While it’s technically Haute Couture Week, many brands reason salon visits for their latest collections. Case in point: Louis Vuitton. we finished my approach over to their office on Rue du Louvre to perspective their latest journey collection, that showed in Kyoto, Japan this past May. Walking into a space, my eyes start to wander excitedly. No one executes a trouser as good as Nicolas Ghesquière—his blunt tailoring is enviable. we utterly adore a rarely charcterised accessories finished in partnership with Japanese artist, Kansai Yamamoto, who frequently collaborated with David Bowie. Another standout had to be a cowboy boots—they meant business!

2:30PM 
It’s a unequivocally comfortable day in Paris today. we opt for my Issey Miyake Pleats Please dress, that ceases to overlay no matter how feeble we overlay it. we conduct to Jean Paul Gaultier, and by now, I’ve turn a bit some-more laid behind on nearing on time. All a shows I’ve attended start about 30 mins after a invitation time, that is good given a terrible trade in a city. What I’ve desired this deteriorate (and past seasons) is saying relatives bringing their kids to a shows. Whether or not a babysitter was off sick, it’s a good preparation and provide to see complicated dexterity during this level—all in all, those kids are lucky! The lights low and a screen opens to a balance of French Christmas carols—or what we viewed to be Christmas carols. Swiss Alps-ready knits, correction, Swiss Alps-ready, Haute Couture knits, confidant pinstripe suiting—JPG’s specialty and signature—come down a runway, modelled by soaring models (probably a tallest I’ve seen this week).

It was transparent that JPG was vehement about a arrival of winter. The names of a looks were utterly impertinent this season: Anna Winter, Lady Gla Gla, Gstaad The Way It Is, and Robe in Hood. No reason necessary. we seem to have grown a bit of an mania for flush Haute Couture. My favourite demeanour was a hooded red robe with a contrasting black belt—very Grace Jones à la Dangerously Yours. The culmination was utterly magical: Coco Rocha cycling down a runway looking all winter wonderland-like. Check out a discerning snap on a Instagram here.

4:15PM
I rush to ‎Place Vendôme for Louis Vuitton’s high trinket presentation—my Uber takes forever! Had to take a photo of their office; we was unequivocally drawn to a art work in a watchful area. Louis Vuitton’s latest high trinket collection, Conquêtes, celebrates women who are confident and conquering, and brings together a maison’s dual mystic motifs, a monogram flower and a V, for a initial time.

5:10PM 
Off to Hotel Potocki, where Zuhair Murad will uncover his latest Haute Couture collection. The stairs heading adult to a ballroom were awe-inspiring. How is this genuine life? we suspect if we live in Paris, all a buildings start consistent together—it’ll never be normal for me! we take my chair and discuss with a publisher and a photographer from New York. Chit-chat fast incited to politics, and we remarked on how pleasing it was to be in Paris. I’m always anxious when I’m seated tighten to a pit, where a photographers who request a uncover stand. Their dispatch for a good print creates a jobs as editors, journalists, and stylists many easier. Without them documenting a shows it would be unequivocally formidable to get things done.


For his latest collection, Zuhair Murad, took impulse from the Gibson Girl, a pivotal figure in a late 19th century. The opening demeanour modelled by Sara Sampaio, like many after it, was impossibly intricate—something Zuhair Murad is famous for. The collection featured luxurious textures and textiles: ostrich feathers, ornate hemlines, festooned sequins, and pleated tulle. Simply gorgeous!

After responding a slew of e-mails on 0 caffeine and terrible takeout, we conduct toward Rue Danielle Casanova to L’École des Arts Joailliers, where a latest Van Cleef Arpels high trinket collection is displayed. The collection titled Le Secret explores a pleasing possibilities of a tip setting. The Labyrinthe Ring was a personal standout. It was equal tools complicated and art deco. When we demeanour it, your eye is now drawn to a twists and turns of a onyx and diamonds—looks like a maze!

6:00PM
As a appointments and shows pull to a tighten and a cab hopping comes to an end, it’s critical to provide oneself to some rest and relaxation. Enter: La Maison Dr. Hauschka, tucked divided in a watchful building on Rue de Charonne. It’s ideal for someone who wants to get divided from a hotel sauna scene. Don’t get me wrong, we adore a large spa, though we was in hunt of somewhere more intimate. Upon entering, I’m greeted by peaceful and caring staff. I’m scheduled for a classical Dr. Hauschka face caring treatment, Plénitude. What we collected from a esthetician’s brief is that there’s no extraction—yes!

The two-hour diagnosis starts with a clarification and massaging of a feet, legs, arms and face. This was accurately how we wanted to finish my day! The many critical partial of a diagnosis is a lymphatic stimulation, finished wholly by palm and soothing brushes, and dictated to rid a skin of impurities and move it behind to it’s best condition. The stroke of a esthetician’s hands reminded me of a facial exercises and massaging my father used to do—I was confused by it all as a kid, though now we get because he looks so young! I’ve never felt this relaxed during a face treatment. we dosed off a few times and went off to dreamland. All in all, we rarely suggest this sauna after a jam-packed conform week!
