Hello you all! This month I treat you with a second Closet Visit and this one is quite special as it’s a couple one! Indeed, I was more than enthusiastic when Amandine told me than her boyfriend was also really into fashion and would agree to take part in our fashion delirium. So that one sunday morning, they welcomed me to their lovely and graphic world, accompagnied with french Croissants of course!
What do you do in life?
Florian: I am a marketing and communication manager at bonnegueule.fr a menswear fashion blog across which we lately launched our brand based on collaborations with designers.
Amandine: I graduated from a fashion school and create fashion items under the name of “Fabrique Anonyme”.
Do you get inspired or influenced by each other’s style?
A: I have my own style and if Flo doesn’t like something, It won’t prevent me from buying it.
F: We usually ask each other how we find some pieces but we can’t speak about any influence.
A: Actually, If I were a man I would dress like him and that’s maybe a basis of our relationship.
Do you have any fashion prohibitions?
A: At first I was quite reluctant to sneakers and since he wanted some, he bought casual-street shoes which made a kind of transition and now I am more tolerant approach them. There is also this damn coat I hate! Its beige-yellow color is indescribable and goes with absolutely nothing. As a general rule, when I don’t like something neither does he so it’s really convenient.
How would you describe your style?
A: Florian is more chic than street but in a very sophisticated way. We have this passion for prints and texture associations in common.
F: to make a long story short, I could say that Amandine is my feminine version: Very Parisian and elegant (you’ll never see her wearing sneakers).
Who goes shopping the most often?
A: Obviously it’s me! It’s part of my daily routine.
F: Yes, as a matter of fact I don’t need to go shopping since I get most of my clothes thanks to my job! Now if I buy something at full-price it’s either an accessory or because it a piece I really need. But paradoxically I spend much time in stores as I accompany Amandine for her shopping sessions!
Who are your style icons?
F: I don’t have a particular one but I’m truly observer in the street, scan other people’s look and translate their vision into my own style.
A: For my part, Instagram and Pinterest are great sources of inspiration. I also admire Olivia Palermo’s style even if it’s not always easy to copy it in real life.
What’s on top of your wishlist?
A: Hard to mention only one! I fancy for a winter trenchcoat cause it’s a closet staple I don’t own yet.
F: Why not a pair of chunky leather boots!
3 things you couldn’t live without?
A: without hesitation I’ll say Instagram, my beloved boyfriend and great food!
F: Internet of course, my phone and my everything: Amandine.
Where can we follow you?
A: on Instagram and my facebook fanpage.
F: You can find me in a street of Le Sentier in the middle of a shooting session, spending hours on pinterest and on “Bonne Gueule” of course.
I hope you enjoyed this post and that it made you discover new brands and designs. Amandine is currently working on limited edition winter bags so stay tunned if you want to get her hand-made-with-love creations! Furthermore, since Christmas is coming I can only advise you to have a look at Bonne Gueule e-shop to find gift ideas for men!
I didn’t think that a couple living in such armony could exist (and trust me, I know what I’m talking about). Amandine and Flo, you two are truly talented so keep on the good work babes! Bisous.
