I was born in Normandy in 1982. I live in Montmartre. In 2005, I come to Paris to work in fashion, my passion and become press intern for 1.2.3. The same year, I start my studies at the IFM (French Institute for Fashion and Design) and I decide to work for brands that I love and share the values. I start as Visual Merchandiser for Chloé whose pastel colours and evanescent styles inspire me. I discover perfect finishings and sublime details. I realise I also love furniture design while redesign Chloé's showroom. I year after, I go at A.P.C. whose philosophy and brand strategy change my vision of business : anti-marketing, anti-easy, their collections are functional, comfortable and timeless. I work with small budget and enjoy a welcoming family company.
I am a summer hut in the trees, the colours of Bali, the Dorothee Club, the Benetton Barbie dolls, the blue of Santorini, the yellow of the Death Valley, the pink of Tagada strawberries. I dream to be woken up by cicadas, of a paint by H. Craig Hanna, of the pinky cheeks of my babies, to beat my sister at tennis....In my eyes, I see the pictures taken by my grand-father, the long trips in the world, the island of my father & my everyday Paris.

I created lab. in 2010 and design my first collections with A.P.C. surplus fabrics. What inspires me : checks, stripes, colours, beautiful fabrics, soft and comfortable. An everyday decoration, useful and simple. Colours are joyful and soft as a sunshine in the house. I love the idea to do fashion for home, to change the cushions on our sofa as easily as we change our shirt, just to reflect our mood. I draw furniture in a Scandinavian and 50th spirit. Passionate by Charlotte Perriand, Eames, Finn Juhl & Hella Jongerius, I created compact and multifunctional furniture to fit small city apartments.
The Made in France was obvious. I had in mind an internship in a textile factory in Normandy years before and I immediatly tried to reach them to make my collections. Unfortunately, the factory had closed and it strengthened my will to give work to the ones that had "survived".
Four years and two babies later, lab. works with a workshop in Paris and a factory in Cambrai (North of France) that make around 300 items per month for us and I'm very proud of that.
We have open a boutique-apartement in the 9th area of Paris at 10 rue ND de lorette.
