The Parisian and her handbag…a love story over the centuries. It can be mini, just enough for a phone and a credit card although very often huge, heavy and an annex to our home. We love it. During a well-filled day, it even turns into a set of matryoshkas, the Balenciaga shopping bag housing a Fendi evening bag and, of course, a makeup bag, not forgetting the shoulder bag for things that have to be found quickly…

For us Parisian women, February and March are two months synonymous with moda, fashion shows and new ideas to stitch on the catwalks! As every year we are waiting for the program not to miss the show of our darlings, for some Dior, for others Jacquemus (I love...), and for many of my girlfriends, Chanel and its theatrical moves. Here is the schedule to prepare you, Paris during fashion weeks is just incredible, at every street corner you meet models, Vip or strangers dressed in incredible ways!

The mystery of stilettos revealed… Scientists have observed that stiletto heels accentuate the movement of a woman’s hips, while shortening their stride...

"Black is always trendy" is what people often say to each other when they don't know what to wear. In any case.... Black is the Parisian woman’s color. Beyond the boulevard périphérique—the wall that “protects” the capital—women wear beige, blue, and pastel tones, but in the Ville Lumière, black persists and always wins. Although the runways and fashion magazines offer the new colors of the season, when buying, reason beats emotion and the Parisienne chooses black because it is the “master key” that goes with everything and suits all situations. 

While in other cultures “over accessorizing” is seen simply as a demonstration of femininity, in Paris it’s considered good form not to overdo it for fear of looking tasteless. That might seem a paradoxical attitude, but it’s based on the Parisian woman’s mentality of “less is more.” Basically, you can spoil a look by trying to overdo it, and that applies to jewelry, makeup, accessories, and plastic surgery. So…

The story of the well-known brand Repetto is an amazing tale…. But first and foremost, it’s the story of a free and modern woman Rose Repetto, an entrepreneur before her time. A woman of passion who believed in her lucky star. Flashback to a French success story!

A wild claw hit the Parisian women: the leopard is back. Even if the famous French rule of elegance "less is more" is still valid, this year the Parisian women are leaving their reserve: the leopard print is worn all over, i.e. on imposing and striking pieces such as coats and dresses. If it has long been rejected and decreed vulgar in the capital of good taste, it is now over. On the contrary, black spots have never been so famous and worn by influencers. There are as many leopard prints and ways to wear it as there are styles and women, it's up to you to play with the beasts, but let's see together HOW TO DO....

It's been hard to deny the appeal of natural colors in recent months, thanks to a flood of designers who refreshed them on spring/summer 2019's catwalks. Burberry led the charge with its traditional trench coats and checked shirt and coordinating camel trousers, but the palette was everywhere from Chanel to Dior, Fendi to Loewe. So, why beige, why now? If fashion is the constant push and pull of action and reaction, then we could call beige a backlash to the 'look at me' showboating that Instagram and the rise of street style have spawned. Maybe in a world of overstimulation, designers were issuing an official invitation to pare things back and start afresh. Whatever the reason, we're all aboard the beige train.

Rare, insolite, adattate e identificate con i vari nomi di chi le ha richieste, sono accomunate – quasi tutte – da un nome, quello del loro creatore: Rami Mekdachi. Le tre fragranze Jacques Garcia, sono lui. Sono lui anche l’Eau de cologne Bensimon, l’Eau de Colette, il Parfum Costes…

So they are unsuitable for gardening, unless it’s high-society gardening or the jardins of the Palace of Versailles. She wears them “casual chic” or “elegant cool,” from morning to night, during the week or on the weekend, from the kitchen to the meeting room, at an opening in Saint-Germain-des-Prés or riding a bicycle through the streets of the French capital…

Roger Vivier is often remembered for dressing a list of exceptional women. Not only did he design the shoes Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II worn in 1953 on her coronation day, he also crafted acclaimed creations for the greatest personalities of his times: the Duchess of Windsor, Princess Soraya of Iran, Marlene Dietrich, Elizabeth Taylor, Brigitte Bardot and, of course, Catherine Deneuve in “Belle de Jour”, the film in which the iconic heels featuring the silver buckle made their first appearance.
