We love lingerie! We love burlesque! We love champagne! We love glamour! Bring them all together and what do you have? The seriously fabulous and totally drop-dead sexy Gentry de Paris Burlesque Revue! Reserve your tickets today!
My favourite time of year by far, to make new resolutions, is in the summer: there’s no pressure to effect any miracles; it’s warm, which is conducive to a dreamy state-of-mind; and the promise of September (still enjoying your summer tan, looking great in Fall clothes) is a very strong motivator! Today I was contemplating my sartorial resolutions, and I decided that number one on my list was to start buying beautiful underwear. By that, I don’t mean more Agent Provocateur or La Perla! But really fine, seriously fabulous, handmade, couture, undergarments. And of course it would practically be a sin to go anywhere else than Loft Cadolle.
Poupie Cadolle, like the generations of Cadolle women before her, is a serious connoisseur; and with the lovely Céline, personally oversees all loft fittings. Together you can choose which models, which fabrics, which colours, and which finishings! It’s enough to make you feel dizzy! That said, I would certainly be interested to hear what your summer resolutions might be! But of course, if they’re Loft Cadolle, you know you can’t go wrong!
Loft Cadolle, 255 rue St. Honoré, 75001 Paris, 01 42 60 94 94, M° Concorde or Tuileries
Everyone wants to know what Eva Longoria will be wearing for her Saturday Paris nuptials with Tony Parker (see: Chanel Haute Couture for the civil service, then a rumoured Vera Wang chef d’oeuvre said to have been handmade by 20 seamstresses), but what’s far more interesting is what will she be wearing after her “I do”s! With days to go before the July 7th event, she might want to consider a silk concoction from haute lingerie line Gentry de Paris. Californian Gentry Lane is a true aficionado of timeless French silks and is happy to welcome you and your closest friends (in Eva’s case, guests like Jessica Alba, Victoria Beckham, and Jessica Simpson) to her boudoir-showroom for an afternoon shopping spree!
