I have just returned with the Eurostar back to London from an amazing five days in Paris. Oh, how I love that city! This time around it was part of my studies at London College of Fashion, but that didn’t make the trip any worse. We were lucky enough to experience some good weather the first days, which meant one thing: coffee & croissants on a sidewalk café! I also discovered the brand Oxyde after visiting their store on Rue de Charonne and I was pleasantly surprised about their selection of clothing items. How can I never have heard about this brand before??! Of course, I didn’t walk out of there empty handed.
Besides some really good shopping and food experiences I also visited a couple of exhibitions that are worth mentioning. The first one was Claude Monet’s water lilies at the Musée de l’Orangerie. I love the simplicity of the paintings and the way they are exhibited in these light, oval shaped rooms. The second exhibition we visited was the Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. It is by far the most grandiose exhibition I have ever seen and truly an amazing experience (despite the many people).
