Victoire Simonney, Stylist and Writer (Paris)

On place

Even though my background is multi-cultural being Parisian is definitely a big part of my identity—I have memories everywhere in the city of growing up here as a kid, teenager… I have been told many times that I’m extremely French, quite possibly as an insult…

On spiritual protection
I always wear the gold chain that belonged to my grandfather with a pendant to ward off evil eye which is a family heirloom. Better safe than sorry! I would never leave the house without it. It makes me feel like the previous generations are watching over me.
