A Parisian love affair: Part two
After The Dior Exhibition we made our way to our lunch spot. Pink Mamma is part of the restaurant group, Big Mamma-a beauty of a restaurant. The staff were full of life and the food was fresh, wholesome and delicious. There were four floors and the top floor was as though you were dining in a garden-surrounded by greenery and hanging plants.
We had pre-booked The Chloé exhibition and we travelled via the metro. Our guide was so lovely, informative and she reminded us of a real #Chloégirl. The exhibition was next door to The Chloé head quarters in an old apartment block that used to be a hotel. The interior was an interior dream and serious apartment goals. White walls, marble fire places, high ceilings, large wooden & glass doors and wooden floors with brushed gold accents. I could've moved in yesterday. The exhibition was clean, linear and beautiful. It was centered more around the works of Guy Bourdin as apposed to Chloé clothing, but it was informative and beautiful.
'Guy Bourdin-born in Paris. A Painter his entire life and a self-taught photographer, he worked for magazines, such as Vogue as well as for brands such as Chanel, Ungaro and Charles Jourdan. Famous for his suggestive narratives and surreal aesthetics, he radically broke conventions of commercial photography with a relentless perfectionism and sharp humour.'
Another caffeine fix was needed So we walked to Le Musée Jacquemart-André. It's a private museum located in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. In walking distance from The Chloé exhibition. The museum was created from the private home of Édouard André and Nélie Jacquemart to display the art they collected during their lives. Inside the museum is a beautiful 'salon de thé'.
We had some time before our departures so we browsed the Galeries Lafayette Haussmann and indulged in Pierre Hermé macarons before heading to the train station and airport.
Paris is what dreams are made of-we felt so fulfilled and the day filled our fashion tanks to the brim. We drew so much inspiration from the beauty of the people, the architecture and the incredible garments and artwork we saw.
One day is never enough, but we missed our families and although we are fashionistas at heart our families are our worlds. We are already planning our next trip so watch this space.
Merci beaucoup Paris-a très bientôt ma belle
