What is your favorite piece of menswear that you own?

NAWAL PLOCOSTE

I am Nawal Plocoste. I’m studying cinema production, I was born and I live in Gonesse, which is 30 minutes away from Paris. 

Who have been some of your style influences?

"When I was a teenager one of my favorite movie was Bend it like Beckham. I really liked how Parminder Nagra and Keira Knightley dressed. So I would sneak into my older brothers’s closets to pick some shorts and hoodies."

Cotton pullover and top.

 

On Alexia Fiasco, Photographer, Art Collective Founder & Social Worker: Cotton tank top. Model's own wide leg pants.

ALEXIA FIASCO

I’m Alexia Fiasco, I’m 31 years old, I’m a photographer and the co-founder of the art collectif Filles de blédards which is a slang for "daughter of immigrant”; and I’m a full time social worker in the north of the Parisian suburbs and it’s what I call home and where I’m from. 

Possessions that make you feel powerful?

"I think the two things I have for years and never change are my platform shoes and my large earring. Anytime I broke one of them I would buy the same kind of again. I definitely used to feel way less powerful without them."

 

MIRIAM BENBAKKAR

I am Mariam, a cis woman, French-Moroccan from a small town, 32 y/o. Home is where I chose to feel right and legit : Marseille since 8 years. 

Who have been some of your style influences?

"I love Melody Ehsani’s work. I could be an L.A. girl I think (I dream!). But I am also
punk and I love Vivienne Westwood since I was reading Nana in the 2000’s."
