Leather Jacket: Forever 21
In Paris I had the chance to visit Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, which is a high class department store. This place is literally fashion heaven on earth. They carry every designer you could ever imagine. My father’s classically parisienne girlfriend was so excited to spend the weekend with me, and she made it a must to take to Le Bon Marché for view the Villa Sacai Exhibition. We slowly but surely made our way to the second floor, but on the way up we stopped at different departments just to “window shop”. The products of different designers and creators were so alluring, I felt I had broken my neck just twisting and turning, because I wanted to buy the whole store. I fell in love with makeup, clothes, perfumes, handbags (especially Celiné and Prada), also the handsome young men that greeted me at different departments.
Finally getting to the second, my breath was taken away walking into the Villa Sacai Exhibiton. The exhibition is the collection of the Japanese designer and creator Chitose Abe. It is a collection for both women and men, and it captivates viewers with refreshing bright colors such as green, pink, purple, blue, and much more. Each article of clothing was strutted exquisitely, and the textiles were to dye for. I was happy to witness fashion as artwork, and I was more appreciative of my fathers girlfriend for introducing me to my new favorite luxury department store Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche. I was given the opportunity to have a special mini tour with one of the curators. I learned, I lived, and I loved, and I think that is what Paris is all about.
