WAKE UP TO COLOUR






LA COULEUR REVEILLE
Once in a while you need to wake up your style. Don't be afraid of a pop of brilliant M$M shades. Try taking a risk with a bright red chair or a yellow pillow. You might soon graduate to a bright yellow wall or a fire engine red fridge.

FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY AS ART





L'ART PHOTOGRAPHIE DE MODE



The media shower us with images of, among other things, fashion. Some shots are there to inform, some to seduce, all to sell. 
When photographers find just the right awe inspiring design, the right model, the right venue and to all that, they add their own genius, the result is absolute, fascinating, breathtaking art.

Photo, yes. 
Art, yes 
Fashion? not so sure.

WHAT HAT TO WEAR TO A FANCY WEDDING




UN BEAU CHAPEAU POUR UN BEAU MARIAGE
Black will always make a BIG statement
But how about a touch of black on a big straw hat!

Low-key elegance will work of course

Subtle color will perk up a black or neutral outfit


Maybe just wearing a big beautiful bow might work...

Just not your average good little girl bow...




au revoir.

BACK FROM NEW YORK CITY





DE RETOUR DE NEW YORK


We are finished with our show at the Jacob K. Javits Center in the Big Apple and I am back in the south of France to pick up my vacation where I left it…
As hard as it was to take the TGV high speed train to Paris on a beautiful, lazy, sunny day, to catch my flight to NYC 10 days ago, I was very excited to see how our collection would do this time around.
Our Kesh bed cover did not disappoint and is once again our best seller. We added a soft gray and a rich deep blue to the eggshell-white original. We hit it out of the park with all three I am delighted to say. 
And now the real fun begins. We are confirming orders and it's up to me to get things done: to go to Morocco and give the weavers their orders and to make sure everything will come in on time. 
I'll stay a few more days in wonderful Ardèche for now, and once again I'll take the road back to Paris, this time to continue on to Tangier. 
A girl's got to do what a girl's got to do….


au revoir.

SISTERLY ADMIRATION SOCIETY





ADMIRATION FRATERNELLE




My sister Joëlle has just put the final touches to her book VILLA VICTORIA. 
A while in the making, it tells the captivating story of an Englishman, his grand villa in Tangier Morocco and the crimes, intrigue and twists that come to shake up his calm existence.

She is now up there with the best of them on Amazon. If you are so inclined you should consider looking her up over there. You can download a kindle app. so as to read the novel on your device of choice.
I love her tale and I know you will. 

She is dying to get some feedback. Aaahh, the angst of the rookie author...


au revoir.
