If I had to choose one 1960’s Icon, it would without any hesitation be Françoise Hardy. During the yéyé (yeah-yeah) movement that happened in France during the ’60s F. Hardy was one strong personality who’ve gone against the flow.
What is yéyé?
Yéyé was a pop music style. It was mostly English songs adapted in French. It was very kind, colourful, and a bit naive way. Just as naive as the look of the often very young singers, the yéyé girls. Sylvie Vartan, Sheila and France Gall, are some of the most famous names of this movement. And Françoise Hardy was the wildest of them all.
She was (and still is) rock’n’roll, quite dramatic, a strong personality but foremost very wise. Something in her eye is touching me, she has a very particular way to see and describe the world we live in and the other worlds that could exist. She talks a lot about the influence of energies, and can sometimes be describe as the crazy old lady. It is this craziness in a very elegant body that I like the most.
But there is no doubt about the fact that, she is a fashion Icon. I feel pretty influenced by the straight lines, strong pieces and soberness that made her look. She often combined flared trousers, statement Sunglasses and please do not forget her iconic bangs! The A-Line wool dress I’m wearing for this set, remind me of some of the mini sweater dresses, she also used to wear.

We Shot in:
We shot in a beautiful Glass House surrounded by an amazing vegetation, populated by the most charming Parakeet and other exotic Birds. It’s my loved one who took me at the Stadt Gärtnerei , Zürich for the first time, a few months ago. I had no idea this place existed. He knows how much I love plants, cactus and old gardens. He made me a big favour that day and I wanted to share this with Madison. We found it to be a perfect place to shoot in.
