Dimanche 20 Janvier Salon International de la Lingerie
there may have been snow on the ground (really NY slush) but no one was deterred from showing up on Sunday for the Salon International de la Lingerie at Parc de Versailles.
And why not when luscious babes abound (unbound so to speak in their skivies).
Oh why did I ever eat all those Galette de Roi and buchette de Noel?
Cotton Lollipops be gone!
Remembrances of lingerie past on exhibit at the show tieing in with a new book out called what else? 'French Lingerie'
Be warned if you go next year. There will be dancing girls ahem.
Everyone wanted to see the Jolidon dancing girls and everyone wanted to see Chantal Thomass' new collection. I put my name on the list too. Dream on. Not a snowballs chance in Paris.
I have to admit French frou-frou isn't me. Being an artist I lounge around in comfortable cocooning type clothing. These 'Cuddly Socks from Taubert in Bavaria suit me to a T. And you could buy them at the souvenir counter.
All the staff at the Lingerie Salon were got up like snow fairies in head-to-toe outfits from Taubert that I would have happily bought off their back, especially the cute hats. I chatted with French-Brazilian J who dreams of coming to New York to work in lingerie of course.
I loved everything from British brand, Derek Rose - London, especially these silk polka-dot lounge trousers...yum
Son Sacha Rose showed me their clever tags with his dad's very serious picture on it - a hoot IMHO.
Another homeware line I would have been happy to take home was from Amsterdam - Pips Studio.
A fresh combination of vintage + wit that would be so fun to wear. Hello US. Buy this!
Enfin something French - Rue du Faubourg homeware and naturally in gris/grey
I'm posting this as a reminder to never eat anything again or maybe cut back on the sweets? So many pretty bods at the Salon. Does it have to come right after the excesses of the holidays? Be gone knives and forks!
