What would you expect from Vogue Paris’ editor in-chief Carine Roitfeld? Besides smoking, being skinny and showing some nipples?
A clean cut decorated apartment? I admit I saw her as someone rigorous but not that much! I would’ve guessed a more boho, Parisian-chic apartment with mountains of cigarettes and tons of soft pornography covering the walls. Instead, I was most amazed seeing this almost mathematical space with no more furniture than strictly needed, everything put away, everything closed in an open space signed David Chipperfield. I couldn’t really live in a place this white. I’d feel like in a perpetual dentist visit. But then again, I guess neither does Carine. I wonder how many hours she truly spends in her apartment/week and how many times she changes her furniture/year. What’s your guess?

No one lives there. Its just for show. : )
She probably lives at her desk. It is very neat looking though but too sterile and manish for me.
Actually the French Vogue office looks almost the same.Stark and kinda cold.This is a complete contrast to her reckless media lifestyle.Could she be faking her boho attitude?
I’ve read they even have a townhouse in a chic district so this appartment might just be something handy for the RTW week and magazine PR photos.
Anyway her appartment is certainly a good investment especially with a view of the Tour de Montparnasse and the Sacré Coeur dome.
Weirdly, I came across this article when searching for something else on Carine Roitfeld. I entered the site to see if I could guess whether her apartment was clean, linear and minimal. I guessed right! It is more than expected from someone with her keen eye and sense of style. If the apartment was gaudy and ornamental, I would have assumed it to be a lie. The apartment above is nothing less than a cool, clean, environment in which allows one to see clearly…
