2 Parisien Finds
On my recent trip to Paris in January I struck very lucky at Hermès Rue de Sevres. I had been looking for a "Printemps Ete 69 Automne Hiver 70" scarf but alas I had missed the boat at home...but when I went to RdS they had one. However when the SA opened the drawer there was another grail peeping out at me. I could not believe my luck - one of the first 70cm vintage scarves launched in 2007 - Jeu des Omnibus et Dames Blanche! They had one! I already have the pink one but am not too keen on that colourway but this one was the white/grey/black with a hint of red. No way was I leaving it behind so I bought it!!
This design is one of Hermès oldest.
Here worn cowboy style.
And here worn with my new mother or pearl moyenne MaiTai Collection scarf ring -one end slipped through the ring and the other pushed through the loop over the bar in the ring.
After I left Hermès RdS with my new scarf I could not help thinking about the PE69AW70 I had left behind. After going around the Bvlgari exhibition at the Grand Palais it was no good I HAD to go back to RdS to see if the scarf was still there - it was. So I gave in and bought it - the SA remembered me - she told me this particular colourway was very popular with her Italian clientele! So here it is, the 70cm big sister to my 2 gavroches in the same design:-
Here worn with my scarf ring as above - it was meant to be a waterfall knot but I am not sure I quite got it right - I need to practise!
And the good old cowboy knot.
No trip to Paris would be complete without buying some Ladurée macaroons and I found this lovely Moon and Sun box which I had filled solely with Praline flavour macaroons - my favourite!
What a fun box!
