Buyer’s Diary SS15 Part II : Paris

October 21, 2014

Blog   Buyer's Diary  

A few highlights from our most recent trip to Paris. Hope you enjoy!

We stayed at the most charming apartment in the 9th arrondisement, the neighborhood which is becoming my new favorite! If you’re ever traveling to Paris I highly recommend this apartment – contact the shop for details!



This was Candace’s first buying trip! It was exciting to watch her experience everything and for me to vicariously see things through fresh eyes. I always love traveling for Coup but it is easy to get used to certain aspects of the job – so watching Candace’s experience brought a lot of the initial excitement back!

Here is Candace at the Dion Lee showroom – a very exciting new addition to Coup coming from Australia!


The two of us at the Etienne Deroeux launch at Tom Greyhound in Paris


A beautiful piece from the Etienne FW14 collection  at Tom Greyhound. . .

And our after-work-relax routine . . . everyday!


A blurry but important photo. How good is an Uber car complete with photo booth? 5 stars!  . . . the simple things


First order of business was a visit to The Each X Other showroom. Below are the highlights: one of my favorite dresses of the season, my favorite showroom dog, and the most amazing suede jacket! A good start to the trip . . .



Visiting the talented Etienne Dereoux is always a highlight . . . Can’t wait to have his collection in the shop come spring! 

His Parties are fun too . . . loved L’Isolé in Pigalle! A cool little bar with karoake in the back room . . . yes I sang. Candace has the video proof which will not be included in the Buyer’s Diary.



Beautiful Avelon show at the Dutch Ambassador’s house. Avelon’s FW collection is in store now! You can check it out here > 


A visit with Yara Flinn of Nomia NYC in Paris! Nomia FW is in store and online. Shop it here >



Stopping by the WOMAN show and finding a few gems there . . .

Here is a small portion of the series Candace is working on entitled “Anna on Her Phone” . . . and there are many more (not shown). Hey! Someone has to navigate! . . .

And that’s a wrap for SS15! Now we can focus on the present – fall and winter – in store now!
