The girls behind the Coucou Collection are true style icons and we had the honour of asking them a few questions. Curious to find out who is behind the fun Belgian brand? Read on!
Tell us something about yourself!
Hi! We’re Isabeaux and Lennie. True soulmates, although our friendship started very unexpectedly. We understand each other very well and are always on the same wavelength. Both very enthusiastic and go-getters at heart. When we go for something, we give it our all. And Coucou was no exception.
What should every woman have in her beach bag?
A good pair of sunglasses!
What is your favourite piece from your collection to go to the beach?
Definitely, the Coucou surfer tee! A T-shirt with a unique print and vintage wash. Specially designed for Coucou. Perfect beach combo = Coucou surfer tee + Denim shorts!
What is your favourite water sport?
We like to watch the surfers… ;-)
Could you say of yourself that you are a surf chick?
We'd love to be! But unfortunately we haven't done it enough yet.
What is in your opinion the most beautiful beach you have been to?
What cocktail would you order if we went for a drink at a beach bar together?
Are your pieces sustainable?
We often work with leftovers of fabric and from this year on we are working with fully recyclable packaging. We try to apply this as much as possible.
