Dive into all the ‘savoir-faire’ of the House of Dior at the Mythical Hotel Particulier 30, avenue Montaigne, Paris; in which was born the ‘New Look’ of Christian Dior: from the Haute Couture workshops, to the Fine Jewellery, Mens Suit, and Leather Goods, but also the universe of Dior perfumes and make-up.
I saw this post on Dior’s facebook page and I could not help but be romantic about avenue Montaigne. This is one of the most important streets in fashion. It is home to the world’s high fashion labels such as Louis Vuitton, Dior, Chanel, Fendi, Valentino and of course home to several other upscale establishments such as the Plaza Athénée hotel where you can often spot famous guests and fashionistas.
Living a block away from this street meant that I had to pass by the shops more often than my wallet could afford. But on a beautiful Parisian day, I would find myself at L’AVENUE on avenue Montaigne for lunch in place of window shopping. This fine establishment was my favorite place to people watch since there were more Kelly bags and cute dogs than people.
Last night was fun! We toured the different venues and San Francisco’s fashion crowd really stepped it up! The party ended at Saks, which also was the only place with a continuous flow of bubbly – live and learn, NM.
The Marc Jacobs Circus tee launched last night was a little too bland for me. Not quite unisex enough to be cool and not quite circus-ey to be just crazy enough.
Neiman Marcus showcased pieces from their new collections on each floor. This fall is still looking grungy, but less army and more ladylike than the previous year. The just below the knee skirt length is really hard to wear – I know it would make my runner’s calves look like poles!
Both Lona and I totally loved the Haider Ackermann blazer on the far right, the shoulder cut is so elegant.
StylePal’s Lona and StylePal friend Kelsie looking gorgeous as ever, Lona rocking her DVF summer dress in spite of the cool SF night it was.
New collection from 3.1 Phillip Lim, lots and lots of chunky knits of all kinds this season, love it.
