My turn.


Marijs took a trip to Paris just last weekend, and this week, it was my turn. Tuesday, my mom and I went to a fair for Lily and the Lady and on wednesday we went strolling around the city to get inspired. We had a very nice time, something to recover from the busy end of season sale and prepare for our new collections. Here are some of the things we did:

Sleeping at Hôtel Jules et Jim

This hotel has been open for a month and I can only say: beautiful rooms, impeccable service. Oh, and best beds ever!

11 rue des Gravilliers
75003 Paris.

Yummy dinner at Le Taxi Jaune

13 Rue Chapon
75003 Paris

Shopping at Merci

111 Boulevard Beaumarchais
75003 Paris

Checking out a brand spanking new Ra Paris

Ra 13′s little brother turned out to be a beautiful retail space with unique pieces (much like the one in Antwerp). I just loved the boudoir feeling of the place. But you know how I feel, you can take me back to the 1920s anytime.
