Hello Paris, Our Old Friend

Patricia and Jennifer attended the Première Vision Trade Show from July 5th through the 7th in Paris. Held twice a year at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Convention Center, this show features the six major industries that supply materials to the fashion industry. 

While exploring the latest trends is always exciting, Patricia and Jennifer never miss a chance to do some of their favorite things in this city that they feel so passionately about.  

Below, Jennifer is looking onto the Seine River at the Quai du Louvre. This famous quay (or key) is located in the 1st arrondissement and runs alongside the Louvre Museum, which is the world's most visited museum and for good reason. Originally a royal palace, during the French Revolution it was converted to a museum and houses some of the most famous works of art in the world, including the Mona Lisa. It should definitely be on your bucket list. 

Jennifer is carrying the Karina Backpack in Patina Coated Linen Canvas in the European Map print.

The 1st arrondissement is also teeming with wonderful shops, restaurants, and cafes. The Fontaine de la Nymphe Marine is located on the Place Andre-Malraux between the Rue Saint Honore and the Avenue de l'Opera in one of the most luxurious neighborhoods in the Paris. As you stroll along the charming streets of this neighborhood, be sure to take in the beauty of this fountain and also do a little people watching on this magnificent square.


The Roue de Paris looks especially grand at night. It is at the Place de la Concorde before the entrance to the Jardin des Tuileries. 


The Jardin des Tuileries is one of the loveliest gardens in Paris. It connects the Louvre Museum, the Musée d'Orsay, the Jeu de Paume Museum, and Place de la Concorde.  


Shopping is always a must. Here, Patricia is in one of her favorite bookstores. She is carrying the Kensie Crossbody in Quilted Denim.
