Marc for ever

The Louis Vuitton showroom was nimbed with the bright and cold winter sun, giving the light pink walls and exposed pieces a cinematographic touch.
The studded wedge sandals were sparkling

The burgundy striped knitted culotte (one of the most to die for pieces I've ever seen) was twinkling

And the three-pieces black suede boots sunbathing

There were fresh strawberries and Ladurée macarons on a glass table. The whole set had the pastel, romantic look of a Sofia Coppola movie.

And that was no coincidence. Exposed on a pyramid of monogrammed boxes, Sofia's creation for Louis Vuitton enjoyed the good weather. Her interpretation of the summer sandal
and re-thiking of the hit Speedy bag...

How lovely.


How is it possible to find in the same body the quintessence of feminity and this unsettling, attracting masculine sensuality ?

Proenza couleur

How do New-York designers Proenza Schouler manage to produce a fashion that can be minimalist, yet dramatic, extremely sleek, yet so edgy ?
I got a sneak peak of their pre-fall collection yesterday, in their Paris showroom, and it is genius.
Especially the accessories. I fell in love with those studded boots, and found out that super hot shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti (he also makes Balmain shoes) was the one who produced all this beauty for Proenza.
Also spotted : studded flat sandals and double-buckle low boots. And this blue python bag

But the real surprise is this crazy crazy dress. Could you believe this leather effect is actually broidery ?

Just guess

Who do you think those skinny and stylish legs belong to ? I'll give you a hint : I took these pictures at the exit of the couture Chanel show yesterday.

Mystery Woman

I am always intrigued when I pass by these big black and white pictures, stuck on a wall in le Marais. I love her awkwardness. I love the little details, the white flowers in her hair, the tartan handbag. Who is this woman? When were those pictures taken? Where is she going ?
