Time to head off to the beautiful city of Avignon for a quick chat with Sophie the manager of our boutique there.

Job at Sessùn ?

I have been the manager at the Sessun boutique in Avignon since March 2011.

How did you discover Sessùn ?

 I first came across the Sessun clothes label when I was managing a multi-brand shop in Avignon called Circle Lady Shop, which stocked Sessun. I was 24 then and instantly became a fan. Some time later, the Circle Lady Shop became a Sessun boutique and so I wanted to stay on!

What are your favourite pieces in the current collection ?

There are several. I love the poppy-red VIDA UTIL jacket, and the little sky-blue TONIC sweatshirt. As for the shoes, I love the FRIDAY style for its slightly retro feel.

What is your favourite place to hang out ?

The Place Crillon especially during the summer. I love the atmosphere and it's so beautiful. I also like the cafe on the Place des Corps Saints. As for music, I always head down to Marseille for concerts!

What’s on your current Ipod playlist ?

José James – “Trouble”

Little dragon – “Shuffle a dream”

The Arcade Fire – “Naive Melody”

Gregory Porter – “Be Good”

Blood Orange – “I’m sorry We lied”

Kero One – “In all the wrong places”

The country you would love to visit ?

If I were taking a long trip I'd head for Australia or Japan or San Francisco or New York or perhaps even French Polynesia. I'd better stop there or the list will be too long!!!

Where do you see yourself in 10 years time ?

That's a difficult one, but maybe to have a more important role within Sessun or perhaps have my own boutique!
