THE CAPITAL ACCORDING TO ... Marine Tanguy

Where have you been living during the lockdown?

I’ve been in London with my family, but we’re very fortunate—we’ve got a lovely home. We moved a few weeks before lockdown and the house came with the keys to Portman Square. It’s a very privileged set up.

You grew up on Île de Ré, off the west coast of France. What was that like?

It was the nicest way to grow up. I was always barefoot, running by the sea. Weirdly, there’s generally only one shop in the winter that’s open. This confinement is what I knew for 17 years in my downtime on that island.

When and why did you move to London?

I moved here when I was 19. I was told that if you study philosophy and history of art in France, you were likely to end up being a professor, but I wanted to be more active in the world of business and culture. I also left the island because I love learning from different people. That’s the biggest thing I get from London—it’s more diverse.
