Paris Wives

"It is not what Paris gave you but what it did not take from you that is important." Thought we often look for one, we finally had to admit that there could be no cure for Paris and this connection we have with this marvelous city. One of the best things about Paris was always coming back after we'd gone away. It is like a secret wicked game we play. It is not a detective story, but a story about time, girls who come along and change the world, a story about how you can have it all. Just not all at once.

Love, Sunset, Sea and Sun!

Lately every wish we have...it happens. We don't know if it is pure luck or the power of possitive thinking, but it surely works big time, since we spend our life lately in wonderful places, surrounded only by beautiful people, silence and love. And as we got used to all these amazing gifts that life gives us sometimes, we couldn't be more than happy to wake up and fall asleep in this magic scenery. Is there anything better in this world than love, sunrises and sunsets?

Summer Break

“The world is your oyster. It's up to you to find the pearls.”  Chris Gardner, The Pursuit of Happyness
One week before our summer holiday when we will find the pearls of Cote d'Azur and the Mediterranean coast of Spain, we have decided to take a break and change the view for three days. Here are our beach outfits and as you can see we are wearing two wonderful prototypes from the next Moo Eyewear collection. What do you think about them?

Lunch Break with Kristina Dragomir

Since we have a new project "Share a Coca-Cola with" we thought that is a very good opportunity to have an unconventional lunch break with the queen of hats, Kristina Dragomir. And since we absolutely adore this mad hatter, her work and everything that is part of her life, we wanted to share with you some little details about what she likes, what she is and some other ''w'' qustions that she answered to. Enjoy it ladies!

Make the summer worth

It happens from time to time to have a free day and it also happens to have the luck ( ironically speaking) to be stuck in a canicular-empty city, where the only thing you can do is writing stupid to do lists for the summer:

1. Eat a lot of ice-cream. Your life will get better in just a few minutes:))
2. It's time to go on holiday! With your best friend, by yourself or with your lover. Just Go! It's summer, so be spontaneous, choose a destination and leave the city.

HEADS NOT HATS Collection by Kristina Dragomir


Less WORDS. More HATS. Oups! HEADS not hats, Kristina Dragomir would say!
Our beloved queens, starting the S/S13 season, the items signed by Kristina Dragomir can be found in the L'Eclaireur Portfolio, one of the greatest concept stores in Paris, but also in Beams International and farfetch.com. So spend your money wisely and buy as many HATS you can!

Top 10 Haute Couture Collections FW 2013/2014

We wanted to make a Top 5 Haute-Couture Collections FW 2013/2014, but these collections are so good that they deserve an extended top 10 :)

1. Elie Saab
He is the master of couture. The collection was amazing  and the trio of colors - ruby, emerald, saphire - left us speechless. The designer is a firm believer in monochrome, red sequins on red silk, blue paillettes on blue lace and he surely has the recipe for success. He doesn't take risks and plays safe all the time. He bets big, he wins big. It is the only way he plays. So, obviously, for us, Ellie Saab is the No.1 Couture Collection

We'll always have Paris

If you ask us how was Paris again...We cannot resume it to a single word, because it was fascinating, unpredictable, ravishing, exquisite, bewitching, chic, glamurous, fun, wild, fantabulous, exhausting and simply amazing. The only thing that matters is that in a short time we'll be back,  but not before a so expected vacation.

Laurence Xu - Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

Creator of art, Laurence Xu can be considered a maestro with a needle. His creations allows us to travel in time into two worlds: the mystical universe of Chinese Empire and the modern style and design of a dressmaker full of creativity. A devoted artist who, like a magician, brings us into a timeless journey where the traditional handmaking and 4000 year old folkloric embroidery is the link between his roots, his modern eye and future success in our world.

The creation of beauty is art

Heads, not hats

We love haute couture and yes, we love haute couture shows. Who wouldn't?! They are something else and a must see, and thank God, this season was a very rich one for us. All you have to do is check the Fashion section on our blog to see the fashion shows we've been invited to because the collections are simply fabulous. But coming back to the photos above, the happiest moment was the moment when we attended Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2013 show...

Mad Hatters at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week


I know we have promised to post every single day, but even if we had our team photographer with us, it was not easy at all to check all the tasks on our schedule. As you'd probably expect, these days spent in Paris are a blessing for us and we simply cannot help but take photos wherever we go. So this time we will let the photos talk about our second work-fun day in the City of Love and we promise to come back with more infos about the shows, showrooms and parties we have attended.
