Paris by Zip Code is like smelling a flower and knowing exactly what it looks and feels like.
6ème is Saint-Germain and Jardin du Luxembourg the color is dark green, the 1rst arrondisement smack in the middle, it feels like you are flying, the 4ème is gay, fun, good food, drunk, dark and poetic in the night, 18ème is Africa and wax get your hair done, stock up on fabrics, magical get lost places and Porte de Clignancourt les Puces de Saint-Ouen. And the 11ème La Bastille the opéra the Seine river the light and Chez Paul.
Which Zip Code makes you Tic?

It's personal, it always is personal.
Having worked years with CHANEL who never went on sale, I never thought I would either. But there was the notorious secret Sample Sale to look forward to. I always loved sample sales, Vivienne Westwood, Comme des Garçons, Helmut Lang I attended them all with my heart beating to every glorious second of it. I now welcome you to my Sample Sale section in my Etsy shop and it is here to stay. Sample bags will be added throughout the year, some have been on photo shoots some have been hanging about in my studio. As all samples go they have lived and hung around for a while, just the way we like them.
All bags are priced at $25 + shipping but you only pay shipping once all other bags are sent for free with your order.
Having said all of this I now must return to my studio and listen to more loud music and get on with it.
Kind regards from France,
Catching up a bit late, lots to do, lots ahead. We are busy sorting out LeHovel a safe haven for friends and family. It's a labour of love, thankful for every moment I can spend there, it will sleep 6 when it is fully restored and furnished.
If I meet you in Paris or I know you or you want to know me, and I invite you please feel free to stay for a while with us here in the French country side. Bring your bikes and books, relax and be happy.
Lots of Love from France xx
Our strange French summer has almost hit the curve, almost I say only because today the last day of the month feels strangely summer picture perfect. The colors are vibrant, the garden smells intensely green, dragonfly's all over our grapevines, the pond overflowing with zen beauty.
I am preparing for November, busy as a bee can be.
But first there will be October coming with lush and beautifully made in France scarf's and bags.
Oh, October is tomorrow then... bring it on I am ready!
Love from France,
* the September scarf pictured is on its way to the USA

August started with a bang here in Normandy France, all I see and want is the colour blue.
My daughters favourite colour, the colour of her eyes.
My good friend Nyssa inspires me with her beautiful feed on her Instagram account, slashes of blues, whites and black, straight from the heart, from her roots, it's deep playful and light like a vibrant plant.
She came up with the ART EXILE tote, I executed it in blue since blue vibrates more then any other colour this month for me.
We have some lovely vintage straw bags in our store. This months heart racing bracelets are from CHACHAWAX in blue and grey tones just what the doctor ordered.
See more pictures of LISA (@lisahill1314 on Instagram) in my Gallery section, she came over and played with my new scarf in the garden. Oh, and she has powder blue hair right now, who knew? Life is fantastic when it all comes together.
