Need a Fashion Fix?

Here is a small selection of my last visit to the press days, where as always it is a pleasure to meet with the press office teams, discovering the new collections. And guess what? The spring-summer 2015 will definitely be colorful or won’t be!

Let’s start with the beautiful yellow tuxedo jacket and trousers of Zadig & Voltaire (picture above)! Their catalog for next season is great (on last picture, the cover).

On the photo montage below: No. 2 and No. 3, the brand’s rock spirit associated with a breath of fresh air! Kudos for the shawl! No. 1, beautiful Wouters & Hendrix big silver necklaces to match with very thin golden chains, or/and rings and bracelets.

No. 4: the talented nail artist, Elfi De Bruyn, applied Pronails polish on my nails at the Swatch opening store. My first time with sparkles on nails, lol! The bracelet is from the French brand Luz.

At Longchamp, I keep the rock spirit 

with the stunning Pliage Héritage Luxe (picture below). Yes, elected by my humble me-myself-and-I (lol): “Object of Desire” for next season! Another favorite: the Madballs Pliage by Jeremy Scott for Longchamp this winter 2014.

If you like the Pliage, over 30 million bags sold worldwide, I recommend you the little book “Le Pliage by Longchamp” of Laure Verchère (Assouline).

On the photo montage below: No. 2 and No. 3, bicolor sandals/espadrilles and handbag, Longchamp. No. 1, at the Swatch event, I discovered this new natural drink (blackcurrant juice I guess?) and the latest Swatch collection.

Don’t worry, I will complete with boards on my Pinterest this small preview of spring-summer 2015 upcoming trendsI didn’t have time to go to all press offices where I was invited (sorry!), because the same day in the morning, I had a recruitment test.

Besoin d’un fashion fix?

Voici une petite sélection de ma dernière course/visite aux journées presse, où comme toujours c’est un plaisir de rencontrer les équipes des bureaux de presse, en découvrant les nouvelles collections. Et devinez quoi? Le printemps-été 2015 sera résolument coloré ou ne sera pas!

Dans le désordre, chez Zadig & Voltaire : veste de smoking et pantalon jaune canari, suis fane (photo ci-dessus)! D’ailleurs leur catalogue pour la saison prochaine est top (dernière photo).

Sur le photo-montage ci-dessous, photos n°2 et n°3, l’esprit rock de la marque associé à un vent de fraîcheur! Coup de coeur pour le châle! Côté bijoux, je reste accro à Wouters & Hendrix, grosses chaînes argentées associées à de fines chaînes dorées (n°1). Mais aussi des bagues et bracelets très fins.

N°4 : pose vernis Pronails par la talentueuse nail artist, Elfi De Bruyn, à la soirée Swatch. Ma première avec des brillants sur les ongles, lol! Bracelet aux formes géométriques, Luz.

Chez Longchamp, je conserve l’esprit rock 

avec le superbe modèle Pliage Héritage Luxe (ci-dessous). Oui, élu par mon humble personne (lol) : “Object of Desire” de la saison prochaine! Autre coup de coeur : le Madballs Pliage réalisé par Jeremy Scott pour Longchamp cet hiver 2014.

Si vous aimez le sac Pliage, plus de 30 millions d’exemplaires vendus dans le monde, je vous recommande le petit livre Le Pliage par Longchamp de Laure Verchère aux éditions Assouline.

Sur le photo-montage ci-dessous : n°2 et n°3, sandales-espadrilles et sac à main bicolores, Longchamp. N°1, la soirée Swatch, où j’ai découvert cette nouvelle boisson naturelle (au cassis je crois?) et montre de la dernière collection Swatch.

Voilà pour ce petit aperçu des prochaines tendances du printemps-été 2015 que je compléterai par des boards sur mon Pinterest. Je n’ai pas eu le temps d’aller voir tous les bureaux de presse où j’étais invitée (sorry!) : le même jour, dans la matinée, je passais un test de recrutement.

Dinner at The Michelin Starred L’And Restaurant

The L’And Restaurant Successful Mix of Design, Food and Wine

The restaurant of the L’And Vineyards in Alentejo (Portugal) is a somewhat magical place “Outstanding-Nature-Resort!” I had the chance to dine with a friend and meet the Michelin starred Chef Miguel Laffan there.

As I didn’t know what to choose, I asked the chef to help me. He recommended me to take the Tasting menu with 6 dishes (yes 6 as the Number 6 in The Prisoner)! Too much for me!

The Chef tries to convince me: the portions are small. Okay let’s try the tasting menu, but only with some Pedras Salgadas, one of my favorite sparkling waters. To be honest, I like to taste wines only during a visit to a vineyard, more out of curiosity than greed.

Bon appetit!

Gourmet or not: you can’t remain indifferent to this creative cuisine that subtly combines exotic flavors and Portuguese tradition. Here in order, the photo montage (above): 1. The appetizers with the excellent Portuguese regional products: olive oil, Pata Negra, pepper salad and cheese.

2. The divine “Portugaise bouillabaisse with pan fried crayfish and oyster “croquette.” I don’t like oysters, but I found the oyster croquette delicious ! Luckily I never really look the menu! LOL!

3. “Tuna fish tataki in a mille feuilles with a red onion compote and mango chutney, radish, coriander and bergamot salad.” Should I add something? Ah yes the presentation! So important for a photographer. The food is as beautiful to see as delicious to eat.

4. “Red mullet and squid stew “açorda” with a seaweed and fennel dashi.” Awesome if you enjoy fish!

I ask the Chef Miguel Laffan what his favorite ingredient:

He answers without hesitation: “a good company” (pictured below). And it is in good company I continue this tasting … that never ends, lol! I confess: as exceptional as are the dishes I’m not be able to eat more after the fourth dish!

On the second photo-montage (above): 1. The incredibly soft “roasted tenderloin pig from Alentejo slowly, cauliflower gratin with asparagus, peas and black pudding sausage. ” 4. The wines, including those of The And Vineyards. 

The desserts: 2. “White and black chocolate tiramisu with mascarpone and pistachio cream, cherries in kirsch syrup and coffee ice cream” and 3. “Sweet carrot duet over pistachio crumble with saffron and fresh ginger foam and honey ice cream.” I’m not really a dessert person, I’m more salty than sweet, but the colorful lively presentation is an invitation to taste.
