She’s beautiful, elegant, talented and represents the new rock’n’roll attitude of the 21st century. Delphine Delafon is THE girl of the moment. She’s all over the fashion magazines, you’ve all seen her python handbags, studded or with fringes. It all started in the Paris microcosm. At that time, Delphine reserved her creations for her friends. Today, she has orders flowing in from London, New York and Qatar! And it doesn’t stop there, there are rumors that Delphine is preparing a new concept that can be infinitely developed. While we wait to discover her new project, Delphine opens her home to The Socialite Family.
Delphine, how would you describe your home ?
In my eyes my house is full of charm, this is why I wanted to live there. It is hidden in a small courtyard in the Latin Quarter. On three floors with a small basement which I made my room. I really fell in love with this place. I like being in the countryside, it has tiled floor and exposed beams. My son has space to play outside, he climbs trees and biked in the yard.
Could you speak about your family ?
This house has a very community side. I live with my son and our dog. My brother just left from Asia but he lived with us for a year. And Max, a friend of mine who travels a lot, also shares the house with us. Each has its floor and we all have very different schedules but we always found several times a week for dinner in the kitchen. My mother and my grandmother lived to 100 meters and are often there to see my son. As we are in the ground floor, the house is very accessible.
Do you have a philosophy of life ?
Not really or maybe it is a little difficult to define in a sentence. I am separated from my husband but I try as much as possible to raise my son with love and nice mood. I will apply to have a very good relationship with my ex-husband. The family is sometimes difficult, it takes work to make everything goes as we want. It should get to keep a certain lightness that is healthier I think.
Do you have a favorite place at home ?
I love my room because it’s like being in the south of France in the family home of my grandmother who is lost in the vineyards. There is a place which is very similar to my room. I also love the kitchen because as we are many it is the rallying point, people come here to eat or talk.
