Bonjour My Dears!
I know I said my last post I was sharing pictures of Florence but I couldn’t resist showing you these photos of the amazing Louve and my ‘borrowed bag’.
I always seem to be passing through a city when something exciting is happening. (Very much unintentionally!) So have been very lucky to have arrived in Paris during the time of Paris Fashion Week. Hence alot of good looking individuals and wonderful opportunities for sneaky street fashion photos.
This amazing bag which I was given the pleasure of posing with, is Bao Bao by isseymiyake. As soon as I saw this technicolour and geometric design, I was in love. This amazing pattern is a common trend throughout their entire colourful collection. which seem to change colour and capture the light in completely wonderful ways. The contours, the rendering make Bao Bao seem like a piece of art (an art piece which also conveniently can hold your wallet, phone and lipstick) which feels so great to hold, as it seem to mould itself your arm and fingers.
Sadly, this gorgeous bag doesn’t belong to me but to the amazing Anya and Bella who were holidaying and working in Paris for the week. Anya works for Issey Miyake and was there for Paris fashion week and Bella (who actually took these photos of me) was lucky enough to come for the holiday! Thanks so much to these wonderful ladies for letting me vigorously inspect your Bao Bao bags and to be in awe of this amazing piece of design.
And the final image, is probably one of the most famous ladies in the world. The Mona Lisa, man that lady knows how to command a room!
Hoping to show you more of Paris and of my favourite parts of Italy
