“Never be too sophisticated. Enjoy living life more than being fashionable,” shared Seydoux.
Stylist Camille Seydoux has collaborated with Roger Vivier, to launch the Prismick Denim collection. The idea for the collection of shoes and bags outfitted in pyramid patchwork denim came naturally to Seydoux, who is responsible for the red carpet looks of her bombshell sister, Lea. “Jean, it’s a material you always feel good in. And with the bag, it’s nice because it’s not boring, but it’s a neutral. It goes with so many things, but it’s fun. I hate boring bags, les Hermes me fatiguing!”
I love the ’70s, and I’m a huge fan of Jane Birkin,” Seydoux, clad in Valentino, told Pret-a-Reporter. She based the collection’s aesthetic on a photo of Birkin in patchwork jeans and a white t-shirt. Never mind that the French fashion icon is actually British, but she defined the je ne sais quoi of the decade’s style. “I wanted to do something really fun and effortless, not for the sophisticated Parisian but the more laid-back girl.”
The collection has patchwork cross-body bags and platform heels — a key to keeping it sexy in real Parisian life. “I live in the Marais and it’s all cobblestones, plus I’m a mama,” said Seydoux. “The collection is super-comfortable because it’s a wide heel — you can actually walk in these and go to the shops and chase your kids.”
As for any tips on intrinsic Parisian style? “Never be too sophisticated. Enjoy living life more than being fashionable,” shared Seydoux.
