New Collector's Edition inserts

I am very happy and excited to introduce this new line of bag inserts today: The Collector's Edition comes in a fresh new look in which the plain linen of the base-line is replaced with beautiful and vibrant fabrics from the internationally renowned French fabric house Manuel Canovas. 

Sourcing this fabric has been a lot of fun, and having combed the showrooms of the best and most amazing textile designers in Paris has left me wanting to re-decorate my entire house!

Hoping that you love these inserts as much as I do, and wishing you a wonderful Sunday xxx 

The insert's exteriors, as well as their inner pockets, come in a striking printed linen (Bagatelle), and are perfectly matched with refined and durable Canovas cottons for the interior. The Collector's Edition inserts are made with the same MaiTai Collection signature details as the baseline: exquisite embroidery and distinctive, high-quality French crafsmanship.

Available for: Kelly 28/32, Birkin 25/30/35, Lindy 30/34 and Garden Party 39/36

Outer fabric and pockets: 100% linen
Lining: 100 % cotton

New scarf ring collection and FSH window inspiration

I am incredibly excited and happy to launch a new collection of reversible scarf rings today. It's been a long work process to achieve perfection, and I couldn't be more pleased with the result.  The new rings are available in all three Classique ring sizes (Petite, Moyenne and Grande) and come with a gold or silver plated metal base. If you click here, you can see the collection and different color combinations. More colors to follow in the months to come!

Our summer has been long and hot, which is why I am all the more excited for the scarf season to approach and to post an autumn blog. Also, perfect timing to introduce the new scarf rings!  The outfit and scarf combinations below are inspired by the current fall windows at Hermes in Paris and pictures of nature I take when walking the dogs ( in the Southern French countryside. 

For now, it is only our nights and mornings that are wonderfully fresh and cool, it still gets summery and hot in the daytime. The clothes I am wearing are therefore still quite light... if you live in a cooler climate just imagine them with long sleeves!
