Franca, CEO of this wonderful little kingdom. I also live for having croissants and coffee in bed.

Who will you be in five years?
I always dream of becoming this powerful, elegant woman dressed in Jil Sander (even at home!) that is on top of everything and laughs too much.

What is the best thing you have ever done?
Go for a master thesis about a practical application of mechanism design. It is extremely theoretical but I helped to improve a project allocation at Imperial College and I just loved the challenge of diving into this ultra complex area of economics and doing something I am really passionate about. And probably start The Trophy.

Something you do every day to make your life better?
Use expensive moisturizer, currently from Verso.

Who is your idol?/ Whom do you admire (personal/ professional)?Screen Shot 2015-01-23 at 13.23.50
Marissa Mayer is pretty badass, my boyfriend for having such devotion and discipline, my old boss for his ability to always stay calm and friendly, no matter what.

What was your dream job as a kid?
Everything. I wanted to be a Doctor, President, a spy, CEO of a really big toy company, a horse trainer, a professional violinist. I always wanted to achieve something, I guess I just didn’t really know in what area yet.

What is your dream job now?
CEO. So nothing changed much.

Where can you work best?
The super quiet area in a good library with lots of other people working silently. That just motivates me. Meetings with Fee happen usually in bed.

Hunting the next skincare miracle, good food, Barolo, working on The Trophy.

Is being addicted good or bad?
You always have to balance things but being obsessed, in general, can be quite enjoyable.

Where do you want to travel next?
I really want to have some relaxing days off this summer, so probably Mykonos or maybe Italy for the pasta.

The perfect outfit?
Acne Loma boots, J Brand jeans, a silk shirt, some jewellery and messy hair.

Instinct or logic?
Instinct. It is usually the logic of your subconsciousness.

Describe your style!
French + clean + power + sometimes a little clochard

What characteristic of others do you value most?
Loyalty, versatility, intelligence, passion. I love how Fee is travelling so much, I don’t know how she does it.Screen Shot 2015-01-23 at 13.26.53

And which do you hate about yourself?
I have this tendency to not let go, of problems, fights and sometimes people. But I am working on it.

Which characteristic of yourself do you like best?
I am pretty passionate about the things I do, the people around me and my life in general.

What is the investment piece you are saving for?
I would not buy anything really expensive unless I was super rich. So maybe a nice APC bag.

Would you rather have great clothes or great food?
Great food. Eating something delicious always makes me happy.

Success, but I am trying to become more Zen.

What is the best career advice you ever got?
Be really friendly and nice to everyone and then do whatever the fuck you want.

What is your definition of success?
Waking up and being happy.

What inspires you?
My friends. Many of them are artists or creatives and very passionate about what they do. Art in general is something I cherish. And probably good thinkers like Niccolo Machiavelli.

What is your biggest trophy?
The Trophy Mag and my Acne boots.
