Guest Post: A French Flavor by Sarah at Haute Design



"Paris is always a good idea" Sabrina
While the lovely Helena is on her way to Paris, I am honored to be filling in, and sharing one of the most beautiful shops in Paris: Dior. Famously encompassed in a façade of dove grey and white, Dior is one of thedestinations for the fashionable and stylish woman while in Paris. A chic and contemporary large boutique of 1,200 square metres, with unique sectioned areas, brimming with beautiful pieces to see, touch and want. And who would not? John Galliano's Fall/Winter collection is terribly elegant and beautifully appointed.

Designed by the clever Peter Marino, Dior is a dream destination while in Paris... can you imagine how beautiful and exciting it must have been back in the 1940's, when Dior first officially opened its doors?
