LETTERS FROM PARIS: JANUARY

IMG_0331

 

In this cold January weather in Paris, we are dreaming of cosy alpine chalets and escaping off to warmer places. Chocolat chaud and hot whiskey consumption levels are rising and the new year is starting to take shape on TrésorParisien. Before plunging right in… I thought I would take time for a little contemplation and a trip down TrésorParisien’s 2012 memory lane…

And what a year it’s been…

2012 began with a zesty new year breakfast and sipping ginger tea Chez Claus. Catching the Parisian coffee wave we spent Saturday mornings scouring the city for the best coffee. “On the coffee trail” became  the Saturday morning vibe which led us to siphons at Coutume, coffee & croissants at de Flore and ice-coffee and granola chez Télescope. Not bad for a morning’s work?

Seeking style notes and inspiration, we hit the streets to capture looks, styles and details. From the catwalk to the cafés we kept our eyes peeled for the sartorial style stars…and all those little details to LOVE...

For weeks in March it was raining cats & dogs, so it was time to get umbrella chic at Alexandra Sojfer. In the heat of the Summer we found the perfect city escape chez Merci. Beating the Parisian moods was all part of the fun…

It was fashion February to say the least…

Falling under the spell of his celtic charms, we met with creative director and the Irishman behind the New York fashion label THEIA, Don O’ Neil. Catching a glimpse of his stunning catwalk presentation here in Paris “we were empowered” by his his classic and modern twist of the little black dress.

Looking for inspiration to decorate the Parisian pad, we stumbled upon India Mahdavi’s new boutique and scoured les puces and vintage stores for hidden vintage gems. This brought us to the queen of vintage herself,  Gabriel Geppert.  Gigi was “born Vintage”…and that takes some beating!

Then back to style and new addresses, we spent a day with the stylish Parisian gal Lauren Kennedy Malpas who shared her take on Autumn Paris style in the trendy area of the 10th. For more elements of style, we got a whole new perspective on Chloé at the Palais du Tokyo.

There was a lot of patisserie pleasures and no turning back from the almond croissants at Sébastien Gaudard.

Looking back, it’s been fun.

I would like to thank all of you who have taken the time to meet with us, snapped wonderful photography, collaborated with us, read our posts, made comments, joined the network, or were involved in any way.

Here’s to a great year in 2013 and I am looking forward to sharing, more inside tips, great addresses and more inspiring discoveries from the heart of Paris.
