While checking out our styles 0010 Coat Light and 0100 Coat Kimo, we talk about her tastes in life, work and style.
And we discover how she feels in our stuff!
Coralie, what makes you tick in life, what is your passion?
Coralie: 'What fuels me most in life are connections. With other people, with the world around me, with myself. As a graphic & motion designer I believe communication is key to everything. I love to help tell stories in a well designed way, whether it’s for a video, an illustration or a logo animation. My choice to join the firma co-working space was a no-brainer. Being an extraverted freelancer I wanted to find a network of like minded entrepreneurs to share ideas with, help each other out and to have a nice day-to-day environment to work in and I got so much more than that! Best decision of the year. :) '
And Brussels, how is your relationship with the city?
Coralie: 'Moving to Brussels was a split second decision, and quite frankly, one I never considered before. I’m a big advocate for listening to your gut feeling and that’s exactly what I did. After having spent a couple of years in Stockholm, Sweden, I was hungry for realness, excitement and diversity. For me, Brussels has all of that and more. It’s the first place I felt truly at home. The city is very eclectic on so many levels, there is almost no norm, which is something I find very inspiring. It’s not a city to love at first sight, but if you’re willing to dive in, it’s bound to get interesting.'
We love how you pose in our styles! Can you tell us how you feel in these pieces?
Coralie (on style 0100 Coat Kimo): 'Finding an elegant winter coat has always been a struggle for me. Since I’m not super tall, long coats are often a problem, however I felt so elegant in this black coat. The sleeves add such an elegant touch to it. Winter jackets were never my favourite but this one honestly seems like a feast to wear. I love elegant pieces but I love comfort more and luckily, this one delivers on both.'
Coralie (on style 0010 Coat Light): 'This jacket is something that totally reflects who I am. I’m not a trendy shopper, I love pieces that are minimal and unisex, that I can wear with many outfits and that can add some power to my day.'
