Bonjour mes amours! After weeks of everyone asking what mischief I was up to in Paris for Bally, I can finally share with you the fruits of our labour.
Unlike any other project that I’d worked on before, I headed to Paris with my team to photograph my very own Easter Escape edit of what to wear in Paris this Spring .. during winter.. ‘that should be a piece of cake’ .. I say. When you are armed with Buttery soft loafers that will have you discarding your slippers forever more, oversized multi-functioning handbags that could contain a multitude of tricks, and colour-blocked leather shoulder bags that will have your friends green with envy, anything is possible .. or so they say.
With accessories as the focus and the team at the ready, we ventured out into the street to capture my favourite parts of the city and the rest they say is history.
Ahh Paris … long romantic strolls along the River Seine, the Jardin de Tuileries, picnics in the park on a warm sunny day .. and then there is the rain, yes Paris in the rain .. so poetic in theory yet magnificently inconvenient when one is photographing a project. Alas a wise man once said ‘Difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations’ and where some would see misfortune others see opportunity. So instead of showing you a part of Paris you may have already seen, I wanted to share with you my favourite SECRET spots of this beautiful city with my Bally in toe.
The secret light filled arcade that is Galerie Vivienne .. instagram friendly rain hail or shine, the Odette et Zoe Café and their infamous cheesecake (we’ll take 2 serves please) and the hidden courtyards of Palais Royal .. dreamy light all year round FYI, all my favourites in one place.
So girls next time you’re in town I’ll let you know when I’m around, we could head to Odette et Zoe Café and I’ll let you share my cake. I may draw the line however when it comes to my Lavilla loafers or my Ballyum bag, for that I suggest that you should go get your own .. as my bff will happily say .. friends may share anything, however true friends will buy two of the same of everything .. we’ll take 2 of everything merci beaucoup!
