Interior – Helicosm Cosmetics Shop – Paris

October 31, 2011 § Leave a comment

Location: Paris 1st Arrondissement

Designed by: FREAKS Freearchitects

The 100-sq-m store has an usual shape for a Parisian shop, as it stretches 20m long. A wood tunnel doubles as a shelving display and connects the main shop in front and a waiting room in the back.

‘The tunnel works as a theatre decorum into which doors and holes organize all the technical storage, access, restroom and extra display,’ explains Yves Pasquet of FREAKS freearchitects. At the end of the tunnel is a large image of mountains and a lake that brings the space into a parallel reality.

The cool mint hue covers the floor, walls and ceiling in the front room, wrapping guests with a refreshing – yet slightly uncomfortable – aesthetic. All furnishings were found in second-hand shops and markets, which Pasquet says was done to not ‘overly design’ the space.

With a budget of a mere €100,000 budget, we love this interior and it’s LAB feel. What do you interior lovers think?

Interior – Pop Store’s Little Trip To Paris

April 1, 2011 § Leave a comment

A very secretive buying trip for your favorite clothing brand took place this week in Paris. The trip was taken to find inspiring Parisian delights for a new studio somewhere far, far away. We became galvanized and a little plump on our search for all things yummy. We found a provenance of unique pieces that we just had to buy. Here are just a few of the stunning boutiques we stumbled upon along our way…

 

Merci

111 blvd Beaumarchais
Paris 75003

(+33) 01.42.77.00.33

A four-story boutique complex in the upper Marais that includes a florist shop, a used bookstore and treats for everyone from vintage clothing to one off interior accessories. Designers including Stella McCartney and Paul Smith offer customized versions of items from their collections at more accessible prices. The vibe is warm, mushy and makes you feel oh so at ease with spending your paper. An atmosphere that arouses such lavish consumption must be worth a look!

Les Mille Feuilles

2 Rue Rambuteau, 75003 Paris, France

‪(+33) 01.42.78.32.93 ‎

Another boutique filled with rich texture and cordial climate, was Les Mille Feuilles…

For the past 7 years Les Mille Feuilles has concentrated on having beautiful things with Pierre Brinton travelling the glove to find his ‘coup de coeur’ objects the place is a big curiosity cabinet full of different and heteroclite artifacts, all with a story to tell.

Ladurée

21 rue Bonaparte 75006 Paris, France

(+33) 01.44.07.64.87

Located in the Saint-Germain neighborhood, this famous store with the black storefront opened by Madeleine Castaing in 1947 at the corner of the rue Jacob and the rue Bonaparte, where many celebrities and artists met (Soutine, Chagall, Modigliani) now houses the new Ladurée tea salon.

With an impressive interior flushed with scents of heaven, Ladurée was a highlight for us, and l’attention to detail was incredible.

Macaroons

These small, round cakes, crisp on the outside, smooth and soft in the middle, are the most famous creation of Ladurée. The story of the Ladurée macaroon starts with Pierre Desfontaines, second cousin of Louis Ernest Ladurée, who at the beginning of the 20th century first thought of taking two macaroon shells and joining them with a delicious ganache filling.

Campaign – Mademoiselle – Chanel

Blake Lively for Chanel’s Mademoiselle campaign – your first look!

Following all those will-she-won’t-she attend the Chanel show rumours, Blake Lively landed in Paris over the weekend to unveil her first designer campaign for Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag line. At a dinner hosted by Karl Lagerfeld, the Gossip Girl starlet caught up with WWD to talk all manner of things, including why she isn’t interested in launching a fashion project of her own.

Blake says of the project – “I have such a respect for fashion and such an appreciation for it that if there are people like Karl Lagerfeld out there designing, who am I?” she asks. “I want to bow down to them and be a representative for them if they’ll have me”

Take a look at the happenings behind production and an example of the finished ad featuring Blake…

Pop Up Shop – Paris – Colette & Chanel

March 7, 2011 § Leave a comment

Location: 336-340 rue Saint-Honoré, Paris

Date: March 1st 2011 – March 10th 2011

From March 1st to 10th, two legendary addresses in the world of Fashion – CHANEL 31 rue Cambon and COLETTE 213 rue Saint-Honoré – will be blending their creative talent to open an ephemeral boutique at 336-340 rue Saint-Honoré. Stretching over 200 m², the boutique is set in the industrial surroundings of a former garage turned into a giant living display space.

The pop-up ‘love-in’ between a French house like Chanel and Parisian boutique Colette might sound like a odd coupling but Colette’s creative director Sarah Lerfel can be relied upon for being pretty much spot on when it comes to gauging synergies and collaborations hence why there’s always SOMETHING interesting going down at Colette during fashion week, hence why in general, there’s always a horde of people gathered in and around the eponymous boutique.

The happenings at this particular ‘pop-up’ celebrate unusual pairings and atmospheres that have similar juxtapositions to the way the Chanel pieces are styled in-store fusing new and old. Handbag customization and harpsichord performances are all integral features at this beautifully mixed up store.

Where Am I?
