Yesterday before starting the first buying meetings during Paris Fashion Week, Ms. Olsen our Category Manager for Lingerie, Bags and Acc.and I drop by what most be one of the worlds best curated deparment stores Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche to do some store checking – Their lingerie department is small but very well selected and a good place to find out what is going on in the area.

We also had to see the La Grande Epicerie one of the best places in Paris to do your grocery shopping more then 3000 m2 with around 30.000 different products. They had open up the middle of the store and put in a new escalator bringing you either down to the Wine Cellar.

Or up to the fantastic new lunch restaurant and tea salon La Table, where you now sit under the sky the whole year.
