Interview with Lise-Lotte
From Denmark, Lise-Lotte was so fascinated with Paris when she visited in her youth, that she promised herself that she would find any way she could to move to the city. Her job as a diplomat took her to Russia, the US and finally to Paris. Through her role, she became engrossed in the arts and set up a gallery in New York. Her beautiful Parisian home reflects her love for art, filled with fine furniture, conceptual objects and art pieces. We absolutely love Lise-lotte sophisticated style and iconic statement glasses! Discover Lise-Lotte’s curation inspired by her laid-back elegance.
Tell us about a woman who you find beautiful and inspiring? Michelle Obama. Her strength, her determination, her sense of justice. I think this woman represents what we, as women, should aspire to be in our every day life. Women are too often underestimating their power to change the world. Men won’t give us the rights we have, the opportunities to take ownership unless we ask for it. Michelle Obama invites every woman to take ownership of her life, career, and motherhood. You are who you really want to be. You need to want it, you need to be desperate to express your true self.
