There’s a new girl in town! A sort of Cinderella on the hunt for her “happy ever after”, according to Rue Princesse owner Laurent Morel-Ruyman, who recently opened their newest boutique for all the princesses at heart, on where else, but the Rue Princesse! This adorable boudoir boutique is the perfect place to find a cute Christmas gift – choose from their line of handbags and accessories, as well as a selection of precious and semi-precious stone jewellery.

It is definitely the season for braderies! Everyone covets the idea of the designer ones, but even at this weeks by-invitation-only Jean-Paul Gaultier braderie (thank you Karine!) the only thing I spotted was a beautiful flamenco-like dress that was disappointingly WAY out of my budget (even at a braderie! yikes!). The other idea I like is raiding friend’s closets, which is the idea behind Viens Dans Mon Dressing! taking place this Sunday. Become a closet raider or get inspired to throw your own version amongst friends!

Normally I’m not that interested in Louis Vuitton handbags, even the past artistic collaborations, but I really like the look of next season’s Richard Prince bags unveiled recently during Paris Fashion Week. Prince is a mega-star in the world of contemporary art, and has never failed to skirt controversy with his rephotographed images, some say bordering on copyright infringement and certainly questioning the hallowed concept of artistic originality and authorship (normally a major concern at luxury houses worldwide, especially Louis Vuitton). While Marc Jacobs is obviously very clued into the art scene, I think a Richard Prince collaboration at Vuitton is certainly a very cheeky and entertaining concept deserving notice, comment, and probably even a little welcomed criticism.
