What are your go-to spots for shopping in Brussels or elsewhere ?

In Brussels, I like to spend time in second hand shops like T2, Les Petits Riens, Retro Paradise, Episode or in vintage shops such as Gabrielle and Isabelle Bajart.

Abroad, I like Opening Ceremony in New York and Tokyo, Melissa in New York and Topshop in New York and London.

I spend also a lot of time on the Asos website.

What is your statement piece in your closet ?

Shoes, definitely !

What is your latest craze ?

I rarely spend a lot of money on clothes. I prefer to find an affordable but unique piece like the vintage Burberry trench and the Dior little dress I’ve found lately.

If you could work with a designer, who would it be ?

There are so many designers and I still have so much to learn! I really appreciate the work of Muccia Prada for Miu Miu and Olivier Rousteing for Balmain.

What are your fashion must-haves ?

I don’t think I have one, it changes everyday. Today, it’s the traditional Russian scarf for example.

What is your best fashion experience ?

I have more than one. The meeting with Jean-Paul Gaultier for TETU magazine, the shooting for Vogue Italia and the most important ; meeting Paul (Stromae) for the Mosaert project.

Can you tell us what are your fashion inspirations ?

For Mosaert, I was inspired by the work of Maurits Cornelis Escher, the Penrose triangle and Congolese Sappers. The English College style and the dandy look also inspired me a lot too for the capsule collections.

How does it feel to have your capsule collection sold at Colette in Paris ?

Well, this is a beautiful achievement and compliment. It is also an international showcase for the brand.

What inspired you to develop a capsule collection ?

We wanted clothes that both women and men can wear. So, we designed unisex clothes with classic cuts but colorful prints. It gives a perfect combination of British college style and pop African Wax inspired prints. There is no age to wear Mosaert clothes.

What’s up for the future ?

We just started and we are a small team so we keep concentrating on clothes but we are thinking about developing a shoes collection maybe…

Thank you to Coralie Barbier for her time and answers and thank to the Mosaert Team.
