My Linnea Lund: Paul-Henry Bizon

Each week we invite a woman or man from the Linnea Lund community to talk about their relationship to clothing, their wardrobe and how they like to mix and match our signature cashmere pieces. This time, Paul-Henry Bizon, writer, is the #MyLinneaLund man of the week!

Paul-Henry Bizon is a discreet man and his apparent serenity hides a being in love with questioning. He is sometimes worried about the turn the world is taking, which does not prevent him from believing passionately in people. He also likes to observe it to better reinvent it in his novels by shaping rough edges that question our own humanity. Because our future is not all mapped out, it is even meandering and a little tortuous, but also superbly luminous. This glimmer of hope also punctuates his first two novels, both brilliant, and as romantic as they are edifying.

Deforestation, intensive agriculture, disfigured countryside, overexploitation of land, impoverishment of the soil and those who cultivate it... in "La louve", his first novel, Paul-Henry Bizon denounced the brutal changes undergone by the agricultural world. Light and healing emanated from his female characters. Because Paul-Henry loves women, defends their rights, highlights their strengths and turns their flaws into a romantic charm. In "Olympia", his second novel published last September and built around the charismatic and enigmatic figure of Marie-Josée Pérec, the writer this time tackles a rough side of the world of sport, where a form of tyranny, sexism and brutality towards women. Once again uplifting.

But let's return to a little more sweetness and lightness that the writer with whom Charlotte, the founder of Linnea Lund, has been friends for more than a decade is not without. And it is with complicity that they meet in the author's café-HQ, le Café Classique, located a few wingbeats from Montmartre, to tell each other about their lives, the battles that drive them and their relationship to time, to fashion and to the very contrasting landscapes of a Sweden also of beauty
enchanting in spring than brutal in winter.

How would you define your style?
Basic, comfortable and easy. I'm going easy!

What is your favorite color from the Linnea Lund palette?
The Charles Macchiato that I wear today.

What objects do you think represent Sweden?
Swans in the Baltic…. We are not prepared for that, and it is very beautiful.

If I say "cashmere" to you, what do you think of?
To softness, a shell of softness.
