Tell us a little bit about yourself...
Hi Spell family, I’m Claudia! I’m a 26 year old French Content Creator based in Paris, France! I work freelance as a video creator for some of my favourite fashion brands!
Who and what inspires your sense of fashion?
It might sound cliché, but Paris actually inspires me a lot... Since I moved here 3 years ago, my style has completely changed and I have to say that I love the way that Paris has influenced me. I’ve had the confidence to step out of my comfort zone and try new styles that I wouldn’t have worn before. The way that people dress in Paris is so inspirational, there is definitely a reason that Paris is the capital for fashion today! However, I also get a lot of my ideas from Pinterest, it’s where I find most of my daily fashion inspiration… My style icons look no further than Gilda Ambrosio and Bella Hadid, my ultimate girl crushes!
Tell us your top three favourite accessories that never fail to elevate an outfit…
You can never go wrong with a pair of stylish sunglasses, a cool bag and fun socks to elevate an outfit. These are my go-to accessories to spice up any look.
What was your favourite outfit that we shot on our content day in Paris and why?
This is such a hard question, but I would have to say the Miami Strapless Romper! I feel that this outfit was made for me… I absolutely loved the fit and how comfy it was!
What current trends are you absolutely loving?
There’s quite a lot honestly. But I'm obsessed with Y2k style, the biker fashion trend, and 90’s Minimalism.
Where is your hometown and how are you liking the move to Paris, the city of love?
I’m from Nice, in the South of France but I feel incredibly grateful to have been living in Paris for the last 3 years now (thanks to my mama who helped me to realise my dream)! It’s not only because it’s the city of fashion and the city of love, it’s also because it’s a city that teaches you to fight and to create your own version of yourself. And honestly I knew that I was meant to live in a city like that. I always have and always will believe that all the choices that you make lead you somewhere for a reason and thanks to that you meet the right people at the right time.
Tell us your favourite way to style a Spell piece...
My favorite way to style a Spell piece is to mix its beautiful florals with my fave rock ‘n roll pieces! Adding hats, chunky boots or cool loafers with a nice pair of socks help to make the look more edgy and styled for the city.
What playlist are you currently listening to on repeat?
I’m a BIG fan of the JAIMETOUTCHEZTOI playlist on Spotify, you have to check it out!
But I have to confess that i can’t stop listening to this track at the moment - Soweto by Victony, Tempoe.
What would be your top tip or must-see for anyone visiting Paris?
I would definitely recommend booking any activities or restaurants in advance. It's crazy how busy it can get so you have to be well organised if you want to do certain things or eat at specific restaurants.
