary artists.  Everything is based on the ideology, the analysis, the concept, blablabla. Some installations with just a piece of paper are exhibited in art galleries. Why don’t we go back to pure paintings like they used to be? Paintings have nothing to prove: they move you.”
