In Her Shoes: Chloé Harrouche

The epitome of style and definition of chic, Chloe Harrouche needs little introduction. A modern woman, Chloe is a street style icon, digital influencer and content creator, fashion consultant and leading force behind Lou Lou De Saison, all whilst being a mother.

When it comes to style, Chloe is known for ability to pair laid-back relaxed pieces with boyish tailoring and suiting to create a look that only a Parisian could. Leading the fashion world, it was no surprise that we looked to Chloe as a style muse, collaborating with her in Paris for our NET-A-PORTER exclusive Sportsu Espadrille.
Pairing her incomparable styling with the photography talents of Dan Roberts, we captured this unforgettable campaign in the fashion capital of the world within the historical corridors of Palais Royal. Naturally, we wanted to speak with Chloe about her life, her wardrobe, motherhood and her hopes for the future of fashion. 

Can you describe a day in your life?
A very busy day as I manage 2 companies and I’m a mother of two, it looks like an organised mess. 

Items in your wardrobe that are a must living in Paris?
A crispy white shirt, a Loulou Studio cashmere sweater, a black blazer.

What influences your style for both your personal style and home / lifestyle?
I take inspirations from all I see around me, it’s all about architecture, art, travels… 
Being a mum of two, how do you balance life between being the fashion world and family?
For me, it is very important to always cut during the weekends and holidays. When I spend time with my kids, I’m dedicated to them, I take time to play with them, I put my phone aside and I focus on them. 

What are your thoughts on the future of our industry? What do you see changing and what excites you most about this?
Sustainability in fashion is now necessary. I think all the brands now have to change the way they produce and the material they use. I am so proud to represent the collaboration between St Agni and Net A Porter as all the shoes you design are in the Net Sustain process. 

How would you style St.Agni pieces and what is your favourite head to toe look?
It depends on my mood, I can go to a total St Agni white shirt with a pair of jeans, something very minimal and Parisian or twist a St Agni summer dress with a strong fashion piece such as Bottega Veneta shoes.

Who is your style muse? 
I take inspiration from all women around me but I have to say that my style muses are Jackie Kenendy, Lee Radziwill and Audrey Hepburn.  

Best meal in Paris? Best coffee? Favourite place for a wine?
I’m not really the best person for recommendations as I’m always doing the same thing. This is so cliché but I love to go to the Café de Flore for a coffee on the corner of my house, I also love to go to dinner tat Restaurant le Voltaire.  

What is it that you love most about working in Fashion?
You have to constantly renew yourself, I love the creativity of people and that there is no routine in this business.

If you could give your younger self any advice based on everything you know now, what would it be?
Trust yourself and your instinct, the feelings never lie.
