Every week we invite a member of the Linnea Lund community to meet them and hear their views on their personal style. Together, we talk about their relationship to clothes, their closet and how they love to mix and match our iconic cashmere pieces. And, of course, it’s exciting and full of delicacy and love.
Today, Capucine, founder of the Capulette brand, joins us for this week's #MyLinneaLund.
This «colomaniac», as she likes to define herself, loves prints, ikat fabrics and velvet. Three essential components of her style that she likes to put on these creations, including her collection of colorful velvet slippers, beautifully inspired by the transalpine slipper, the friulane. This slipper made in Venice in the 1940s is now at the feet of city women thanks to the talent of Capucine who revisited it.
For Capucine, the softness and the colors make the essence of a comforting and warm brand. Everything we love about Linnea Lund.
Charlotte had her heart set on inviting Capucine, whom she had met some time ago at the Crillon during the The Reunion event. Since then, they have met again for a Swedish breakfast to share their common values of fashion : timeless, colourful pieces made from beautiful fabrics made by the best artisans.
For Capucine, they are in Uzbekistan. It is there that she selects her precious fabrics, before they reach Italy and a small traditional workshop where each shoe is made in the rules of art, especially with these famous soles in recycled bicycle tires. An artisanal and eco-responsible dimension that inevitably seduces us at Linnea Lund.
On a beautiful March day, accompanied by his daughter Alma and dressed in our Edward sweater, Capucine welcomes us, smiling and charming in her shop in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, for a discussion where she tells herself through her wardrobe and the Linnea Lund pieces that she loves.
How would you define your style?
Timeless with beautiful materials that are for me, essential if you want to be elegant. And cashmere is, of course part of it!
What is your favorite color of the Linnea Lund palette?
Oatmeal, Honey and Pearl Grey… Actually I really like all the Linnea Lund colorama. I could totally wear emerald green. I love the colors!
How do you wear Linnea Lund cashmere?
I love putting the Greta and Matilda models in high-waisted jeans. Your socks are a joy to wear. And I occasionally steal my daughter’s Maya collar :)
Which objects do you think represent Sweden?
Passionate about design and furniture, I am interested in Scandinavian design, I like its clean lines and materials. And of course IKEA remains an unconditional ;)
