Heiress, goddesses, fashion lionesses, the Courtin-Clarins crew are a divine addition to the elite New York style set. We’ve (quite conspicuously) ogled them on the FROW and been clicks-ahoy on their brilliant Clarins website, Beauty Flash Blog, but until now, the fabulous foursome has remained rather mysterious and aloof. There’s not been a flurry of interviews and haute photoshoots since their grande arrival, despite the high demand. But thanks to the globe’s most persuasive and wonderful wardrobe raider, The Couveteur, we finally have a glimpse into the uber lifestyle of the industry’s best dressed relations – sisters Virginie and Claire, and their super-chic cousins Prisca and Jenna.
Fashionwise, there’s a to-be-expected array of jaw-dropping designer pieces. The girls aren’t shy of a strong look, but with those business minds, we’re certain they’re pretty nifty at investment buying, too. Cue crazy items like MeadhamKirchoff’s fun faux fur chubbies, Louis Vuitton’s disco-ready giraffe print white tux, Altuzarra’s jungle-print jeans and Rodarte’s entrance-making red carpet dresses set against chic life-lasting staples like a Celine tote, silk blouses, their Grandmother’s Hermes Birkin bag and a perfect-fit Alexander McQueen jacket.
Naturally, we’re just as fascinated by their wardrobes as we are by their hair (seriously, so glossy) and the décor. Nosy parkers will notice the girls’ apartment is certainly creative and eclectic. We’re intrigued by the mix of craftwork, modern art, reclaimed driftwood and a vast selection of doggy-inspired accoutrements. So who is your favourite? And what would you love to swipe from their wondrous wardrobes? We bagsy the Rodarte!
