Paris offers a glimpse into another world, a world of romance and sensuality. Coming from the airport, we drive along the Avenue into the city sparking my senses into overload launching a thousand fantasies. A city that delights more with each visit; it is like being on an endless treasure hunt.

A Salute to one of our greats-one of the many that were inspired by the provocative gestures that reference the complexity of life, the mysteriously creative, no less than it’s just do.

Love Lock Bridge in the shadow of Pont de l’Archeveche. Parisians are in love with love. The bridge is purely romantic. It wouldn’t be a weekend without a stroll through the Jardin des Tuileries. It inspired the collection.

The city that launches a thousand fantasies is also home to another kind of delight; dazzling works of art and architecture by some of the great masters. Heart lurching sightings of the Bastille, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower reminded me I couldn’t be anywhere but Paris.

Winding down a hidden alley on the way to our restaurant where a chapel dating back to the 1500’s presents in all it’s glory. Everywhere we ate, we found a respect for ingredients, presentation, and service. Career waiters; only in Paris.
