Choices, choices. A stay in Paris is never long enough and one has to be flexible with plans. The weather was beautiful which meant that we spend a lot of time just sitting outdoors, little bars and brasseries, taking in all that passed us by. My brain felt like the Satorialist. One of the choices that had to be made was visiting the Hermès exhibition at the Institut du Monde Arabe or the Yves Saint Laurant Exhibition at the Petit Palais. I am a fan of both so we flipped a coin.
The Hermes Exhibition honours brilliant Leïla Menchari, who has been for many years the inspiration behind the outrageously beautiful window displays of the Hermès store at 24 Rue Faubourg Saint Honoré. I was not allowed to take photo's inside but the bill board and orange entrance way were photogenic enough already! Sorry Yves I missed you but I have your wedges to wear. What would you have chosen if you would have been in my wedges :) Yves ou Hermès!
More about Paris tomorrow!
