few of the best bits...
pompidou....lovely editorial pieces shown at this excellent contemporary gallery.these pieces show great use of colour, space and layout, very inspirational. definitely one of my favourite visits.
shabby chic style restaurantat musée baccarat, beautiful crystal museum which exuded class and style.
oh hi there wall of magazines...a good forty minutes (at least) was spent in the gift shop of palais de tokyo. fabulous shop with huge selection of art, fashion, graphics and architecture books.
musée d'orsay...stunning gallery in an old train station holding beautiful work from the greats including van gogh, renoir and derain.
fashion...couldn't go to paris and not stop in at colette. an all round lifestyle shop in stylish the end of paris. gadgets, magazines, books and clothes for both men and women. amazing use of space and design. lovely.
however, the real fashion treat for me was at printemps. with an alice and wonderland theme to the department store it had a magical feel to it in preparation for the film coming out in march. a row of the windows were themed, all mannequins with rabbit masks and alice in wonderland inspired clothing. however the absolute highlight was the tea party in the middle of the store. have tea and cake in the proper setting. giant teapots hanging from the ceiling, and mad hatter-esque checkered floor. amazing.

mario testino-always a fashion favourite. this footage for vogue march 2010 is beautiful. tints of corals mixed in with curls, gems, bows, frills, puffs, pastels and lace. the most glamorous doll i've ever seen. music 'under the stars' by ellie goulding sets it off perfectly. brilliant bit of viral advertising on vogues behalf.

what a beautiful bottle.
i always wonder how people can keep creating interesting perfume bottles which are simple and stylish. this particular bottle reminded me of le labo - a brand i love.
but this one here untitled (great idea) by maison martin margiela €55-100 from collette in paris

i don't usually blog about uni work, but this is a one off... so as part of my course we work with real brands and look at real problems. at the start of this term, the shoe brand kickers came in and asked for our help.
our aim? to get a trend setter, give them a pair of shoes..specifically the KICK HI...they wear the shoes, we track them and see what people think of them.
so our legend, matt box has been wearing his black quilted boots and on our request, has customized them too.
what do you think??
..quite the stud huh?!
