ELISE CHALMIN: YOUNG AT HEART
I’m not fond of hearts. Whether on clothes or jewelry, I find them cheesy and girly. French have a better word for it: “cucul”. French also say “il ne faut jamais dire fontaine: je ne boirai jamais de ton eau (meaning: never say never).
I came across Elise Chalmin work on social media. People might criticize modern platforms all they want, but they are (and will always be) fantastic to discover emerging talents.
The minute her super recognizable tee-shirts with two strategically placed hearts popped up on my screen, I knew she won mine.
