Busy in Paris Days 4 + 5
Posted on 26 January 2014
Friday and Saturday have now flown by without a blog post - oops - needless to say I have been flat out buying home-wares and furniture, and organising shipping for the beautiful things I've found. I have found the odd spot of soaking up Parisian hot spots and sights too!
Most fascinating was lunch at new Phillippe Stark restaurant Ma Cocotte - it was really a design inspiration. Truly beautiful.
So, at the table next to me was a very intriguing French speaking woman. She wore a blackoutfit, including a black panti-hose head cap. She had long purple lengths of hair, a metal mouth guard, black tattooed fingers and the most un-imaginable, amazing rings on every finger. She defied normal and oozed uber cool. I was told by my lunch date she is the wife and muse of notorious French fashion designer Rick Owens. I COULD NOT take my eyes off her. Her name is Michele Lamy. Here are some pics I found of her online (pictured with Rick in some shots).
And here she was at a table next to me at Ma Cocotte - sorry about the blurry picture but I was nervous trying not to make it too obvious!
You can always trust Paris to blow you away - in unexpected ways!
