Are your daughters growing up and finding their personal fashion style? Do you wonder what to dress them in? It’s possible that the brand Les Coyotes de Paris will appeal to you as much as them! Marie, a Netherlands native and also young mother, has created this brand for girls that starts at age 6 years old and goes up until being a young woman. Les Coyotes de Paris fits the perfect in between niche of offering a solid wardrobe for girls that are no longer “little” girls and are also not yet as “womanly” as their moms. Meet Marie, a talented designer with an eye for beauty and fashion.
Are you a Mom? Yes I’m a mom of twins, a boy and a girl. Born on the 18th of June 2015 ! I have enclosed my favorite photo of them together !
The ups and the downs of being a Mom?
I could never have imagined it would be so life changing…
I have never felt so vulnerable in my life. I became more sentimental since their birth.
We also live more from day to day now, and experience less stress, which is nice.
The most important thing are our children, and that they are happy !
What motivates you? Where do you find your inspiration?
Although I travel less then before, seeing the world is still my biggest inspiration.
Cities, people, cultures, food, architecture, interiors….a never ending story of beautiful things to see !
Why/How did you create Les Coyotes de Paris?
After a long study and talking to friends, I saw there was a gap in the market for dressing teens and young women.
I wanted to create a collection of luxurious classics and iconic pieces for these girls.
You are from the Netherlands. So… why Paris? Where does the name come from?
Maybe in a past life I was French….
Paris has always been my biggest inspiration of all cities. The people, how they dress, live, it’s a true lifestyle. Our brand name tells the imaginary story about the 4th arrondissement in Paris, where girls are running through the streets as fast as ”Coyotes”, the Parisian prairie wolves. The coyote has her own eclectic style and dares to be a dynamic individual. She also has the perfect ”je ne sais quoi” attitude but deep down she knows exactly what she wants ! Ignoring the rules and following her own artistic way…she’s independent and captures the true Parisian spirit.
The brand is a reflection of my own personality I think… I have always been inspired by strong classic pieces, so I was driven by the emotion of creating something really pure.
What is your dream for Les Coyotes de Paris ?
That we can inspire girls all over the world with our LCDP collections.

What is the latest news or events for Les Coyotes de Paris?
What are your must-haves for the entire family (for dad, mom and the kids), whether it be beauty, fashion, accessories, books, websites, magazines, etc.?
The biggest must is, going away for holiday once in a while… You need it, to charge your own and your family’s battery !
Another must-have for me in Amsterdam is “Marleen die kookt” (Marleen is cooking), she makes fresh food every day and delivers at home. Often we don’t have time to cook, but we want to eat good & healthy, so this is the perfect solution for us !
A beauty must-have is the Perricone Face Moisturizer Tint SPF30, a combination of skincare, a light tint and UV-protection in 1, I love it !!
What are some good spots to visit in your hometown for the family? for Moms and or Dads?
Mmm there are many good places…
You have the large “Iamsterdam” sign there and a grass field, when you can play and relax with the kids.
If your kids are big enough, its lovely to rent bikes and bike through the Vondelpark!
Thank you Marie!
