Paris we Love
We've just finished launching and selling the A/W10-11 collection in Paris.
What an inspirational week fueled with picture perfect parties, gorgeous new collections and new found loves.
We presented out new collection with RMO in the marais who were also showcasing Sykes London, Lara Bohinc shoes, Markus Lufter, Julian Macdonald, Richard Nicolls, Roksanda and Clements Ribeiro (which I am so pleased to see of their return - i have always been an avid fan)
Jo Sykes new collection is on top of my list for must have lux staples, such beautiful fabrics you want to live in them!
Clement Ribeiro A/W10-11
I love the "one off" vintage silk scarf dresses and the cashmere embellished knits.
We had dinner with the Browns team the Le Derriere- a secret trendy spot for les parisiennes. You walk in to see a cool well heeled bunch but in a relaxed setting with tables surrounding a ping pong table. There's a spiral staircase with magazines scattered on the edges ( incase you want to brush up on Vogue's 90's A/W's boots ) which takes you to a large dining room to your right and a mirrored wardrobe to your left, I was advised to walk straight through it to get my nicotine hit... "really?" surely enough it was somewhat fantastical- you go through the lion, the witch and the wardrobe to an eclectic smoking attic - which is yet to be cleaned out!
The food was mediterranean/ french - delicious. A great place after a long day to kick back and get re-energized.

I have just given you a quick run through or I will be here for days but on a final note my new treasured scent..
UNTITLED by Maison Martin Margiela: it's fresh, young, green then subtly complex with a soft finish. AMAZING- ( I had to battle through the queues at Colette to get a bottle )
ps. did I forget to mention that Russell Brand was wearing a BEX ROX at the grammys?
