Paris Men’s Fashion Week Diary / C.O.Q. Hotel

Posted on January 26, 2016


Paris it’s always a good idea! I’ve just come back from a few days long trip to Paris for Men’s Fashion Week. I had the pleasure to stay in The COQ Hotel my favourite boutique hotel located very close to Jardin de Luxembourg and Saint Germain. I feel like it’s my home away from home. I’ve stayed there for the second time and enjoyed it even more than the last time. I love small boutique hotels because they’re cosy, very often run by its members, who take care of their guests with special attention and it feels like home. The lobby and the lounge in COQ hotel is arranged in a beautiful living room setting ( I wish I had such an amazing one in my London flat! ) with designer furniture and home accessories, from magazines to photography books. Plus a lot of plants and a glasstop roof which gives the whole area a winter garden look where you can enjoy your time with a glass of French wine and eventually play Scrabble or Monopoly, or more realistically work on your computer or iPhone.

You can see more photos from my trip on my Instagram. And if you’re planning to visit Paris soon, I can highly recommend a stay in COQ hotel.

Paris is always a good idea! Two weeks ago I had a pleasure to visit Paris to take part in the shooting of the new video commercial for the launch of the ultra lightweight suitcase by Samsonite. It was a great experiance to see the creative process of this kind of initiative and meet the amazing people from Samsonite. For the first time Samsonite used drones to enlight the weight of the suitcase. It was incredible to watch the suitcases fly over Paris, I have never experienced anything like it, it was even more like an artistic performance than a commercial. Check out the result HERE.


Orange is my new black

Last photos from my trip to Paris a few weeks ago. Ponte Alexander III Bridge is definitely one of the most beautiful places in Paris. What’s more and really strange, it was the first time I’ve taken pictures there . No idea how it could have happened! I was wearing an orange Acne Studios bomber jacket with a black mini skirt and a white camisole. I’m obsessed with everything orange right now, so you can expect a lot of orange here on my blog this season!

Coming back to my trip to Paris. I teamed up with Shoptrotter and created my ‘Shopping Route in Paris’, sharing my favourite boutiques in Paris. Starting from Barbara Bui in Le Marais, Isabel Marant, through Acne and Stella McCartney in Galerie de Valois ( what a breathtaking location! ) ending in my favourite department store Le Bon Marche. Of course I couldn’t forgot about boutiques in Place Vendome, like Chanel or Louis Vuitton. There is no doubt, Paris is on of the best shopping destinations in the world, but it’s good to have a good guide which helps you save a time and find exactly what you’re looking for. Shoptrotter is the best shopping app I’ve had a chance to use. You can find my lastest shopping route in Paris HERE and London route I shared last year HERE. I’d love to hear your opinion! x

Leopard biker jacket

I could never get enough of leopard print. Each season I wear a new piece with this print and find it absolutely timeless. We shot these pictures in Paris during the last day of my stay. Now I’m back in London, full of positive energy. Spring time is my favourite part of the year, especially here in Notting Hill where I live. I’m so looking forward to it.

Jardin des Tuileries

Posted on March 9, 2015

Some pictures we took in Jardin Des Tuleries yesterday. The weather in Paris is just unreal, feels like summer, not even spring. We are enjoying our time here more than ever. Also, I’ve just realised that Paris is such a small city, there is always walking distance from one place to another. Nothing makes me happier as stroling along River Seine with a view of Eifel Tower wearing my favourite dress and bare legs. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @alicezielasko ! x
