"Fashion is so often presented in our culture as a thing of froth, which of course,
it partly is; but the bubbles are blown with such care and a sense of values."
- Anna Wintour

Merci Paris x

I've never seen a more inspiring concept store in all of Paris, all the world actually.
The name: MERCI. How suiting.

It was Collette meets IKEA meets Anthropolgie and then some...
The light, merchandising and selection was delicious.

Open concept warehouse space, enough natural light to have no artificial
and most importantly, discreet location and almost tourist free.

And of course, I discovered it a little too late.

Words, especially my own, simply don't do it justice.
But my photos, they work sometimes.


Then, to top it off, attached was the cafe out of my dreams.
French and English books wall to wall, antique chandeliers and damn good espresso.

Sleep and Other Poems

"What was beauty unless you intended to use it, like a hammer, or a key?
 It was just something for other people to use and admire, or envy, despise.
To nail their dreams onto like a picture hanger on a blank wall.
And so many girls saying, use me, dream me."
Janet Fitch, White Oleander

Elle est retrouvee
Quoi? L'Eternite
C'est la mer allee
Avec le soleil

Arthur Rimbaud- 1872

In A Manner Of Speaking

The more chaotic, the more beautiful. Quite simplicity is nice too.
Never understanding the order in which these photos fall, they just land. Face first.

I don't believe they ever reflect real feeling, just what caught my eye that day.
Perhaps the day before they would never have caught my eye.
Hence, consider them unique in their time and place, that's enough for me to I believe them special.
Worthy of five minutes. Maybe six.
