A Doll’s house

· Art, Fashion

There are a lot of interesting exhibitions in Paris at the moment : Today, we headed to le Palais de Tokyo to visit their new exhibition, the title of which can be translated as follows “Childhood : Another banana day for the dream-fish”.

What made me want to go? The childhood thematic for one, and this huge reconstruction of a doll house right at the entrance of the museum. I find the idea absolutely genius as a way to showcase a gateway to your childhood memories.

 

Back to childhood at le Palais de Tokyo

“A Doll’s house” by Amabouz Taturo

 

The exhibition takes you through a number of themes, a number of which are rather light and childish, others a bit more melancolic and harrowing, but all of which are enchanting, surprising and though provoking.

 

Sculptures by Tomaki Suzuki and “La porte de la désolation” by Clément Cogitore

 

“Abetare” by Petrit Halijaj

 

Here are some of the works we saw : I especially admired the ones by Tomoaki Suzuki with his tiny characters and Ugo Rondinone‘s set up with melancolic and idle clowns (no pictures allowed for this last one).

 

“Beasts and ourselves, of glasses” by Yuichi Yokoyama

 

Spice up their lives

Outfit-wise, a nod to childhood, with these heart-shaped sunnies that I longed for ever since I was a kid (finally got them!) and this tshirt I bought a month ago as a contribution to the “Red Nose Day” caritative action, that helps children in need.

Designed by Victoria Beckham, one of my favorite Spice Girls (I was team Baby and Posh!), it combines the useful and the pleasant, by harboring your love for your childhood band (well, teen for my part!). Have a nice week everyone! (English translation by Marine)

Remix in the city

· Fashion

After our walk close to the nature, without transition, here is an outfit in the middle of an urban environment with graphic lines.

I’ve posted less “Fashion” articles lately because as I was telling you, I wear the items I already have in my wardrobe so somehow wear more or less the same things the same way everyday, with different accessories.

Not a capsule wardrobe yet but it’s much easier to look into my closet and I must admit that it’s quite pleasant!

 

Anyhow, I wanted to show you this outfit worn last weekend: mostly made up with shades of beige/camel colors and green touches for the accessories.

Everything was already used except the pair of earrings and the sandals, which came as a replacement of those I wore when I visited the Tegalalang rice fields because they are really getting old. So I hope you will enjoy this new mix of clothes! (English translation by Quiterie)

Monet’s garden

· Art, Fashion, Travel

Last sunday, we spent a day away from the city, close to the nature, at Giverny in the heart of Claude Monet’s Garden.

 

The water garden

I already came once a few years ago but I don’t think I had seen as much luxuriance. This time was the ideal time to admire all the floral species and most beautiful vegetation.

Japonisms/ impressionisms

Apogee of perfection, the Museum of Impressionisms, also located at Giverny, currently hold an exhibition called “Japonisms/ impressionisms” or in other words, how the impressionist artists, including Claude Monet, who got influenced by Japanese art.

The exhibition also had one full floor dedicated to the Japanese artist Hiramatsu Reiji, who unveiled his own interpretation of the Water Lilies series. Such an eye candy.

… and my look

Such a beautiful day that could have been spoiled by the stormy weather, but fortunately none of this happened for the sake of my dress and myself.

Indeed, I took advantage of a nice discount on the MSR website to purchase this dress from Laurence Bras, ideal for summer temperatures with flowing and light coton.

I actually really like the natural and flowing clothes from this designer. Quite an investment indeed, but the comfort and the lightness of the rendering make me 100% satisfied. Have a great end of week! (English translation by Quiterie)
