Above, Tim Groen: Selima Salaun, New York, 2010
“Look how amazing!” Selima says in her delicious French accent, as she shows me a complimentary write-up about herself in a recent Luxottica brochure. Judging by how happy she is about the kind words in a corporate booklet, you’d never guess that this is the seasoned eyewear designer who receives more editorial than anyone can keep up with, who is the owner of multiple boutiques in New York and a shop in Paris, as well as a thriving business in Japan. And with whom just about every other fashion designer wants to collaborate. From Erin Fetherston to J. Crew, from Tim Hamilton to Proenza Schoeller, from Catherine Malandrino to Jack Spade, Adam Kimmel, Duckie Brown, and Simon Spurr.
