    Merci Concept Store // Paris.

    19th November

    And so we arrive to the final post about my recent trip to Paris for the Design Week. Today I’d like to tell you about my visit to Merci, a wonderful concept store in Le Marais. Chances are you’ve already seen a million photos from Merci, particularly of the iconic red Fiat in the courtyard which you can probably recognise in a heart beat even if you’ve never been there. There is definitely no shortage of crazy love and articles written about this retail gem. In fact, if you’ve ever consulted to any kind of Paris design guide, it is more than likely Merci was top of the list of places to visit. And there is a number of very good reason for this…

    Comme des Garçons “White Drama”, Cristóbal Balenciaga “Fashion Collector” & PGL by Pigalle // Les Docs, Paris.

    12th November

    Rei Kawakubo, the designer behind avant-garde Japanese fashion label Comme des Garçons, created an intriguing exhibition of her spring/summer 2012 collection titled “White Drama”. The exhibition showcased monochrome pieces from the collection, which magnified the four stages of life – birth, marriage, death, and transcendence. Kawakubo conceptualised the installation design and styled it in the same way as they appeared in her runway show – in giant clear plastic bubbles…

    Around Paris During The Design Week // 2012.

    6th November

    I was going through some of my Paris photos the other day, and I realised there were still a few gems I never got to tell you about. So I decided to bundle them all together in a post which is mostly related to Paris Design Week, but also the awesomeness of Paris in general (as a couple of the things I am sharing with you here are not related to the design week). Due to a huge amount of images which I always have such a hard time culling, I will bring you a couple of other posts focussing on different topics. So here goes…

    Barcelona Travel Guide | Places To Shop.

    8th November


    Well, well, well… I must admit that am both excited and a little bit sad to welcome you to this Travel Tuesday and the fifth and final post in the Barcelona Travel Guide Series.

    Like they say – all good things must come to an end, but before I get all emotional and shi… I mean stuff, let me just tell you about a few excellent places where you can spend you hard earned cash (or display restraint unknown to myself, and enjoy a good dose of window shopping, although that’s never as much fun, right?!)

    One thing to keep in mind when planning your day is that shop hours are approximately 10am – 1:30pm and 4:30pm to 7:30pm Mon – Fri (and Sat mostly am). And when I say approximately, I mean very approximately, as you need to give or take an hour to …

    1st November

    ¡Hola Y’all! Welcome back to Travel Tuesday and this fourth post in the Barcelona Travel Guide Series specially curated for you by yellowtrace. Hooray! Are you ready to hear about some fantastic places to eat and booze up in the fine city of Barcelona? Yes? Perfect – you’ve come to the right place. Let me just start this post by saying that the food in Barcelona (and Spain in general) is extremely awesome. And I mean extremely extreme awesomeness, freshness and deliciousness. You are pretty much guaranteed to have an excellent meal just about anywhere you eat.

    Most restaurants offer Menu del Dia (Menu of the Day) which typically includes an entree (soup or salad), main course with a side dish and dessert – all for one price. Menu del Dia is the most economical way to eat in Spain, and a great …
