It was another bank holiday, the joy of May when strangely there are two!
Summer Fridays have kicked in at work so I was off to France for a Friday to Tuesday morning, hurrah! First stop after lunch was a trip to Grasse to look (strategically) for a couple of summer dresses from Fragonard. As I’ve previously mentioned, going to Fragonard is a truly sensory experience. The scent of beautiful perfumes clings to packaging I only wish I had designed. Add delicate thin cool cotton and original patterns and it’s the perfect recipe for summer.
I did manage to buy a couple of dresses, perfect for weekends in the South of France and never to be worn in London! It’s a very different style but thin, translucent cotton is essential to summer survival so that was a necessary journey. And that was a good start to the weekend!
