PARIS — The City of Lights

PARIS — The City of Lights

Thousands of lights lining monuments, bridges and the 20,000 light bulbs on the Eiffel Tower transform Paris into “The City of Lights,” and the nighttime vibe of the city inspires this vitrine. Photos, furniture, a leather tote and a scintillating evening gown are the perfect elements to help you enjoy the city.

Paris’ monuments and in particular the Eiffel Tower are recreated on the “Bazar Paris Small Printed Textured-leather Tote.” The bag on offer from luxury fashion house Balenciaga is designed by Demna Gvasalia and is created to mimic a souvenir shop holdall. The Eiffel Tower is printed onto the textured leather exterior while its size is perfectly suited for carry-on luggage. 

Experiencing the best of fine dining and exquisite French cuisine in Paris requires the right dress and the “’90s Signature Red Gown” is one such offering. Created by Italian luxury brand Valentino, the silk dress is a vintage offering and features an open back with crossover detailing, while ruffles enhance the front. In the “Rue Auber, Paris” photograph from Gail Albert-Halaban, a section of buildings along a Paris street are captured with pigment print. The shot provides a slice of a life on a street from a window and is typical of Albert-Halaban’s work.  Red wine is an essential component of fine dining in Paris and the “Ferraton Père & Fils : Le Parvis 2013” comes with complex aromas of cherry and plums, and it is perfect for pairing with lamb and poultry. 

Haute couture forms an integral part of city and the “Yves Saint Laurent” book from the Yale University Press shines the spotlight on the work of the famed fashion designer. The book features 200 stellar designs created by Yves Saint Laurent along with fascinating insights by Paloma Picasso-Lopez and others. French furniture is world famous and the “19th Century Louis XV Style Side or Dining Chairs” from Timothy Langston Fine Art & Antiques come with Rococo lines that were typical of Louis XV designs. The chairs have rich blue Claremont fabric that contrast beautifully with the painted frames.

Exploring Paris during the day or night is easy when wearing comfortable shoes and the “Sculpture Black Leather Pointed Toe Heels” from luxury brand WtR is one such offering. The black shoe with a 10.5 cm heel comes with a “geometric” twist and is perfectly suited for both office and party wear.
