In­flu­encer Q&A CARO­LINE NÉRON

Elle (Canada) - - Style -

Af­ter years of en­ter­tain­ing au­di­ences as an ac­tress and singer in her na­tive Que­bec, award-win­ning artist Caro­line Néron is de­but­ing her hand­bag col­lec­tion. Néron knows what women want. Her jew­ellery col­lec­tion com­bines el­e­gance with boho in­flu­ences, and on the eve of the brand’s 10th an­niver­sary, Néron is launch­ing her hand­bag line. The exquisitely crafted range fea­tures ev­ery­thing from the per­fect clutch to the ul­ti­mate 9-to-5 tote and is as head-turn­ing as her bold bi­joux. Af­ter all, she says, “Ac­ces­sories are a must to stand out and make your look unique. You don’t want to buy some­thing that no one will no­tice!”

What made you de­cide to launch a hand­bag col­lec­tion?

I love jew­ellery, but I al­ways knew I would even­tu­ally do bags. When I started de­sign­ing the line, it was im­por­tant for it to match my jew­ellery col­lec­tions. You’ll see a lot of the same colours, cool leather, like snake­skin-style tex­tures, and some pieces even have re­mov­able chains that can be worn as neck­laces. But be­yond the style, I also fo­cused on the qual­ity of the leather. I’m re­ally in­spired by Jimmy Choo, Dior, Gucci and Prada, and I feel like I’ve cre­ated bags of a sim­i­lar qual­ity, but at more af­ford­able prices.

What are the must-haves from your fall col­lec­tion?

I’m al­ways wear­ing the “Célèbre” bracelets, which are thin chains with crys­tal clo­sures. You can mix and match them with any­thing. My other must-have is the long “Hollywood“neck­lace in an on-trend grey-green tone. It elon­gates the torso and makes women look thin and tall; it’s re­ally flat­ter­ing. Fi­nally, I never leave home with­out my “Sig­na­ture bag”!

What’s next for you?

We’re plan­ning to open stores in the rest of Canada, the United States, and Europe. I’m also con­tin­u­ing to grow my cur­rent col­lec­tions as well as de­velop other new lines such as eye­wear, dog ac­ces­sories, and home prod­ucts. In­spi­ra­tion is our driv­ing force. The more we take on, the more we get in­spired!
