I love magazines. For as long as I can remember, they’ve always been a huge source of inspiration for me. As a teenager, long before Pinterest existed, I would devour interior design magazines and quarterly artsy papers. I still do. I wanted to tell you about the great reads we’ve discovered in a new column. I’m calling it What I Read Today.
We all have a go-to pair of shades, that we dust off and take out every time the sun is out. In general, it’s a more classic pair, discreet and easy to wear. And then, most of us also have some more edgy sunglasses, stylish and original. For me, these days, it’s this pair of rather innovative Time for Wood sunglasses.
Phew. What a week. As you might have noticed, we didn’t post anything on the blog since last week’s selection and also weren’t very active on social media (@leclubdesdouze) over the weekend. Shame on us. Friends from New York were in town by way of Shanghai and we had to hang out and hear about their adventures. Also, I was tired. So there. But we’re back with a feature on awesome watch brand Breda.
As you can imagine, I always love hearing about new French brands. Even more so when I have had a chance to work with the founder. Today, I’m telling you about Toka Toka, launched by Vincent Tokatlian, one of the editors of French lifestyle blog La Superette. Read on if you’re into Made in France, cool shirts and camouflage!
As you might have seen on Instagram (@leclubdesdouze), I was in Greece last week. It had been a bit over 4 years that I hadn’t visited my family and it was time. It’s a short flight to Thessaloniki in Makedonia and I’ve done it dozens of times, but man, I hate flying… I still wanted to somehow enjoy the experience and so I asked my friend Adrien, the music guy, to put together for me the best songs for take off. And the timing is actually perfect since he just launched an awesome app called The Best Song.
