Madame Dupagne

Odile Dupagne is a very french name, and Madame is very french. Make no mistake about that. The fact that she decamped to England a few years back did nothing to distract from her inborn Parisienne Chic. Together with her French savoir faire and a touch of modern British classic and you have pinpointed her style.

Madame Dupagne and I became acquainted about 15 years ago when she became a client at LINDA WRIGHT, my first boutique in Paris. Luckily for me, she followed when I sold that shop and bought CRIMSON. I would go so far as to say we have a “natural complicity” that over rides our roles of shop owner/client. I have loved her visits over the years. Odile is always interested in what is going on for the season, and has the talent of choosing just the right pieces for her own personal style.

She has a “fresh air” type of look. That may sound strange, but you probably know someone whose skin always looks like they have just enjoyed a walk in the fresh air. She had that look before living in the english countryside, so they cannot take credit!!! She belongs to France!!!

Odile, hop on that Eurostar and pay us a visit………We miss you and your contagious laugh.
