A day with a Monographie girl - Camille Seta

After studying Law at Assas, Camille Seta specialized in business law. Graduated from the Paris Bar School and the prestigious New York University, she became an active woman living in the fast lane, juggling between her work as a lawyer in a US law firm, her family and her personal life.


MORNING  I jump out of the bed at 7:15am and hurry up to get myself ready so I have time to share a nice and healthy breakfast with my husband and my two sons, Anatole, 3 years old and Georges, 1 year old. Despite a very busy job, I try to spend as much time as possible with my 2 children. If I don’t have a meeting or a court hearing, I drop off my eldest son at school. Then, an intense morning follows: clients’ meetings, negotiations with counsels and sometimes hearings at the courthouse. 

For lunch, I often take my clients to one of my favorite spots near the law firm: Le Mermoz, Kiomyzu or Le Valois. But if I don’t have anything planned, I work out with a personal trainer at the office gym or simply eat a salad at my desk to get a lot of work done and be able to go home early to see my kids. »

 

AFTERNOON  After this brief break, the afternoons are as busy as the mornings. I am always on the move, the workflow never stops. I very often wear Monographie shirts at the office. I have a full collection of them, I might own over fifteen of them! Being a lawyer requires a specific dress code ; I cannot be too casual and must remain formal in my outfits. Thanks to Monographie, I respect the codes while having the twist that makes all the difference. Elegant but not ordinary. In fact, whether they are clients or colleagues, I am always asked where my shirt comes from ! 

 

NIGHT  Even though I have big cases going on, I try to be back home early enough to see my sons and put them in bed. These moments are crucial and precious. We often go out with friends at the theatre ; Les Fourberies de Scapin at the Comédie Française with Benjamin Lavherne was genius ! Otherwise, we have dinner just around the corner at Café de l’Alma or on the terrace of Le Petit Varenne. But I have to confess that the best evenings remain the ones on my couch watching one of my favourite TV shows like Handmaid’s Tale, Scandal or Suits…I am totally addicted ! »

 

MY FAVOURITES ADDRESSES IN PARIS  For shopping : the new Galeries Lafayettes Champs Elysées for their selection of up-and-coming designers. For beauty, I have recently discovered the organic brand Paï. I love all of their products, especially the avocado day cream. I also go to Joëlle Ciocco once every two months for their amazing facials. My favourite week-end getaway : The Gritti Hotel in Venice.
