It’s been a while since I posted the last post. I was focused on Instagram for a while. 😀 I have many travel pics to post. I’ll try to put them asap. (Follow me on instagram @this_is_duru)
We went to Boboli garden in Palazzo Pitti. The garden was exhibiting some sculptures by Italian sculptor Giuseppe Penone.
MERCI! It’s must know French word when you travel in France. This Parisian concept store is created by founders of Bonpoint. They brought together the best of fashion, design, and household items in the Haut-Marais district. The red vintage car, Merci‘s mascot is parked at the courtyard. Can’t pass without taking pictures. 😀
I dropped by kid store, Bonton. There are many cute clothes and kids party stuffs. I bought some paper envelops and plates for picnic.
GRAZIE! It’s must know Italian word when you travel in Italy. It means “Thanks” like Merci. This is an italian restaurant near by Merci. They offer yummy rustic-style pizzas and delicious cocktails. The whole atmosphere is in dark. Even toilet paper is also in black. 😀 Booking is essential to get a table.
This boulevard Beaumaarchais will be full of “Thanks” shops and restaurant in many other languages, I guess.
Anyway, waiting a bus to move to Seine river. See you on Seine!
I went to Japanese artist, Kusama Yayoi exhibition at Hangaram Gallery. She is famous for dot repetition. She collaborated on a collection with Louis Vuitton in 2012. Most of her works is in psychedelic colors, repetition and pattern. It was fun to participate in her installation with four different dot stickers.
We had a lunch at french brasserie, Masion de la Categorie. This awesome restaurant was designed by Adam D.Tihany. They offer breads in a paper bag to keep them warm. The food was delicious but I prefer to have coffee time at terrace. I love their macaron and eclaire.
I went to showcase of fashion brand YESIMFRENCH F/W 2014. The designer Sandra Meynier Kang is french but lives in Seoul. So this collection is inspired from Paris-Seoul(Paris to Seoul, vice versa). I love short jackets and metallic clutches. Especially, Marble print idea is awesome. Marble is not only for floor and table any more, we can also wear it from this fall! And I had a chance to take picture with Brad, drummer of indie band Busker Busker.
I needed the helmet for my safety but I didn’t like bicycle helmets because all looked so ugly on me. I have been trying years to find a good one for me. Finally, I’ve got new helmet from Vespa! Actually, this helmet is for motorbike or horse-riding. But for my bicycle and me it was the answer, I can even use it as a bag. I’m so happy to find it! 😀
Anyway ride and small picnic on han river with my new helmet.
Korean sunglasses brand Gentle Monster shop just opened! Black submarine in the shop… automatic mirror door(looks like a wall)… The exterior and interior design are very unique. I tried every sunglasses to find good one for me.
I went to Hiroshi Sugimoto’s exhibition at Leeum. I could see a wide range of his art from the late 1970s to the present. It was fun to experience his long exposure idea in front of his famous theater.
