Anne-Fleur, how would you describe yourself?
I’m the mother of Joseph, who’s 4 years old, Zacharie, who’s 2 years old and one of the founders of Roseanna. I’m a Parisian from the 10th arrondissement, but originally from Lille.
What brief did you give the architect Stéphanie Lizée for your apartment?
We wanted an apartment that reflects our personalities. Stéphanie is part of the family, she knows us so well that the question of a brief wasn’t really necessary. If I had to put what we were expecting into words, I’d say warm, practical and punctuated by a timeless classic style.
How would you define your style in terms of interior design?
Eclecticism defines our home, we only work on the basis of love at first sight.
Which is your favourite material in your home?
Which piece of furniture would feature in your dreams?
A Mario Bellini velvet sofa, the Camaleonda (1971) model or a Tobia Scarpa sofa.
Do you have a preferred designer or time period?
Modernism. I’m mad about John Lautner, Albert Frey, Alexander Girard, Oscar Niemeyer, Gio Ponti, Le Corbusier, Mallet Stevens, Charlotte Perriand and Marcel Breuer.
Where do you find the inspiration for your collections and prints?
Inspiration is everywhere in the life around me. We have an extensive library at home. I love sharing books with my sons and rediscovering them myself, always with a different eye. I adore those moments with them. More generally, in a recurrent way, I try to live and grow in the middle of a world that is ever more inspirational: music, scenography, exhibitions or an old fabric. In particular, I’m thinking of Days are Dogs at the Palais de Tokyo that thrilled me with the complexity of its decoupage of worlds. The simple fact of putting oneself in a certain situation can also be a trigger, through a conversation or a film.
How would you describe the Roseanna woman?
A woman who’s free and individual, who’s confident in her choices, anchored in her time. A woman who has an innate sense of detail and difference, who likes beautiful materials, whose style ranges from the ultra-feminine to an assertive masculinity. I see Roseanna as a way of life, a complete wardrobe that is there whatever the occasion.
Which is your colour of the moment, the one for next summer?
I like bright bold colours. The colour of the moment is mauve. This colour is really an obsession at the moment!
Tell us about the capsule collection that unites The Socialite Family and Roseanna from 26 September to 8 November.
Do you have a good restaurant to recommend, in Paris or elsewhere?
