Belgium designer Celine d’Aoust creates the most charming pieces of jewelry: subtil and colourful, very feminine and delicate, like a very private talisman. Céline d’Aoust has inherited her passion  for stones and their value form her mother. After training as a fashion designer, she then decided to turn to gemstones and jewels design. All the gemstones (precious or semi-precious) are directly and carefully chosen in Jaipur, India and assembled in her Brussels studio.

Ek Thongprasert makes some of the most beautiful pieces of statement necklaces out there ( but also earrings, bracelets…). Born in Thailand the duo formed by jewelry designer Noon Passama S and fashion designer EK Thongrasert is based in Antwerp ( one of my favorite city and an endless source of creative talents) and graduated from the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts.

Wearable works of art, made of an intricate construction of shapes, colours and materials, Ek Thongprasert’s unique and precious creations are mostly made of silicon and aim the aesthet, the art-lover, the fashion conscious, the collector…No wonder A-list bloggers such as Mira Duma are huge fans.

 Not married yet but I wouldn’t mind getting married in one of Rime Arodaky’s gorgeous dresses!

Based in Paris, Rime Arodaky is a graduate from the Chambre Nationale de la Haute Couture Parisienne and earned her fashion pedigree working with names such as Sonia Rykiel and Dice Hayek…

After launching a blog in 2010 she decided to move forward and in 2013 started her namesake brand.  The result is fresh, modern, rock yet romantic, all made in France from the finest fabrics. Rime’s brides dresses are all about subtil details and fluidity…  

Who wants to marry in a cheesy frilly bustier wedding gown anyway?

I have been a huge fan of Molton Brown for 10 years or so but unfortunately the upmarket cosmetics brand is no longer to be found on french ground…I guess I’ll just to wait until my next London trip to splurge on pampering toiletries! In the meantime, my comfort gift will be one of their fantastically chic travel kits: the beauty perfect travel size essentials such as 50 ml body lotion and body wash, shampoo and conditionners….
