A Postcard from Paris

And a trip to the South of France

Hello friend,

Paris in springtime was our inspiration for this week’s newsletter and didn’t we transport ourselves there emotionally in the process! The music of Edith Piaf seems to be dancing in our heads; visions of the cobbled streets of Paris are emblazoned in our minds: the Eiffel Tower, the Tuileries, Champs Elysées, Nôtre Dame; Ah Paris, mon amour! 

Join us on our French journey with Paris-based model Jeanne Damas and her fabulously French fashion line Rouje; Meet Violette Serrat, the unstoppable and quintessentially French entrepreneur who matches your mood with a makeup colour palette; Refresh your home the way the French do with a centuries-old brand that keeps coming up roses; Learn about the classic rosé wines of the Tavel region in the south of France and pair it with a classic omelette from Nina Parker. Once you’ve made it, pour yourself a glass of wine and sit to watch the enthralling Apple TV series following the lives of Coco Chanel and Christian Dior during WWII in the French capital.   

À bientôt!

We bring you French girl style, courtesy of Jeanne Damas, a former model who is taking the Paris retail scene by storm. See the look we picked from Rouje.

Learn why the classic rosé wines of Tavel in the Cotes du Rhone are a French go-to, and why it goes perfectly with Nina Parker’s omelette. 

The perfect red lip. Who better to trust than French makeup guru Violette Serrat and her eponymous line of bold and beautiful cosmetics. Find out how she made a name for herself in the cosmetic industry.

Tried, tested and true. From generation to generation, this is the way the French approach home fragrance and it couldn’t be sweeter.

Through the terrors of wartime Paris the creative flames of fashion visionaries Coco Chanel and Christian Dior never went out.
