Inside the Jewellery Collection of a Parisian Chic Girl!

jewellery collection parisian chicDeveloping the right jewellery collection requires skills. And no one is better at this than my friend MA, a notable Parisian chic girl.

Born and raised in the 16th arrondissement of Paris (the French upper east side!), she likes chic and elegant pieces. Over the years she managed to collect all the main pieces from luxe jewellers like the H and the Hapi bracelets from Hermes (quadruple wrap of course), the Trinity ring from Cartier, pearls from Tiffanys, cocktail earrings from Chanel or even a fabulous diamond parure for her city soirées. She choose the best out of each designer without mistake and that’s what I like.

Here is a glimpse into her fab collection.

The Day I met a Giant Birkin..

giant hermes birkin

I knew birkins came into giant (travel) sizes. I may have seen one in the press on Kim Kardashian or Victoria Beckham one day but I never actually saw one in the street (or well I mean around me).. till the other day in London, during Vivienne Westwood‘s fashion show at the Saatchi Gallery.

It was gigantic: 50x55cm! One of Vivienne Westwood’s climate change rep was wearing one while parading out there before and after the show. The bag was a used one. I guess Vivienne Westwood was trying to make the point that if you cherish your accessories or clothes, you should hang on to them and not replace them every season. Well.. point received: if I ever got the chance to put my hand on a Birkin (even in the smaller size), I would never ever stop loving it! ;)

In the meantime, how stylish it should feel to travel with a birkin..! Happy week everyone!

Inside the Closet of a Hermes Connoisseur!

Hermes scarf

My friend Y. has one of the biggest private “collections” of Hermes scarves I know! When you question her about it, she humbly and wittily explains that it is because she had time to collect models over the years with each Christmas or birthday being a new opportunity to complement her collection! I love her answer and get her point: a scarf collection is something you develop over the years..  with passion and knowledge.

Today to celebrate this lovely late Spring time, I photographed a selection of her amazing scarves, all in the shades of mauve, one of my favourite colours to wear in late Spring when I want to start to show off my skin but that it is not too tanned yet. The colours of the scarves are incredible and the patterns transport you from India to the bottom of the sea.. Enjoy and happy Bank Holiday!
