This Dream Is Real

As many of you know, I am a big, big fan of H&M collaborations – but this news is on another scale! If anyone were to ask me what my dream H&M collaboration would be, I can tell you without a moment of hesitation, I would say Isabel Marant. Having just been announced a few days ago, I am still processing that it is actually happening. Available on November 14th, I will be buying half the collection seeing as it will likely be the first and last time I will afford it again. Are you all as excited as I am?

Love x

Saint Laurent’s pre-fall collection juxtaposed with imagery from the new Paris flagship store. So beautifully edited…

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.

Love Jemmi x

Working from home today enjoying the magical scent of my new Diptyque Baies candle – birthday present from N + T. Not something I can ever justify buying for myself, but my absolute favourite luxury! Thanks you two x

I have my lovely London-based sister to thank for this latest post. With a finger firmly on the pulse, she excitedly told me about the launch of & Other StoriesH&M’s latest endeavour. With interesting silhouettes, clean lines, and a design edge that is rare among retailers of this size, I can see this becoming an exciting and different mainstay on the retail front. And the real triumph – the shoes!! What are your thoughts? x

P.s. Thanks to all of you for your lovely comments recently. It makes blogging so rewarding!
