Misia’s Parisian Hotspots
I think Paris is one of the sexiest cities in the world. It just buzzes with love, fashion and history! My muse for my latest Couture Collection, wealthy socialite Misia Sert, was once called the Queen of Paris. I recommend you visit these 3 places during your next stay in Paris and experience the magic of ‘Misia’s Paris’ for yourself.
1. Café de Flore- HQ of cool
This café, on Boulevard Saint-Germain (172), was THE hotspot of the Roaring Twenties, or ‘Années Folles’ as the French called them. Its classic Art Deco interior never changed, and it’s easy to imagine Misia sitting here, surrounded by drooling admirers. It’s still a popular hang-out for the hip and famous, so wear a snazzy LBD and keep your eyes peeled!
Tip: If you want to look like a regular sit inside, preferably at the back. Mandatory accessory: a good book.
2. Chanel Boutique- Coco’s Cocoon
Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel always said that fashion wasn’t something ‘that exists in dresses only.’ According to Misia Sert’s BFF (LINK), fashion is everywhere; in the sky and in the street. Well, visit Rue Cambon 21, Chanel’s original boutique and apartment and BREATHE fashion! Make sure you check out the faceted mirrored spiral staircase that made it possible for Chanel to stand in one spot and see what was happening on every floor.
Tip: On a tight budget? Even small purchases -perfume or make up- will be wrapped and put in a gorgeous white Chanel bag.
3. Museé d’Orsay- Impressionist Superstars
During Misia’s lifetime, this was a busy railway station. How amazed would she be to find it it is now one of the world’s most famous and stunning art galleries! Get up close and personal with incredible works by artists like Monet, Degas, Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec. Wouldn’t Misia would get a kick out of the fact that these impressionist superstars were once her poor protégés?
Tip: Order your tickets beforehand online and skip the lines. Also: the roof has the most breathtaking view of the City of Love.
We simply adore the city of love and to get you in the mood for an upcoming Parisian adventure we recommend the cheeky Misia Loves Coco set.
Coming home for xmas
Confession: I am a total Xmas fanatic. I LIVE for the holiday season. While my usual taste can best be described as austere and intellectual, come Christmas, I’m into kitsch. Big time. Bring on the glitter, the glühwein and the sentimental songs!
Real life Cluedo with a sexy twist
Forget about stressful family gatherings and long, boring dinners; let me show you how to survive the (Christmas-) holidays in sexy style!
Embrace your dark side – get inspired for Halloween
Imagine if there were a night where it would be socially acceptable to indulge your deepest darkest dreams. An annual opportunity for women to dress like their sexual fantasies – be it a blood-thirsty vampire or a flirtatious nun – without getting ‘slut shamed’. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well there is a night just like that, and it happens to be one of my favorite moments of the year: Halloween.
