There are only a few things in this world that can evoke an overwhelming sense of bliss; like taking a dip in lukewarm turquoise waters set against clear skies, or chancing upon a first pressed copy of Masta Ace’s ‘A Long Hot Summer’ at a record store behind an alley. It didn’t take long for us to realise waking up in a different city invited a feeling not far off from that either. With a day full of scheduled appointments ahead of us, we wasted no time admiring the architectural elements sitting outside the balcony and instead starting sorting out our agenda for Paris Fashion Week.
Amid the busy streets of Champs-Élysées, accompanied by the aromas of a Parisian classic picked up at a local roaster situated just around the corner, the cup of café crème in hand was the only source of warmth within a kilometre radius that we could find. Gliding through the streets of Paris, you can hear the chatter of people dressed in layered outerwear with their eyewear donned, chairs turned out facing the street. We eventually found ourselves greeted by barnhouse wood, outside the doors of Maurizio Amadei’s showroom.
Despite being greeted by the black matte metal doors outside Ann Demeulemeester‘s showroom, we were delighted to see the stark contrast of the bright fluorescent lights coupled with the exquisite gold and sterling silver jewellery. Crafted in organic forms depicting leaves and clovers, revealing the theme for Demeulemeester’s collection this season.
