In recent weeks, I find myself inspired by the extraordinary stories and achievements of friends and colleagues here in Paris. Young French women who have started their own businesses, who, facing the toughest of weeks, set their emotions and fears aside to push ahead with their business initiatives.
I see their achievements and strength as small acts of courage, the sparks of possibility and inspiration that in times like this, sparkle deeply. I feel now more than ever that their achievements and those close to us deserve special attention. So this month, I would like to celebrate these young Parisians, whose stories, life perspectives and businesses continue to bring sparks of brilliance into our lives. We have so much to celebrate…
The New Nubio Atelier
Claire & Gabrielle, founders of the organic cold pressed juice company Nubio Paris, have just opened their new atelier in the 11e. All their juices, almond milks and granola are made in the lab of the new atelier. As well as loving all of their organic products, I am continuously inspired by the health and wellness initiatives surrounding their brand. This month, I will be stocking up on their chocolate almond milk and new gluten-free granola from La Grande Epicerie for weekend breakfast treats.
La Nouvelle Boutique Ysé
The fabulous founders behind the French lingerie brand Ysé, Clara and Bérengère have just opened their first boutique in Le Marais. I love the décor, the style and ambience they have created in this beautiful intimate space in the heart of this vibrant quartier. The opening of the boutique allows us to get up close with the beautiful details and attention that goes into their elegant collections. Their lounge-wear collection is on my wish list for cosy evenings at home this month.
Heart Heart Heart
The lovely Iracema has recently launched her new scarf collection. Her scarves are truly like little works of art. If they weren’t so soft and so effortless to wear, I would consider framing them and displaying them on my wall. They’re so beautiful and the colours in her designs are warm and vibrant. I also love the fun hidden details (like the leopard and the palm trees in the image above). You really feel you have something special. They are softly unique, and each one is a limited edition. I don’t think I will be taking off my new heart x 3 this month.
Oh My Cream
The belle Juliette and her team of beauties have created the most beautiful beauty coffrets for the festive season. All my beauty and festive essentials in one box. I especially love the glittery nail varnishes by Kure.
Morgane Sezalory has also recently opened the doors to the new Sézane apartment. Filled with her stylishly effortless Parisian collections that we can’t get enough of, beautiful lifestyle products, classic accessories and vintage items from her travels. The doors of this dream Parisian apartment open again just in time for the launch of Sézane’s festive collection! (Launching online Sunday 29th Nov). This stunning collection will not only have us dreaming, but will put us in the festive mood for all that glitters…
