A Recap: Paris Buying Trip

April 01 2016



Each buying trip to Paris is filled with memorable highlights and I am lucky enough to be able to go a couple of times a year. Growing up the Jeffers had a longstanding tradition of calling favorite trip moments out. At the end of a family trip my father would always ask, “What were your top 5 highlights?” We would feverishly compare amongst ourselves, reminiscing on the events we experienced and the things we saw, the favorite meal, the favorite site….our favorite personal interaction with someone we met along the way.




Food Highlight
In Paris I rent an apartment through Airbnb in the Marais, near which is a small local restaurant called Pramil that I have gone to a few times. It never disappoints. It’s within walking distance from the apartment, reasonably priced and the food is top notch. I joined a few friends who were ready and willing to share a selection of small bites, (my kind of people.) I ordered a cauliflower “cake” with tamarind sauce to start and a sautéed scallop dish with eggplant and pasta for my main. One friend enjoyed a warm pumpkin soup with a scoop foie de gras ice cream.






Retail Highlight
The day we arrived I was suffering from jet lag, so I traipsed over to Le Bon Marche and got a chance to see the Iris Apfel installation. Though a minimalist at heart I am big fan of Iris and all she represents. I love a woman who adheres to only her own rules as long as it suits her. Like Iris I believe we should dress only to please ourselves and as a way to enhance our sense of strength and character.





Creative Highlight
The next day I had a photoshoot with blogger Elle Fure as well as her hubby and photographer John Nugent in the Left Bank. I have truly missed these guys ever since they moved from NY to Oslo 8 months ago. We made a plan to meet in Paris and do a mini shoot with just a few pieces. Needless to say we had a ball and got some amazing shots.Elle has a way of putting together the coolest pattern combinations (much like Iris – and I envy that.) Afterward we had an amazing lunch at Ralphs.







New Designer Discoveries
I happened upon a brand new bag collection while I was seeing Le Yucca shoes in a small showroom. It’s an Italian bag line called Vittorio d’Ottavio. With incredible shapes, very clean and architectural with a selection of tactile, soft, and lightweight leathers.








Look for this line to land at Roztayger in July/August.
