Not too long ago we spent a morning with Louise and Paloma, the girls from the folk-pop group The Dove & The Wolf, and had a drink on the Montorgueil street in Paris. Having studied cinema and architecture, the decided to start their musical project two years ago. Since then they haven’t stopped: they just got back from Woodstock, NY, where they have completed their newest record, they’re about to release their videoclip and vinyl, and this fall they’ll be on tour for 7 weeks alongside Rachel Yamagata. They answered a few of our questions and chose some of their favorite items.
1. What inspires you
L: People and their stories, music, and places.
P: Cities, landscapes, movies, but mostly music.
2. Why did you chose these garments, when would you wear them?
L: I chose them because the cuts are classy, very confortable and the fabrics are super soft. I really love the print of that shirt and I would wear it whether it’s just to go get coffee or to go out to dinner with friends!
P: I could wear that outfit any day. It’s so comfortable I feel like I’m wearing my pjs, but very beautiful and classy pjs, I love that.
3. A book
