PRECIOUS OBJECTS | FEBRUARY 2016

Let’s set the record straight, a business trip that routes you + your passport to the City of Light, should hardly be considered business. This February, the official month of love + affection, had us pining for a Precious Objects post dedicated to all things French stemming from our recent sojourn to the capital of romance, Pa-reeeeeee. France, a country where a passion for its people (and don’t forget the pastries) runs as deep as the sea, does not disappoint when it comes to inspiration.

The prized jewel of our souvenirs, a pair of antique Kaléidoscope lithographs snagged at the renowned Marché aux Puces. Circa 1925, by French artist Maurice Pillard Verneuil, the colors are vibrant, and in our mind, as radiant as the day the were pulled off the presses; patterns so relevant and fresh, (cue the J.Crew F/W ’16 Collection + this retro pantsuit), they beg for the tagline, ‘ahead of their time’. If you followed along on our #tgltravels, you may recall our discovery instant love affair with French-based eyewear brand, Jimmy Fairly. If Warby + Toms had a lovechild, JF would surely be it. Stylish + affordable, philanthropic + adorable. Who needs cliché keychains when you can bring sophisticated sunnies home in your carryon? Looking for a place to rest your head in a manner all-things-chic? Head straight to Hôtel Bachaumont in the 2ème, where a recent refresh brought this boutique hotel back to modern magnificence. (Much more on that still to come, because you know we love a renovation that leaves discerning travelers with nothing less than a win-win in lodging and accommodation.)

Last, but most certainly not least, our favorite Francophile back in the states. Clare Vivier, whose adoration for Parisian charm leaves no outfit untouched when it comes to accessorizing in style. CV’s new Madras Weave mini screams ‘spirit of the summer’ – we’re already mentally making outfits with this cutie of a clutch in tow. Now if we could just rid the Northeast of these ridiculously beyond-freezing temps…
