Jeanne Damas began her career in fashion as an intern at Jean Paul Gaultier; the designer frequented her parents’ popular brasserie in Paris. The success of her fashion blog on Tumblr propelled her career as a model and influencer, and in 2016 she launched Rouje, a direct-to-consumer fashion brand. Today, Rouje is popular around the world for its take on Parisian style. To commemorate the brand’s fifth anniversary, Damas has published La Vie en Rouje, a scrapbook of sorts that captures the brand’s look, feel, and ethos. Here, she shares her key components to the good life. —Ashley Baker
