Rue de Sevrès - Koto Bolofo booksigning 'La Maison'

The vibrant and playful window of the Rue de Sevrès store could not have been in bigger contrast to the rich decor displayed at FSH, but of course much in tune with the colorful and lively atmosphere of the 6th arrondissement the store is located in.

Last Tuesday night, the boutique hosted Koto Bolofo's 'La Maison' booksigning event,

it was a truly fun and fabulous evening

Meeting the artist was more than special, I so much admire his work
Koto Bolofo

About ten of the book's 1000+ photos were on display throughout the store, on simple yet beautiful easles. One of my favorites is a portrait of Jean-Claude Ellena, creator of Hermès parfums ( the 'Hermesessence' line amongst many others ) since 2004.

The host of the evening, Pierre-Alexis Dumas, Hermès' creative director

It could not have been a more fun and lovely event, merci!

  1. How exciting it must have been, my dear MaiTai!
    The shop at Rue de Sèvres is beautiful and perfect for an event like that.

  2. Thank you for sharing, dear MaiTai!

  3. It is good our H knows so good who to invite to their events. If I had been present, the title in Le Monde next day would be "Scandal at Hermes event", whereas subtitle would say "Mr. Dumas was approached by the lady desperately begging him to reissue Carre en Carre scarf in whichever colour combo. She continued explaining her passion for that scarf, as well as for Pani La Shar Pawnee carre 90 in olive green tones, she was dreaming daily about; it is considered one of the most inappropriate behaviours noted at any Hermes events so far and it obviously shocked everyone." There is no need to describe the person in the text of that article, LOL.

    Hope you enjoyed your Paris trip. Hugs, Lilian

    ladyjane, I wore all black (jumping boots, jeans, sleeveless rollneck sweater and Birkin) with a mustard colored coat and Grand Apparat enamel bangle. It is curious that this was one of the very rare occasions where I ended up not wearing a scarf, but the outfit felt just right the way it was.
