Fashion insider Edouard Schneider has taste. He’s made a career in communications for Swarovski, Sonia Rykiel, Martin Margiela, Louis Vuitton, and now Acne Studios. A Parisian for the past 20 years, Edouard recently found himself moving to what is now his third apartment in the capital, but always in the hip areas of the 3rd and the 10th arrondissements.
At about 1,270 square feet, Edouard shares this two-bedroom, two-bath apartment with his partner, Dan Gotlieb, who is in charge of global celebrities at Cartier. Though stunning now, the place was in a very different state initially, and everything had to be redone. “This was about five years ago and one of the first places I saw,” Edouard explains. “I loved the volume, but it was a showroom and only had a toilet in the entrance. I was afraid of all the work needed, so I kept looking and looking. I finally decided, Why not this one? But it was already sold. It came back on the market, and I ended up redoing everything.”
