Abood Abroad

The super stylish Loren Abood, owner of chic Elizabeth Bay store bloodorange, gives us a picture tour of her recent buying trip to the European shows. A journal of inspirations from her day-to-day life.

Love my new (Prada) green banana’s!

Wake up light…in Paris I stay at a gorgeously friendly little boutique hotel.

Frequent naughtiness at Laduree.

The Lanvin windows are always so clever but I’ve never seen them so cheeky.

Regimented tree tops in the Tuileries.

Buying trip life lines…my Air & a pastry or two or three etc.

A special visit to Alaia’s showroom with architectural & furniture details by Marc Newson. Julian Schnabel portraits of Alaia & Stephanie Seymour.

Cliched but couldn’t care less…sunset in the Tuileries is breathtaking.
