    Back at work now and feeling pretty satisfied with my trip to Paris. I saw some really exciting new things both from my current collections and a brand new collection that is scheduled for delivery in January. Don’t want to say too much just yet but it is hand made in Germany, really fun colours and styles and at the less expensive end of the spectrum. More on that closer to the delivery date.

    The show itself was full of amazing sights but a few things made it a more difficult show. The location has moved from reasonably central Paris to way out by Charles de Gaulle Airport and unfortunately the closing time was much earlier each evening this year. With that, throw in a transport strike on the Thursday and engineering works on the line to the show on the Saturday and it made it pretty difficult to fit everything in. There was so much more I wanted to see but I guess it will have to wait till the Munich trade show in January. I’ll update you on what to expect over the next few weeks.

    Needless to say, Le Relais de L’Entrecote did not fail to deliver. Great food, passable wine and prompt service. Till next year…
