Trend Report: Classic Camel

Camel is the new black!

If you only buy one coat or jacket this season, buy one in camel, as it's definitely the colour of the season! It is a real investment piece! Chloe has created an entire collection in this color and we have also seen it in the collections of Stella McCartney, Gucci, Max Mara and Michael Kors.
Camel goes with everything and especially with black, navy, white and my personal favourite, grey. It's a timeless chic buy!

I LOVE: Galerie BSL

This is not just an art gallery. It is a piece of art by itself. Next time you're in Paris it's definitely worth a visit.
"It is a question of assembling rare objects and creating a dialogue between them, objects which innately offer an experience of intimacy, of connection and, why not, emotion.” 
This is how the concept of the new Paris design gallery is defined by its founder Béatrice Saint-Laurent.
Galerie BSL is located in Marais at 23 rue Charlot, Paris 3rd and was designed by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance - architect, designer, scenographer. He has created a sequence of spiral white Corian, a functional sculpture extrapolated to architectural dimensions. This structure becomes the first object placed in the gallery which was created to exhibit other objects.

Galerie BSL presents one-off and limited-edition series, made exclusively for the gallery, in contemporary art, design, vintage jewellery and fashion.

Louis Vuitton is going on Safari

I have always dreamt of going on a safari, the latest Louis Vuitton campaign made me travel with them. I feel like I am in my tent surrounded by lions and giraffes. I totally love this new catalogue, shot by Carter Smith, directed by William Snieg, styled by Antje Winter, and produced by Brachfeld. The lucky young model is Dree Hemingway (Ernest’s great-granddaughter). Have a great weekend!

Books in style : Audrey Hepburn photographed by Bob Willoughby

One more beautiful collection from Taschen!

Photographer Bob Willoughby was called in to shoot the new starlet one morning shortly after she arrived in Hollywood in 1953. When he first met the Belgian-born beauty, Willoughby was enraptured."She took my hand like...well a princess, and dazzled me with that smile that God designed to melt mortal men's hearts", he recalls.

This Collector’s Edition, limited to 1,000 copies, presents 13 years of Bob Willoughby's work with Audrey. It is numbered and signed by himself.
Taschen, €350
