The word from La founder: Anne-Sophie may be the shine maker but she is mostly a sunshine by herself. I have met Anne-Sophie at a classic Parisian in-house « apéro ». We instantly clicked, pure girl crush. Same humor, same obsessions, same interests. Spontaneous sisterhood at its best. Anne-Sophie embodies the very epitome of the real Parisian girl for me. She did not grow up in Paris, she works hard and is dedicated to her job, she is independent. She loves real food with pork and fat in it and she works at Vogue. She has style no matter when or where, effortless. She can binge watch Netflix on a Friday night and party until late on her heels the day after, unapologetically, always with humor and wits.
