Don Pasquale

What has Donizetti's opera (yes, this post is not about the wine, sorry) and Gabriele Vintage in common ? I'll give you some clues. It's a man. He's french. He made his first step in fashion at Jean Patou. He's know working among others for the theater. And he seemed really inspired by our collection of 50's casuals and shirts. An idea ?

Yes, of course, I'm talking about Christian Lacroix !

Music, Lili, and the Stollen

Here they are, the Laptop Cats, dismissing Lili from her favorite place (yes, you know her, Lili is our laziest mannequin,  she lays there like the one and only queen and waits for some gentlemen to fulfil her wishes, but let's get back to our Jazzy Sunday). You missed quite a thing if you couldn't make it all the way to 27, rue des Chartreux! First, the band composed by Garance, Robin, Simon, Miko and Thanas, charming and groovy as always. Secondly, the atmosphere of course! It was like entering a warm and timeless place where all the troubles were just left at the door, in order to enjoy the familiar sound of cool music and christmas laughter (sigh). And last but not least, the "mini Stollen" you could find nearly everywhere, no doubt they were the subtil touch that made the difference. Clearly the stars of the day, to the disadvantage of Lili. But as we see, she did find some followers anyway ;)

Jazzy Sunday

Here we are again! Promoting as usual fresh newcomers! So this time, we are proud to present you a young jazz band, the Laptop Cats. They will play at the boutique this Sunday (the 11th), revisiting some Jazz standards. I'm sure you don't want to miss this old timer atmosphere... Imagine, you, great jazz classics and vintage everywhere. Nothing can go wrong. It has something of a time travel, hasn't it ? Sounds like a great experience to me! 

Just be there, and let yourself be inspired, we carry the rest.
