I am happy to announce that we are starting a new section on Currently Wearing!
The Coup de Coeur!
Why Coup de Coeur (= Love at First Sight)? Because it will be dedicated to up-and-coming fashion designers and creative minds based in Switzerland who caught my attention.
I get inspired by people who are original, unique and follow their own path. It also helps if they are kind and down-to-earth. I am grateful for having the chance to meet many interesting people and I think that it would be a shame to keep their visions and contribution to myself.
Thus, Coup de Coeur will be about giving back, sharing and bringing something positive into your lives.

Our first interview is with Céline Bolliger, designer behind the brand Audacy.
When and where did you start your brand?
I established my label in Lavigny, Switzerland, in 2013.
Describe your brand in three words:
Simple, minimalist and timeless.
What makes your designs unique?
They highlight the charisma and personality of every woman. When you meet a lady who is wearing one of my designs, you wonder what makes her so special. Is it her look, her style, the way she moves? You contemplate about her not only about the clothes that she is wearing.
What materials do you work with and why?
I prefer natural fabrics like cotton and silk. They are more comfortable and practical than synthetic materials.
Who is your biggest inspiration and why?
The whole world. It never ceases to inspire me.
Which famous designer would you like to meet in person and why?
Coco Chanel, because she changed the world of fashion.
Where do you see your brand in 5 years?
I care about our planet and I am proud that Audacy is a socially responsible company. I believe that the next challenge is to be also environmentally friendly.
Where do you like to shop?
I like to shop abroad and discover shops I did not know before.
In one word:
Sweet or salty? Sweet.
City or country? City.
Coffee or tea? Tea.
Book or TV? Book.
Night in or night out? Night in (with family and friends).
