The Left Bank




Strolling the Left Bank on a sunny afternoon I came across two things I would like to share with you. This area of Paris has an abundance of interesting book shops. Each one seems to have its own personality based on its owner. In the heart of the Carre Rive Gauche antique district, I visited 7L, Karl Lagerfeld’s book shop. Here you will find a well edited selection of inspirational books on art, architecture, photography and fashion. It includes books that Lagerfeld’s has published himself.


Interestingly, the Left Bank’s fascination with books has found its way into the Sonia Rykiel Boutique in Saint-Germain. The shop has floor to ceiling bookshelves filled with books. An unusual display for a clothing boutique! The new Spring collection is sparingly integrated within the books.┬áThis Spring collection at Sonia Rykiel is the first collection created by┬áJulie de Librain (previously at Louis Vuitton with Marc Jacobs) as the new artistic director. It is sophisticated yet fun, with 70 inspired fringed knits, denim overalls and jumpsuits for evening. She has updated the spirit of Sonia Rykiel perfectly!











The shop window also features a life size, single cut video of models wearing the Spring SR collection reading books at a cafe. Here is Robert enjoying some fun with the girls.




Au Revoir for now!
