A little interview with one of my all time favorite Tumblr accounts Blanc Pale:
Would you mind introducing yourself?
I am Eve, I live in french countryside, in a really small (yet beautiful) village surrounded by chestnuts trees.I studied art and fashion design, I spent my last year as a student in a great school in Paris and had the chance to work at Sonia Rykiel kidswear studio for a few months. After graduation I started working for a small Hat and accessory brand in Paris.Four years later I became pregnant and we decided to move to a more quiet place. Now my son is two years old, we have embraced our new slow life and I am working on the launch of my own kidswear label Abame.
I have been a big fan of your Tumblr page for a while now. When I start with a new collection your Tumblr page inspires me big time, when did you start with “Blanc pale”? And would also love to know where you get your inspiration from.
I started Blanc Pale during my first year of work, in 2011 I think, I was looking for a platform to collect all the images I found interesting or inspiring. I choose tumblr over pinterset because it makes beautiful infinite pages, it can be like a story to read. It’s funny because I remember very well the first image I reblog, it was a picture of a Rochas ready to wear collection and I still loves it very much. I don’t really “find” inspiration, I literally just tumble over images until I find something beautiful or inspiring.
How do you decide that an image ends up on your Tumblr page?
Usually when I find an image that I like enough I put in in my draft tumblr page. It’s kind of my private collection, then I pick those which fit the aesthetic of the moment, colors, themes etc…
Would love to know what your all time favorite image is.
This is a recent favorite, it’s exactly what I love at the moment:
And what about other Tumblr pages, which ones do you follow and why?
This is an old time favorite, I always find stuff I like: www.anabundanceof.tumblr.com
This one is a new one, it’s different but it makes me dream: www.blueberrymodern.tumblr.com
What about your daily life, how does a perfect day look like to you?
Waking up not too early (which is rare with a two year old), drop my son to daycare and work as much as possible in the morning. Have lunch with my husband, go for a run during nap time, bake a cake with my son and have friends over to enjoy afternoon tea. Then family diner and maybe watch a movie!
And the final question, hope you would like to share what your biggest goal in life is.
Nothing fancy, enjoy life with the ones I love and use my hands to create is basically all I want.
Thank you so much Eve for your time and a little peek into your life and your head.
