SUPER HOW MUCH?
Super this, super that: the term is no marketing
ploy but rather an internationally recognized
measure of fibre elasticity. The word “super” refers
to the highest degree of stretch a thread can attain
before breaking, which depends on both its length
Devotees of extra-fine Super 140, a yarn spun
from fibres merely 16.5 microns in diameter (the
market average is about 20), will be elated this season
by a newcomer to our latest collection: Super 160,
a yarn spun from fibres only 15 microns wide! By
comparison, a human hair can measure as much as
100 microns wide!
DESIGNER: Christophe Lemaire, Miu Miu and Bottega Venetta for their gorgeous vegan handbags!
MATERIAL OF CHOICE: Super 160 merino wool all year long!
COLOURS: All shades of blues and beiges, especially the ink and cookie hues.
FAVOURITE PIECE: The MICHÈLE cashmere back-buttoned sweater, such a timeless and feminine piece.
MANICURE: Never! I find it lovely, but between yoga, biking and giving massages, it would wear off in a matter of hours.
SIGNATURE SCENT: Pure geranium and lavender essential oils.

CULT MOVIE: Disney’s Cinderella because she wears what seems to me like the perfect ballet flat, for the mice’s creativity and because you can still find me humming the songs today!
