Whilst Summer is approaching for those lucky readers (and the Clare of this blog) in the southern hemisphere, we are begrudgingly awaiting the onset of Winter here in London. So I thought I’d share one of my favourite labels for winter warmers, Sessun. This lovely french brand knows how to do simple with a twist very, very well and that’s exactly why I’ve just bought my new winter coat from them.

At least I have one thing to look forward to once the temperatures start dropping!

When my email popped up saying Merci had launched it’s online store, the hellish tube ride to work quickly vanished from my mind. Instead, memories of my last trip to Paris came flooding back – to be specific, stumbling into Merci and quite truly believing I’d found heaven in a shop!

So much more than a shop, Merci has heart  –  and a very big one too – combining luxury consumerism and philanthropy by donating all profits to education and development projects in Madagascar. The owners simply wishing to pay it forward and say – “MERCI to life!”

While being French is almost a guaranteed pass on the style front, Merci could exist anywhere in the world and still take your breath away.

If like me, you don’t live a train ride away from Paris (just let me gloat!) then Merci online is a far more accessible option; opening up a world of linens, Merci medallions, ridiculously stylish plates and bowls, oh the list could go on!  Admittedly, it doesn’t quite capture the true amazingness of the Marais store, but it does give you a pretty good taster.

Rondini Bikini

I would seriously consider planning my holiday around getting me some Rondini sandals… Thankfully the store is in St Tropez so I really wouldn’t mind…

All Alone And No One To Be With

I am so captivated by this shoot, shot by Nikolay Biryukov on the pebbly beaches of Normandie, France. In this homage to red, model Adeline Jouan wears a wardrobe of crimson and scarlet against a setting of cool greys and turquoise. Breathtaking x
