Hi! It’s nice to meet you! Could you introduce yourself and tell me a few words about yourself?
Hi! My name is Curly Paups ( it is my sur-name). I am 32-year-old and come from Lille (France), I am a graphic designer/webdesigner. I am fascinated of the streetwear/vintage fashion, the Street Art and especially the sneakers. I like being different from others.
I’ve been following you on Instagam for quite a while now. It looks like you love sports shoes. You must have an impressive collection. How many pairs have you got?
At the moment, I do not consider any more my pairs I love them all!
If you were to name 5 favourite pairs, which ones would you choose and why?
Too hard to choose but at the moment I shall say:
- Nike Leather Barrage 1996
- Nike Spiridon Gold on 2016
- Nike Air Max TL on 2005
- Nike Air Max Pink 2005
- Reebok ClubC 85 Naked
I like very much sneakers vintages. I carry(wear) what pleases me, and then I adore mixing of the oldshool with more recent clothes. I like the vintage for several reasons I do not like following an identity.
Apart from a great shoes selection, you’ve also got a cool streetwear style. Which clothes brands are your favourite? Where do you usually shop for clothes, in shops or online?
I like very much the 90S style. My favorite brands: fila, Ellesse, Reebok, Champion the USA… I also like designer brands streetwear as NEIGE, DROLE DE MONSIEUR, BENIBLA and many others. I make essentially my shopping in secondhand clothes shops on Brussels, Paris and small independent shops. But also on Web with signs(brands) rather Englishwomen or Swedes…
You’ve got a lot of followers on Instagram. It’s not a surprise that you are one of the most influential sneakerhead amongst women. Have you thought of starting a blog? Or maybe you’ve got one already
I am essentially instagrameuse but my site is in preparation! With my friend (@ninidokovic) we created a page AMOUR GLOIRE ET SNEAKERS aiming at sharing our passion and at representing the sneakers to the feminine! (You can discover him(it) on instagram and Facebook @amourgloireetsneakers)
You are a graphic designer. Is it your job or just a hobby?
It’s my job and my passion !! I like very much expressing myself through the Art
What does your typical day look like?
My typical day begins by choosing the pair of sneakers that I am going to carry according to my day humor … then I entamme my working day as graphic designer
What do you do outside of work? What do you do in your free time? What are your interests/hobbies?
During my free time I draw and I get organized to make photos in interesting places to feed my instagram. I like very much travelling. I like going to exposures of art, of the sneakers.
I also take advantage to see my friends and party ;)
What would you say to the followers of my page?
To live your dreams and not to dream about them!
Thank you Curly Paups for the interview. It was a pleasure! You need to follow her on Instagram!
