In this episode, Monica and Camille head to Paris’ most famous shopping street to meet Clara Cornet, the creative and buying director for the new Galeries Lafayettes at 60 avenue des Champs Élysée. Clara cut her teeth as a buyer at Opening Ceremony in New York before taking over the new space that has been transformed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels to lure big-spending tourists and trendy Parisians back to the tree-lined avenue. She is responsible for the store’s unique, often exclusive selection of brands and products as well as its intensely modern visual identity and digital content. 


Clara is well-known in the industry for her confient eye, her knack for spotting and nurturing young designers and her ability to always be ahead of the game in an industry forever in search of something new. For example, she was among the first to work with Jacquemus. Now longtime pals, Clara and Simon Porte (Jacquemus) have teamed up again to create Citron, the shop’s foodie destination, a restaurant and cafe boasting Southern French flavours and ingredients that has fast become one of the most Instagrammable destinations in the capital. Your hosts sit down with Clara to discuss how she climbed the fashion ladder to end up in such a coveted role by the age of thirty, what it really takes to be a great buyer, and the highs and lows of opening a physical experience-led concept store in the age of e-comm.
