My Latest Inspiration~Laetitia Crahay

I don't know much about Chanel's accessory designer Laetitia Crahay, but I can say that I was very much inspired by her own sense of style when I read about her in my March edition of Marie Claire. She says her style is a cross between Audrey Hepburn and David Bowie and she didn't seem to think that anyone would understand that! I totally get it and I love it:-) I feel that all of us women have Audrey qualities and David qualities. We are very complex. We want to be elegant but we also want to be able to be individuals. If we could just get over ourselves and put on these fun bunny ears we would all feel so much better! Look at how delicate and elegant this piece is and yet they are a bit costumish. That's why I love fashion. It feels as though we all are putting on our own little costume creations every day. It's fun and it makes us feel great. It also is a little escape without actually taking off.

Laetitia Crahay also has a hand in the designs for The Maison Michel, Paris, producers of the most stunning hats for prestigious creative studios ie. Dior, Chanel, Gaultier, Yves Saint Laurent and many more.
