You know the pink mirror that everyone always takes mirror pictures with at Pigalle Hotel in Paris? As much as I admire Ettore Sottsass’ work, I wasn’t too big fan of it. Until now, when I came across to this photo above. Would be a perfect contrast in the old Paris apartments.
Also I’m very excited for the approaching weekend. There will be an Ettore Sottsass exhibition at Gallery Downtown in Paris starting on Friday and Fiac, a contemporary art fair, starting tomorrow.
If you are visiting Paris and you have time only for one, go for Musée Rodin. Perfect sunday treat.
I visited the recently opened Balenciaga store at Avenue Montaigne and I must say they did a pretty good job with the new store concept including mannequins by Mark Jenkins. The space communicates about the new image of Balenciaga, but it’s also fairly easy to change when all the hype is over.
Last weekend I visited a place I’ve wanted to go already for a while. Fondation Jean Arp is Jean Arp’s home and atelier turned into a museum and it was perfect location for a calm sunday stroll. Fondation Jean Arp, 21 Rue des Châtaigniers, 92140 Clamart

I had a very interesting discussion with a friend of mine about routines , which gave a theme for my september moodboard. I’ve always enjoyed developing new routines to increase productivity in the everyday life. However, as we become blind for our habits, this month I want to dedicate for re-thinking all of them, whether I’m still in control of them or if they are leading my day. As much as I enjoy my morning coffee, I don’t want my day to be ruined without it.
Autumn always has this great energy for thinking things outside of the box. I’ll try to make the most of it with by trying new recipes, planning outfits from my existing wardrobe, absorbing ideas and giving second chances. It’s all about keeping mind open for possible new favourite things, that may end up being part of your routines.
David Hockney – Pink Hose, May 1974
Céline Pre-Fall 2017
I finally went to see the David Hockney retrospective today at Pompidou and I was really impressed by some of his works I’ve never seen before, especially video installations. Anyway, the Pink Hose photograph instantly reminded me of this Céline lookbook image. It’s not even the first time I’m juxtapositioning David Hockney and Céline.

Since I received couple emails regarding my recommendations for a short trip to Paris (how exciting!) , I decided to create a small guide of all my favourites which will be ready soon. Meanwhile, if I had only one evening, I would spend it at Pompidou’s modern art collection at the 5th floor, which also gives you a great view over Paris.
Kazuo Shiraga – Suiju, 1985
Currently I’m obsessed with the flowy layering done at Céline SS2017 collection with the trousers. Also I’ve been spotting Japanese painter Kazuo Shiraga’s artwork in different exhibitions and got very inspired by his way of working and capturing the movement.
This moodboard maybe reflects a bit my longing for the sea breeze.

David Hockney – John St Clair Swimming, April 1972
This weekend we are planning to find a swimming pool in Paris and I’m planning to wear nothing else but my best jewellery. Another great way to tackle the heat in Paris is recently opened David Hockney exhibition in Centre Pompidou.
