You know that whole impossibly chic French thing? Clemence is that in spades. Half French, half Persian, born in the south of France and raised in the boomtown of Dubai, Clemence has a deep curiosity and fascination with people—how they live, what they listen to, what they read, what their morning routine looks like. So, naturally, she started Passerbuys, the website with a cult following that takes a look inside the lives of inspiring women around the world and profiles all their favorite things. We turned the camera on her and found out what she reads (Simone de Beauvoir) and what she loves (the Bauhaus movement) while touring her Greenpoint neighborhood in her skinny black Simones and white Maxime tee.
