Made in Paris
When abroad, nothing is more valuable than an insider’s guide to all the nooks and secret spots a city holds.
Stylist Pia Jane Bijkerk has divulged her little black book of secret addresses in her new collection Paris: Made by Hand.
Focusing on designers and shopkeepers who are all about handcrafted pieces, Bijkerk, who has styled for Vogue Entertaining & Travel, GQ, Real Simple and Marie Claire, lists 50 of her favourite shops and studios where you’ll rub elbows with local decorators and stylists looking for unique items. Each chapter is organized by neighbourhood and so you don’t spend all your time in a shopping frenzy there are plenty of cafes and lunch spots suggested along the way.
You’ll never bring home an Eiffel Tower keychain for your mom again.
