A charitable thought

Sonia Rykiel Carré d’Espoir

Leading up to Christmas is always a fun time to go to charitable auctions in Paris! The combo of fashion designer/celebrity + charity always works wonders, and has the added advantage of making everyone feel good!

Tomorrow evening Dessine l’Espoir will be holding their vente aux enchères featuring 20 designers like Sonia Rykiel and Alber Elbaz, in an effort to raise awareness and support for their charitable actions throughout Africa. Fashion cares? Sold!


60 reasons to say I love you!


I shudder to think of a world without Repetto! – no respite for your sore tootsies after an evening of dancing, the panic to find some other flats that look impossibly chic in a matter of seconds, and an end to toe cleavage! Thankfully we don’t need to envision a world without them, which gives us all the more reason to celebrate their 60th anniversary! To mark the occasion 60 artists, dancers, designers (like Jean-Paul Gaultier) and actors (like Catherine Deneuve and Charlotte Gainsbourg) have each designed a custom pair of shoes, which will be exhibited in their rue de la Paix store from September 27th! (an avant-première was also available at the salon du prêt-à-porter). Additionally, Colette will also be selling the famous Brigitte Bardot flats starting September 20th! I hope to be first in line! 😉

Rugby Rocks!


They say that rugby is the gentleman’s sport – so gentlemen wanting to buy some more time in the pub or in front of the screen for the Rugby World Cup might want to think of offering this little bauble in pink gold and green tourmaline! Apart of the L’Art Emmêlé collection, which will be showcased at a special auction and gala dinner to benefit the Laureus Fondation on October 18th. BTW Allez les Bleus!!
