Garance Doré Interviewed on Jay-Z’s New Web Site
Jay-Z, a longtime fashion heavy hitter, has just launched a lifestyle Web site, Life + Times, which covers everything from sports to music to style—and one particularly insidery figure has already made her début on the site: illustrator, blogger, street-style photographer, and very public Sartorialist girlfriend Garance Doré.
In the short interview, we’re introduced to Doré’s clothing go-to (Repetto ballet flats), the first designer who made her fall in love with fashion (Yves Saint Laurent), and the method to her street snapping: “It’s a certain connection to a person or a place,” she says.
A few more fashionable tidbits:
L+T: Which three people would write, design and narrate the book of your life?
GD: Woody Allen would write it, Dries Van Noten would design it, and Anjelica Huston would narrate it.
L+T: What’s the most fashionable place you’ve ever been?
GD: Anna Dello Russo’s closet.
L+T: Who are three artists in your iPod that you’ll never take out?
GD: Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg, Destiny’s Child.
We might not have pegged Doré as a Destiny’s Child fan—wonder if the online publication’s patron has anything to do with that answer?
