North to North. After a providential journey to the desert with her sister, Laurence moved from Belgium to Morocco. In her works, eyes, hands and smiles live on. Pink, Majorelle blue, saffron yellow, earth brown. LRNCE outlines her creative mind, which shows through her collections, handmade with the cooperation of local artisans.

If you could close your eyes and be somewhere else, where would you want to be?

Having a bubble tea in Japan

The restaurant where you feel at home.

I love Gaztelur in Biarritz, the food is amazing and the place is so beautiful!

A hotel room that makes you nostalgic.

In Capetown, I stayed once in Cape Heritage Hotel, very charming hotel room and I loved the area!

A travel you could do over and over again without getting bored. 

India, so much to discover and If I think about it I get very nostalgic, it’s a place so mysterious and very attractive to me, I would love to stay for a long time.

A dish that recently surprised you.

Ceviche, I discovered Peruvian food and I love it.

A holiday place from your childhood.

L’Ardèche in France, I have the best memories. Good food, fields with sunflowers and lavender.

If a kid asked you to take him/her on a trip, where would that be?

If you could choose a dream place to celebrate (birthday, wedding…) what would that be?

I’m getting married in 3 weeks in Marrakech, a dream coming true!

A view you will never forget.
