Who is Coucou Suzette ?
Colorful, fun and kitsch creations !
It all started in 2016, thanks to a boob. At a time when women wanted to free the nipple, Juliette created a ring for one of her friends: more precisely a ceramic boob ring, made with love and for fun.
The piece of art is posted on Instagram and surprise! Everyone wants one.
Amazed by the enthusiasm, Juliette starts selling her creations online. She loves creating so much, she quits her 9 to 5 job to go all the way into this new adventure! That’s how Coucou Suzette was born (thank you nipples).
The name of the brand was found very quickly (in two minutes more or less) and it was an instant crush, like every Coucou Suzette creations are. Juliette liked the fun and cheesy sound of it, and Suzette was the name of her beloved kitten.
Years after years, the team became bigger, the brand could launch its own
website, the order picking was delegated to a logistic team (no more order prep in the living room…) and the creations could finally be sold in many shops all around the world.
To respond to the constantly moving market, Juliette decided to turn her drawings into colorful and kitsch accessories: first vintage 90’s pins, then socks with sexy patterns, cool hair claws and clips, and creative jewelries.
Original creations with easy prices, made to add some nice and colorful vibes to your everyday life and to make people smile (cheesy but true). Perfect to pimp any outfit in no time, and a good way to break the ice with your neighbor…
We also made many collabs, always picked with care, such as Naturalia, Sephora, Hema, le Centre Pompidou, Kiehl’s, Bocage or the singers Angèle and Julien Doré.
With over 200K followers on Instagram, the brand had known a few milestones: the Boob Ring and its girl power vibe, the Pregnant Socks (with a belly in the heel), the Eye Phonecase used by Angèle in her video clip, the Woof accessories for some cool matchy-matchy looks with your furball, and the Eye Hair Claw, approved by the Korean star Jennie Ruby Jane from the band Black Pink (Hey Beyoncé, we are waiting for you, it’s your turn now…).
Juliette - Creator of the brand, Artistic Director & Community Manager
The founder of Coucou Suzette: Juliette Mallet, Parisian illustrator who grew up in a family of artists. Mom is a painter and a kid stylist, dad is a musician and little bro makes sculptures.
Juliette studied Illustration at the Arts Déco in Paris (ENSAD) and in Japan, a country she fell in love with. She then studied jewelry at the Ecole Boulle in Paris.
Juliette's world is light and fun - she creates all the collections with great spontaneity, monitors the production and handles the communication of the brand (AD & social media).
She draws what she likes and makes creative accessories out of it.
Her sources of inspiration are comics, and especially the “Tom-Tom et Nana” collection, which Juliette loves and reads again and again. Juliette is also a huge fan of Jacques Demy and adores Peau d' ne’s amazing costumes as well as the Demoiselles de Rochefort’s sense of humor. She also collects plastic colorful flowers, glittery things and spends her free time doing ceramic, garden work, singing at her choir or drawing in the grass with her huge Bernese Mountain Dog, Joya.
