Des gens cool, des amis rad, des copines qui ont le swag et des êtres étranges rencontrés à New-York…

Francesca Vuillemin from Strasbourg (France), model, is that kind of charismatic people i like.

It was the end of the day, Maison Kitsuné (1170 Broadway, NYC) where she works, was about to close. She wave her hand to say « hi », i switch my brain into « english-speaking-mode » and say « hello », she smile and answered me in french…

Then we start talking for nearly half an hour about travels, modeling, art, physics, astrology and her pink bike.
