Whilst wandering around the Marais on a sunny afternoon in Paris I visited Martin Grant in his studio. It was the most Parisian place of work, complementing his perfectly tailored, chic silhouettes and sculptured pieces.

Martin on the move: Melbourne born but Paris based (for over 20 years) we chatted about his recent appointment of being chosen to redesign the uniforms for Qantas and one of his fav restaurants, Ferdi, in Paris where he frequents with the ultimate style icon, Lee Radziwill. Très cool!
I would never say no to a party, particularly one hosted by Longines at the Chateau de Chantilly in France! Their gala dinner set in the main hall amongst the likes of Raphaels (& the rest of the duke’s massive art collection) was of course an opportunity to dress to the nines in Gucci and practise my French (thankyou iTranslate).

(Thank you Prue for an unforgettable evening).
The grounds of the Chateau (built circa 1528) inspired Marie Antoinette’s Hameau de la reine in the Gardens of Versailles. Lucky for the gala attendees the Prince Henri d’Orleans (duc d’Aumale) put the Chateau & his art collection in his will so it would become a museum (& place to party).
My new Burberry coat was the opening look on the runway Feb 20th for AW12 Prorsum Collection and normally you would have to wait to get it instore at Burberry late July but voilà you can buy it online right now, like right now! SMR gives you click-to-buy.

I’m trotting out the door and excited beyond belief to be heading to Chantilly (France) for the Prix de Diane Longines horse race!
