She is very discreet but with something strong in her eyes, she looks fragile and sure. Always wearing little ballerina on the set, to be able to jump quickly on the white background to retouch the hair, the makeup if necessary, even the clothes.
She got instinctively what you want, giving you always the little plus that you were hoping but not expecting.
Delphine Courteille born in Normandy but has been raised in the suburb of Paris, she assisted hairdresser in studio or on show. Three women have been a key for her in different world: The well know hairdresser Charlie, the photographer Sarah Moon that gave her, her first solo job in editorial door The New York Times and Odile Gilber that opened for her the door of the fashion show backstage. She is part of the Atelier68, the hair & makeup agency of Odile Gilbert. Some of her clients are Sonia Rykiel, Hermès, Christian Lacroix, Lanvin, Jean-Paul Gautltier, she is working as well for some celebrities like the Sonia Rykiel family, Maggie Cheung or Polnareff.
She worked with the Yohji Yamamoto House for the first time on anY’s catalogue with Max Vadukul, it was in 2006 for our Spring-Summer 2007 collection, shooted a new generation of the musicians in Paris. We worked as well on few Yohji Yamamoto + Noir look book and, this seasonon Coming Soon for the Spring-Summer 2010 look book.
The brief was Jesus & Marie and she did it avoiding the « cliché ». She loves the idea of the accessibility of Coming Soon that make possible to wear Yohji Yamamoto DNA for everyone.
Delphine Courteille had now her own space named Studio 34. She organized around her a team of fashion talent including colorist, makeup artist and manucure. It’s just next to the Yohji Yamamoto rue Cambon shop. Again a connexion…
