Grandmother Amar didn’t plan on starting a new creative project in her eighties but found the opportunity to work with her grandson too exciting to pass up. “I share the same passions and inspirations as Julien, so it made sense for me to help him with the brand”, she says. “Our common influences drive us towards the same ideas.” Julien grew up in Paris with Paulette living next door. As a teenager, he bonded with his grandmother over 1960s music and culture, particularly The Rolling Stones. “Working together is magic”, he says.
