PARIS DESIGN WEEK 2014

Paris-Design-Week-2014

As some of you may know already, I am coming back to Paris where I grew up, in order to continue my studies in International Business.

This city may have some down sides, but one cannot deny that everything happens in Paris (or almost!). So from now on, many reviews and posts will be about French brands, restaurants, exhibitions, hiddens places, among many others.

Last weekend, I was at the Paris Design Week which happens once a year and aims to bring a broader audience to different designers, their work, studios, workshops, but also to secret bars and restaurants.

Unfortunetely I was outside of the country and only came back the last day of the Design Week. I went to the Cité de la Mode et du Design (City of Fashion and Design) and saw a very nice exhibition full of very talented creators.

All pieces were gorgeous and very interesting but I have to confess I had two main crushes:

TOUTALENVERS by Gregory Saraceni – Loved how original this was. Basically his whole collection is about upside down cups, mugs, plates, that you can drink/eat in.  I was so puzzled when I first looked at his work! This is pure genius!

ECHOES by Charlotte Juil­lard – Let’s not even talk about the quality of these speakers that looked more than perfect. Now should we say something about this sleek design? I don’t even think so. White ceramic and leather details?. Perfection.

Shout out to these wonderful artists and all the others that were presenting their work there and who have done an amazing job.

Also, I loved how the whole event was organized. You could whether follow a map and detailed circuits with all the details you needed, or just go your way.

In any case some of these spots were temporarily open for the Design week but others are just nice addresses to keep in mind to wander around!

I really hope you enjoyed this kind of more “in the field” post.

I have more of these planned with more pictures that I personally took.

Let me know what you would like to see next!

Today’s Song!

Hello to all!

I’m sorry I haven’t been posting that much, but I’ve been very busy with university.

The following days are going to be different because I got some inspiration, visiting some blogs here and there, reading some magazines etc.

Hope you’ll enjoy the next articles I’ll post!

I already told you guys about Malek Farhat, I follow them on facebook and everything they post is always at the very top of my Home page because I open almost every single link I see 😉

Lately they have been posting some very very cute pictures of little kids/babies with those awesome outfits.

In my point of view, I don’t think any baby kid should be overdressed, or wear too adult stuff. However, for a fun/grown up/princess photo shoot or special occasion I think it can be very cute.

According to the Preppy&Funny “rules” (see the “About” section and first articles). In fact, babies are babies, they should always keep some innocence in their outfits. It’s just, they must look cute anyway (I saw some pretty sexy outfits for babies.. and yea.. not the best look to me).

I think I never said as much “aww”‘s as during this week.

Hope you’ll “aww” a lot!

XOXO,
