If you look at any pictures of Vincent Cassel and Tina Kunakey, they are always draped all over each other with intense, smouldering eye contact. When I met them in Paris last month their love is just as intense and magnetic, as they slouched into their chairs, draped all over each other. This connection, combined with their Parisian sensibility and innate style, makes them the perfect pair to be a Kouples couple.
There have been hundreds of articles and books decoding French style, but still there remains an unfaltering fascination and mystery. So I had to ask them why they think French style is so captivating and what it means to them. “You said earlier French style is about wearing something that looks nice, but looking like you didn’t do it on purpose,’ Kunakey says. “Yes it’s effortless, it has to look like that. It’s really all about discretion. The French never brag about wealth or like to talk about money. We complain about everything, and are snobs. The mix of all that makes something where you never want to be caught in an act of narcissism. ‘We are above that’ – even though it’s not true. Does it look like I made an effort this morning? No. It’s more about posture and the attitude than the actual clothes I think,” explains Cassel.
