S.O.S crocodile crushes clutch

Sensitive hearts do abstain from this video showing a crocodile seizing a bag, a brawl starts, as in any good film we will let you imagine the end…  A rectangular clutch designed by my friend Anne Grand-Clement who has  a splendid collection of embroidered clutches and wallets, all made in India. The handwork for this clutch took over 24 hours to complete, by an embroidery technique called “point of Beauvais”, whereas a gold plated wire is used. Embroidered clutch 18 x 24 cm , satin lining 300€ and its brass chain gilded 95€ ANNE GRAND CLEMENT www.annegrandclement.com Fountain in Paris  5th district sculptor Pierre Pomateau 1846.

Large languorous eyes , an exquisite mouth and a peachy skin: meet Eugénie Grandet, conscientiously observed by her cousin Charles under the pen of Honoré de Balzac in a novel written in September 1883. Hiding under this bibi hat is my friend Bertille, jokingly posing as a daunted provincial girl.

the woman who walked in the head


The total-look is rare, and even more rare is a completely green silhouette. However, at the bottom-end of the Avenue Montaigne, in Paris,
a Lady waits, half sitting, waiting for someone to put her boots on to complete her outfit. Until then , she counts the steps in her head in anticipation…

Eau Légère is not only light water…

Because Légère means “light”, you may think it’s insignificant…Big mistake!
L’Eau Légère by Bottega Veneta is my perfume and I can’t spend a day without people talking about that beautiful smell “What is this marvelous perfume?””It fits you so well!”.
I’d like to share those compliments! The composition itself is an appeal to dream: chyrpre, musk and a touch of gardenia. Chyrpre comes from a oak moss. Musk acts as a bait the same way as pheromones.
Composed by Master Perfumer Michel Almairac, the original spirit of Eau Légère conquers everyone around me
