Clémence Poésy’s little black book


From Paris to New York, Harry Potter actress and front row regular Clémence Poésy has picked up some top fashion tips during her globetrotting travels and here she reveals her favourite shopping addresses on the planet...


Noir Kennedy, 12-22 Rue de Roi de Sicile, 75004 (noirkennedy.fr)

“They have really cool vintage T-shirts from the Seventies and Eighties. It’s great for bargains and is quite boyish. Which is ideal – I love dressing like a little boy.”

Shakespeare And Company, 37 Rue de la Bûcherie, 75005 (shakespeareandcompany.com)

“Writers can live and help out in this bookshop and there’s always a reading or a concert going on. The owner Sylvia is so generous. She’s like a fairy, and it’s very rare that you meet real fairies.”

Matières à Réflexion, 19 Rue de Poitou, 75003 (matieresareflexion.com)

“I love rings. The pieces here are quite rock’n’roll while also being poetic. The more you grow, the more you go for simple jewellery because you don’t need to hide behind fashion, it’s OK to just be you.”


Fat Faced Cat, 22-24 Camden Passage, N1 (fatfacedcat.com)

“Usually you only find Seventies things in vintage shops but Fat Faced Cat has great Forties and Fifties clothes. They’re pretty and girly, almost like fancy dress.”

New York

Brooklyn Flea Market, 1 Hanson Place, Fort Greene (brooklynflea.com)

“This market is huge. It’s partly housed in an old bank and you can find wonders if you take the time to trawl.”


Made Well, nationwide USA (madewell.com)

“Made Well don’t sell outside of the US and they’re fantastic for simple stuff like good classic shirts. I live in jeans, T-shirts, shirts and sweaters.”

Clémence talks about her new role in Birdsong and working with Eddie Redmayne here...
