social graces

mobile_picturephoto thanks media.
Two gifted sisters, Claudia Cardinale and sister Blanche, I met both, I used to invite Claudia who now will be the president of Cannes film festival 2017 to attend the Emanuel Ungaro Haute Couture shows. The fist one she came in for me was the show we did at Salle Wagram near Place de l'Étoile à Paris. I remember a simple lady, I asked her if she needed a stretch limo to drive her to the show venue she answered me : no, I lived near by place des Ternes, she told me and when she arrived she was sporting a full length sable coat. Blanche her late sister as beautiful and glamour but none-the-less very human like Claudia, worked as a PR at Ungaro with me. #ungaro, #cannesfilmfestival2017, #claudiacardinale, #hautecouture, #sallewagram, #blanchecardinale, #cannes

Les lampes font leur entrée

mobile_picturephoto roberto.
Une lampe spectaculaire rend votre entrée plus intéressante. Et j'aime les lampes, J'en suis zinzin, depuis l'âge de 12/13 ans j'en achète surtout des lampes design mais aussi vintage, rarement anciennes. Je les achètent et j'en revends, comme ce très rare lampadaire de Gras Ravel ayant appartenu à Eileen Gray qui habitait près de chez moi à deux mètres de la sublime place Saint Sulpice, Paris Rives Gauche, pas sur ce doc. toutefois.rmf #designlamp, #doorway, #moderdesign, #light

La Durée, the most wonderful yet delicious macaron

The best treat while in Saint Germain des Prés? Probably La Durée ! No doubt...The sister tearoom of La Durée, rue Royale à Paris, with a Napoleon III atmosphere like Marcel Proust's unique memory research novel Le Temps Retrouvé. Among the most authentic macaroons in Paris, let's admit it the first one ...The location will catter you a nice lunch too.

The "shoe tiptoe pic" is my personal view of how you mix shoes, socks on special (or not) occasions. Details are : a pair of green casentino slim legs slacks, one pair of xtra soft cotton Paul Smith multico polka dots socks, and a jolly good pair of sturdy pelle del Val di Sieve bespoke patina Oxfords

Liberty Statue, yes! NEW YORK? No! But TOKYO, Jp

mobile_pictureOdaïba Aquacity photo Roberto. This statue of Liberty is not in NYC it's in Tokyo. The first time I went to Tokyo, it was the last century, the XXth tho, tokyoïtes how frenchies call the hugest city in Japan denizen, had no place to go on weekends near the sea. Odaïba was created from nothing it's 100% artificial but you can surf, sunbathe on a sand beach, it's an in-town micro resort. The surprise next to futuristic looking buildings surely i s this statue which I founf very "exotic" there.

Montblanc les stylos d'exception

mobile_picturea moment of skill ! Yes writing is so posh now everyone is texting it's banal though. "filling up my ink pen" Un luxe à porter de main. It's the perfect french colloquial to say true luxury is within our reach, considering a Montblanc pen is the equivalent of an Aston Martin, a pen~a car! You may want to be starting with an ink pen from Montblanc it's a good start, the pen is gold and platinium sure you have to learn about how to manipulate the ink pump in the ink pot, how to wash your pen at least 2 to 4 times a year depending of the use, but it's worth it, mines are engraves with initials. photo Roberto
