Piaget presented it’s new collection ‘Sunlight Journey‘ in their boutique at rue de Paix in Paris. The creations bloom in dazzling colours. Sunlight journey is an escapade punctuated by the path of the sun and the moods it creates, alternating between gentle meanderings, joyful effervescence and dazzling radiance. The collection is echoing the art of living. My favorite stones are the sapphire (like the ring of Princes Diana) and a Ruby. Thank you Piaget for this tour and the absolutely beautiful book about this collection.
Paris Couture Week is there. Sakina presented her first Haute Couture bag collection this week and I was lucky to her assistant and PR manager for the last 6 months. We have worked very hard to make this presentation a succes. The theme of this collection is Amazonian dreams. You can read here more about the presentation and collection. I’ve been also lucky that I’ve seen all her presentation till now since she started. You can see more about her previous collections here: Bridal, Pink dresses, Red dresses and her defilé in Beirut, Lebanon.
One of the great sponsors was Au Pays de la Fleur d’Oranger, a parfum brand from the south of France.
Paris hides some great blossom trees. I love to see how the wind is blowing away the little pink leaves of the flowers. The trees fits perfectly the Parisian architecture like Square Gabriel Pierné. But discovering Parc de Sceaux, is a dream of blossom tree lovers. A garden full of pink trees; so you can already guess that especially many girls are visiting this magical garden to take some nice photos. I love the parc as much as I love the little village which I had to pass by from the train station to the parc. I imagined myself living there, in that quiet, lovely neighborhood with streets smelling like flowers.
When my sisters visited me for the weekend, we were running between rain showers to see the best spots of Paris. Palais Royal is always a lovely place to see because of it’s light architecture and flower garden. This time we were lucky enough to run into a rose garden. It was miraculously empty so it was only the three of us walking in this garden. It were the colours, the smell of the rain, the light and the roses that reminds me of my mother, who would have loved this place too. It also reminds me of this photo; Claude Monet in his garden.
Meet my dear Fabienne! We call her Faby, but I think it’s pretty awesome that she is called fab. So for me she’s Fabulouso, Faby, Fab. I LOVE IT. Our heart is melting while we are walking through Saint Germain, talking about our passion for this city. We scrolled by a little band, La Plance A Dixie, yes the very French one at the corner at Deux Margots. We loved it so much that we both bought an oldschool cd. Yes, I still buy cd’s and I love it to have a collection of memories. Music brings people together. Faby and I had more drinks, more talks and ofcourse, my camera was also invited.
