It’s funny, when you travel all the time, all you want to do is find places that feel like home. I love hotels, but it makes me so happy when I can live like a local, get groceries, and rent a house like I did in LA in January.

For my visit to Paris, it was a bit different. I was invited to stay at Marie-Sixtine, an apartment — or, as the Marie-Sixtine team likes to call it, “the littlest hotel in Paris”. Marie-Sixtine is a Parisian clothing brand that makes very soft, very cozy clothes, that are the perfect link between the inside and the outside. The apartment above the shop was available, and the team decided to decorate it, so the apartment is kind of an extension of the look and feel of the brand.

I’ve already told you about this when I visited the Armani world, I’m pretty passionate about these types of stories. For me, a brand has always been much more than just clothing — I’d love to see a Céline hotel one day, or a Loewe airline, or an Isabel Marant travel agency…as long as it’s done really, really well, of course. We’ve too many bad licensings around.

And really, the Marie-Sixtine apartment was thought out to perfection. First of all, it’s the ideal Parisian pied-a-terre, like a cozy cloud, not too big, not too small, and the decor is super inspiring and calming — I couldn’t believe my eyes when I set down my much too heavy baggage (both physical and psychological) and went over to sprawl out on the bed. I could have slept there non-stop for a week. Let’s just say it wasn’t easy to get to work…

Even so, I managed to invite a couple of my beloved friends, Laura and Lauren, to have breakfast with me. We ordered a sublime breakfast at Epicerie Generale and we caught up on each other’s lives for as long as possible. A little moment of paradise amid the craziness of fashion weeks…

I’ll let you enjoy the photos, and since it was DELICIOUS, I’ll be back soon with three of my favorite recipes from that breakfast. Kisses!
