City Summer Edit
A Conversation with CO Founder and Creative Director Stephanie Danan.
For CO creative director Stephanie Danan, the city of Paris is integral to who she is. Born in Morocco and raised in Montréal, the entrepreneur, designer, and mother now divides her time between LA and Europe—namely, Saint-Germain-des-Prés in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, France. We spoke with Stephanie about living and working in Paris, how the city inspires her designs, and the way that dressing for two different cities shapes her vision of CO’s elegant, adaptable ethos.
Can you pinpoint key differences between dressing for LA versus dressing for Paris?
Would you say you have a Paris uniform?
“Every woman has their own version of a uniform.”
And it’s not a lot to pack, either.
How does dressing for summer translate to LA?
Does your Moroccan background inform your sense of design/your approach to heat?
What are your days in Paris like?
What is it like balancing life and work in two different parts of the world?
“I love seeing a friend spontaneously. There is an openness to living like that.”
