back from paris...

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.
