A place you saw when you were a child, and that made its mark on you? Arembepe without a doubt! I claim myself lucky to have been born of a couple of hippies in the 70’swho decided life was elsewhere! And that’s exactly where Arembepe 34 years ago: elsewhere. A small aldea in front of Salvador do Bahia where some people with the same ideals met. For a kid it was dreamland : freedom, beachm turtles, real treehouses,no shoes and a witch … I remember spending hours with her doing all the questions and her all the incredible answering.

The place you love near your home? L’Abbaye de Saint Michel de Frigolet , a walk in la montagnette and you belong to her! Collection Yvon Lambert in Avignon and Arles as a city is unique!

The book on your bedside table, the music in your ipod, the new app you love? Any of the Orson Scott Card’s book do the trick over and over again… Music: Listening lots of “ clavecin” lately.  Apps : Paper 53 is my “marotte”

The children’s brands your cherish?

Having boys isn’t that easy fashion wise… I do classic  Neck and Neck, Monoprix, Cyrillus, Marie Chantal…with some brands I am very fond of but couldn’t do a total look finger in the nose, Bellerose, Fred Perry

The children’s stores you love to visit and buy from? There is not much around me and I must confess I am not really faithful to stores, they usually are one direction and I have trouble with that, so I do most of my shopping on the net.

What do you buy online? Still there is one little store Nuage Avignon in Avignon that has gorgeous tees for boys and wonders for girls!

The last thing you bought for your child and the favourite pieces in his/her wardrobe? We bought him a panama hat for his birthday he wears non stop, and I actually love that hat

A website that inspires you? I must say the Collège de France a never disappointing one and really does the inspiring, entertaining on me!

What are your main current concerns? Clearly education and faith as I strongly believe that education depends on our faith and our ability to communicate it to our kids. Just believing everything is possible makes a huge difference in how you introduce yourself to life and how you manage being now and here at any time…

Do you have a big dream and if so what is it? Peace! But of course that’s an obvious one…I’d love to be able to say I tried hard the whole way.

Something that made you laugh out loudly recently? An amazing little book “Ana-Ana: deluge de chocolat” it had the same effect on Hector, Linus, Iago and Arpad !!!
