Comment avoir la classe ?

How to be classy yet comfortable and casual ?? It is all in the accessories !

Clients kept asking me where I got my shirt, scarf , earrings …so I decided to carry what I love in the shop . San Diego is not Paris or New York ; we are way more lay back here … I like to be casual and need to be comfortable at work but I won’t sacrifice style  ! As Mother’s Day is fast approaching , here are a few ideas in case you thought Maison en Provence was just a Home and Garden Boutique !

Beautiful light weight cotton voile shirt with puffy sleeves , lace detail …wear it belted or not on those warm summer days !

This is the best cross body bag I ever got . Made in Tuscany out of washable paper , it is weightless , practical , spacious and yes classy ! You can be a tourist and not look like one on your next summer trip …These bags get softer and wear like a good pair of jeans as you use it . Come in 3 shapes and 8 colors that will go with everything in your wardrobe ! And if you dare ….wear it around the waste to belt a shirt or dress because YES the fanny pack is making a come back !

We also received a new shipment of clutches from Japan . I selected some lighter color Obis for the season . These will be perfect for summer parties, weddings…or just for a ladies night out to dress up a white pair of jeans or linen pants !

Our best selling line of scarves also came in from France this week …Inouii unique designs and quality are outstanding . Each season bring a whole new load of bold prints that will look as beautiful as a scarf , wrap , sarong or throw . (Light weight super soft cotton , cotton/linen blend , cotton/silk )

Lots of jewelry came in as well ….the best is always from my friend Lisiane , a French local like me who design beautiful feminine dainty necklaces and earrings .

La Saint Valentin

Yes it is the hottest trend right now ….and we, the French invented it ! 2018 will be the year of the Beret and the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day !

Summer bags

Its been 5 years since we could find and import these all time best sellers …We found some baskets , but nothing as perfect : Hand woven in classic or fun colors for the summer , with leather corners and handles. They all come with a lining that closes and in 3 sizes : purse, everyday tote or week end/beach basket .

Grand Prix de la Creation

 

Tzuri Gueta is a designer and textile engineer who has been based in Paris since 1996.
By combining silicone with openwork textile materials, Gueta invented a technique of blowing silicone into lace. The technique was patented in 2005. The countless facets of this combination of materials afforded him an unexpected field for exploration that began with textile design and led him to jewelry, design objects and art.
His first collaboration with an Haute Couture house was with Thierry Mugler and also lately with the Chanel fashion house . He was awarded by the City of Paris ” Grand Prix de la Création “.

Now we are very proud to bring his creations to you here in San Diego !
