new collection

We are in the midst of preparing for the Paris show, and at the moment the new products come in from the various production places.
This is always very fulfilling since I work for months designing  and than  all the effort and work comes together.
Here are some of the new things .
I designed some scarves because I have a weakness for the prints that were also used on the silkpillows.
well enjoy........

Chateau de Menton, Haute Savoy, France

When I visited this fascinating 12th. century castle in its beautiful surroundings, I was surprised to find this insipring library with thousands of books all around, binded in leather and gold. The heritage of the family de Menton over the past eight centuries.

The view over the valley with the small village of Menton 
looks like a 16 century painting
