Last year, Cartier introduced a collection of leather goods for men, named Louis Cartier. This spring, the Maison addresses women will the C de Cartier bag: a subtly sophisticated bag coming in a variety of nuanced glimmering tones, all inspired by fine stones. 

With the option of shoulder or hand carry, the bag's vibrant hues are inspired by the signature shades of the Maison interpreted in cheery monochrome: in fresh, capricious splashes of amethyst, spessartite garnet, cordierite, turquoise, chalcedony and pink quartz.

Since the end of the sixties, David Hamilton has been an iconic art photographer, known for his images of young women depicted with pastel colours, surrounded by a soft light in a blurred atmosphere. This signature technique, inspired by painting, made him an international reference in the 1970’s.

Spring has sprung for good in Paris : what better occasion to share some style pictures, especially when you have the opportunity to shoot them in a typical, stately Haussmannian, newly renovated and spacious Parisian appartement !

The one I selected for this session is located at Citadines Suites Arc de Triomphe Paris, a truly prestigious travel address less than a minute walk from Trocadero and its stunning Eiffel Tower view.

Kiribati, Liechtenstein, Bhutan, East Timor... These exotic destinations have often been dreamed of by some of us, but very few can say they have actually travelled to these places. 

Although there is an emerging trend of travelers ready go to great lengths to seek out holiday destinations off the beaten track, most of these destinations remain hard to reach by scheduled flight.

Behind a magnificent location, there often is a wonderful architect. Bruno Moinard is one of those, as I mentioned in the past on The Parisian Eye: he is the man behind significant design projects such as Christie’s New York, the Hermès Paris headquarters, Cartier stores worldwide and the Château Latour wine estate, just to name a few. 

For his first restaurant project in the UK, Bruno Moinard has worked on a true London institution, namely The Grill at The Dorchester.

It is a known fact that in times when the economy is unsure, people tend to trust sound investments like luxury values. An information verified by Vertu over the past year: in 2014, the company saw an incredible 350 % increase in engagement with its luxury lifestyle services, which customers can access via the Vertu LIFE app.

It’s April, and April is synonymous with the transition to beautiful days ! 

Perfect timing to start thinking about renewing our beauty routine for a clear, pure, beautiful skin when the summer sun is back!

Earlier this week, I was invited to discover Chanel's new Fine Jewelry line, COCO CRUSH. As usual, Chanel did things to perfection, as I was immersed in a customized universe reflecting the “matelassé” or quilted pattern that COCO CRUSH is based on.

From the quilted walls of the private salons at Chanel Place Vendôme, to the magician entertaining us and the video, music and drawings, everything was COCO CRUSHed !

This video, just released, introduces the collection.

Last year, I discovered the new couture face of the Hotel Plaza Athénée Paris, which reopened after months of refurbishment. While the hotel offers the ultimate French food experiences with La Galerie and world-famous 3 star Alain Ducasse Restaurant, it’s a quite different atmosphere that prevails at the bar.

Jewelry heaven Rue de la Paix in Paris is about to welcome Piaget’s biggest flagship in the world. Scheduled for opening at the beginning of May this year, the store will be spread over two floors.

Visitors of the Maison’s 7, Rue de la Paix address, will step into the house where Charles-Frédéric Worth, the inventor of haute couture, hosted the aristocracy of his time.
