Parisian pure juice, as comfortable in a hotel bar the 8th in a boozer Belleville, Marianne and Eleanor Ripp Chedeville are passionate about fashion and zeitgeist. Meeting with two brain fonceuses that rhyme style with envy.
Where does your passion for the trend in general and fashion in particular?
Marianne: My story is no stranger! A grandmother who created in 1950 his own sewing workshop in Paris, at a time when women were rarely independent. Aesthetes parents passionate about painting, design, literature. A Parisian childhood shaped by the colors, mixing, luxury, city lights ... Then I learned how to make this passion a profession, through my studies at the Beaux-Arts and then the French Institute of Fashion followed by hectic years as Purchasing Manager in ready to wear.
Eleanor E: From my legendary curiosity! The trend is a way of observing the world, analyze it, to see it evolve, understand ... a little. Fashion trend in particular is a great window on women and their evolution over time. Fashion, it is also a family sensitivity transmitted from mother to daughter.
Why Coco Montaigne?
Eleanor: To share the mode that we love, one that creates, provides, invented and scrolls but also one that fits our daily lives. Coco Montaigne, this is also an opportunity to offer amateur trend few minutes of happy distractions to find out what our dressing will be done tomorrow ...
Marianne: To talk about fashion differently, offering a perspective on style girls who have spent 30 years! Also to show that fashion feeds culture, it is a lifestyle more than a rat race trends. And that accidents can also be a place! Chez Coco Montaigne, we love everything that is beautiful and rare, but we also allow the beating heart and the faults of taste!
Exactly, that is the style for you? ...
Marianne: The style is anything but a method. Not a total look, not the ostentatious luxury, not the details, not the accumulation of branded items on a single figure. Yes to the gaiety, the finest materials, the right mix of impecs cuts funkisées by designer items. Yes to fancy and eternity!
Eleanor: Style is an expression of our personality, a state of our mood, a reflection of our imagination and our influences. The style is to suggest without saying.
