This post has been sitting in my draft box waiting for me to remember it since January!! I can’t believe that I totally forgot about it!!
Hermès always manages to create beautiful window displays. This year they have commissioned the sculptor Frank Plant to design their windows… I loved it so much that I thought it is worth posting even if its so late!!
Better late than never right?
One of my favorite stores in Paris is Alexandre Reza in 21 Place Vendôme. It’s an exclusive Paris atelier that has some of the highest quality of jewels. I can’t wait to receive my copy….I have a feeling that it would be one of those books that would always cheer me up when am feeling down!!!! 😉
I love this set. It has Berlin, London, New York, and Paris all covered in three volumes per city. It tells you which Hotels, Restaurants, and Shops to go to…..with beautiful hand-illustrated maps and some useful informations such as opening hours and prices… I highly recommend this set of books if you are traveling to anyone of these cities any time soon!
My Favorite Highlights include:
London: Number 16, a chic South Kensington hotel in a beautiful Victorian townhouse with romatic gardens, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s restaurant which we love and of course the Dover Street Market.
New York: The Maritime Hotel, a former sailors’ dorm, now Chelsea’s coolest hotel, the Waverly Inn, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter’s exclusive salon, and where to buy New York’s best cheesecake (very important for people with a sweet tooth like me!).
Paris: The original Ladurée, the best macaroons in the city, and my favorite go to fashion concept store Colette.
