Blanchet too is incredibly modern in a way that only French women can be. ‘I’d describe my style as Parisian, not French,’ she smiles. ‘I wear a piece of vintage pretty much every day, but for me it’s not a full look – I never want to look retro. My style is a mix of vintage, some pieces that I love from the past few seasons, and then current pieces. I’m a real Parisian in my style.’ From her glossy dark hair and no-make-up freckles, to the simple cotton dress she teams with covetable accessories, Blanchet is natural and effortless. Her calm and affable demeanour belies a laser eye for detail
that she brings to every area of her very varied remit.
