if you were:
so, if i were a colour, it would be marine blue because marine blue is a lot happier than black at the end of the day. it makes everybody always very, very beautiful and it reminds me a little bit of childhood with school uniforms and then it reminds me of the sea at the same time and it’s a little bit mysterious.
i like sandalwood a lot, it’s a woody smell by definition but it’s wood that rubs with a flower and so it’s just that ambiguity that interests me.
so, if i were an accessory, i would love to be a pair of sophisticated shoes and it’s not at all because i am employed by roger vivier, i’m somebody who is free and not at all corporate, as we call it. but a pair of sophisticated shoes are marvellous because you can go anywhere in the world when you have a pair of pretty shoes. clothes can be found everywhere and if there aren’t any shops, you can always borrow a white shirt from a boyfriend, and cinch it with a belt or put a sarong on. so, well, i think that you shouldn’t attach yourself to objects; i think that it isn’t important, even though i have dedicated my life to adding value to objects, but what is essential, even so are beautiful pumps.
if i were a hobby i would love to be idleness. idleness has a bad reputation, people critic it, it’s a bit of laziness, and it’s seen badly a bit: oh, what are you doing? i’m doing nothing. it’s seen badly. but, it is important: it’s essential for balance.
so, if i were a place i would like to be tarascon because tarascon is already a funny word, and then when you say tarascon, it makes you smile, for example: dusseldorf, nobody laughs. and where are you going? to tarascon! to tarascon! that puts you straight away in a good mood.
