Paris place Vendome bles Chanel

I took this picture in July in Paris. The weather was not particularly nice, as you can see.

The conjunction of the dark clouds and the grey wheat fields gave a particular eerie atmosphere to the Place Vendôme.

Blés Vendôme was an installation by artist Gad Weil made of wheat, wood and sand to draw the attention on the necessity to revegetate our cities. It was patronised by Chanel as Gabrielle Chanel “always saw in wheat her lucky charm and never ceased surrounding herself with it”. An ode to nature and luxury.

And isn’t it just that, luxury? Bringing the countryside into the urban space, even for an ephemeral moment?

On the same trip, I had the opportunity to meet and interview Pascale Guasp of Ells Collection who is disrupting the luxury fashion industry with her new business model. An inspiring encounter! Read her interview below.

And in a few days, I’ll be adding new spots I visited during my stay.

Stay tuned!


Our latest interview

Pascale Guasp

I met Pascale through a common acquaintance, Frédérique Clavel, whom I interviewed last year.

Pascale decided to take the plunge and start her own business 3 years ago: she wanted to take a look at the other side of the mirror, to get her “hands dirty” in doing rather than advising which had been her career for over 20 years.

She talks with passion about her new endeavour, disrupting the fashion industry with a new business model: a luxury wardrobe rental service.

Perfect for everyday consumption or if the airline company has just lost your suitcase!

I met this enthusiastic lady in Paris in her exceptional concept store near the Rond-Point de l’Etoile.

My Papuan adventures: going back to the roots.

I have recently travelled to PNG (Papua New Guinea) and the experience was so extraordinary that I decided that I would write this post, even though this might be a bit off track from the usual articles I publish. But I guess there is logic in that as, in hindsight, it’s also quite consistent with the philosophy of this blog…which is to veer off the beaten track!
