Laurianne Melierre, 24 years old, journalist at L’Obs and radio host for the Rinse France radio station. I live in the 10th arrondissement of Paris but I was born in Lyon from a Cameroonian mother and a French father (though I was born and raised in Morocco). Long family story! I have 5 sisters.
I love rappers that are a little bit « freak-ish », often unknown in France – such as MC Bin Laden, an amazing rapper from the favelas in Rio, or lately, Brian Imanuel aka Rich Chigga – a 16 year old kid whom I’m obsessed with, and especially about his new track, Dat $tick. It’s crazy.

M.I.A. She has no equal. But I also have a massive crush on Bill Murray.
It’s the GRAMERCY Black Black Gold. Black Dial, black bracelet, gold case. It looks like a night butterfly that found light in the darkness. I think that it fits me well.
I am somebody who’s always really late. I am incapable to manage my time and plan ahead accurately. This, plus the fact that I am just a generally slow person… But I’m working on it.
My Friend Cleon Grey, in New York, who just launched his own – and excellent – magazine “Sheren”. In it, he explores via incredibly well written texts, the greatest fears and insecurities hidden within human relationships in NYC. We would cruise around the Bronx before heading out to eat Jamaican food.
To the fish market in Tokyo – at 4 am..

It looks like a night butterfly that found light in the darkness. I think that it fits me well.
Buy myself a tailored suit, made sur-mesure.
« They cum, they go » from Tommy Genesis – a song that is as good during the day than during the night.
