When the days get duller and you are yearning for a little winter respite, what better place to travel to than Paris. The French Capital is the absolute ideal place to show off long forgotten but equally loved outfits deemed too daring for the UK streets. Paris is a fashion lover’s dreamland that incorporates a modern lifestyle whilst still holding onto its romantic charm.
The inspiration for our 11 Rue De Penthievre collection was born in Paris, having been encouraged by Lady Duff Gordon’s infamous couture house in Paris. The luxurious cream silk lingerie edged with the intricate gold lace symbolizes the Parisian style.
You could spend weeks at a time strolling up and down the cobbled streets of ‘The City of Light’ perusing the patisseries and classic French restaurants. But who has time? We have carefully selected two equally wonderful establishments to make your Parisian weekend spectacular.
Kong, the restaurant and cocktail bar designed by Philippe Stark once featured on that infamous Sex And The City episode (the one where Carrie had lunch with Aleksandr Petrovsky’s ex-wife). This quintessential Parisian hotspot offers a touch of Tokyo and geisha glam. The tuna steak and red curry sauce comes highly recommended.
Kong, 1 Rue du Pont Neuf, Paris
If you are searching for a deliciously decadent patisserie to ease your afternoon sweet tooth in true Parisian style, Arnaud Larhrer is the place. Arnaud Larher patisserie is a orange beacon of sweet delight situated in the winding streets of the Montmartre district. These beautifully crafted creations are loved by tourists and locals alike, our mouths are watering just thinking about those delightful macaroons!
Arnaud Larher, 57 Rue Damrémont, Paris.
