Meet Cécile Boccara

We have been admirers of Cécile Boccara and her perfect halos for so long now, a chat and look around her Paris studio (albeit through the magic of email) seems way overdue.

Cécile Boccara Studio Interview

Hi Cécile! Your hairpieces and all of your accessories are so lovely and magical, we were wondering what your workshop looks like?
Our workshop looks like an old attic. It’s actually a notion store in a beautiful 1870 covered market.. a dream for a child, a nightmare for a perfection maniac.

When you were a child did you think you would become an accessory designer?
As a little girl, I knew I wouldn’t be a car mechanic or a piano tuner. I played and worked a lot with my hands, but I didn’t know I could make a lifetime of work out of that passion.

What book, art piece, or person is most inspiring to you right now?
Swing dancing from the movie Hellzapoppin‘, Billy Holiday with the enormous camelias in her hair, Lina Baretti, and the book Grand Oriental Hotels from Cairo to Tokyo.

Thank you Cécile Boccara! À tout à l’heure.
