Capucine

1 month ago by

Partial to boyish trousers and feminine minis, and somehow, quite mysteriously, surviving without a handbag – Capucine Safyurtlu is the actualization of effortless chic. She recently became the creative director for Stella Luna, a brand founded on craftsmanship and comfort for all! Happy for you to meet the Paris native who is both stylish and gracious, Capucine…

Describe your style in three words:
Joyfully feminine, classic first and foremost, spontaneous.

What is your ideal outfit to wear everyday, your uniform?
I almost always keep it easy, concentrating on just the essentials. You’ll usually find me in my favorite pair of worn jeans or simple pants, paired with an equally pared-down classic top: a crew-neck sweater and/or button-down shirt and perhaps finished off with a riff on the classic blazer. But the shoes are key. The truth is, my shoe choice is usually the first one I make that day — guiding all subsequent outfit choices. It is never the final accessory for me.

You don’t wear a purse, ever! What’s your trick for getting on without a bag?
I just want to carry with me what’s absolutely necessary: my phone!

How did your fashion stylist job influence your work currently at Stella Luna?
Working as an editor helped train my eye and be selective. Over the years, I learned to recognize and concentrate on the important story, to edit down and focus on what is necessary (never veering far from the key theme.) I was also able to realize what was lacking in the market, season after season—a training that I find is definitely helping me today as I work on creating a selection of the kind of offerings that I had always wished were available in the market.
