We'll start today with a special Ladies and Parisian curation. The very good news is that you'll find all those beautiful books and products tonight at our Ladies Private Sale Party! Come and read with the French Attitude!
1- Culottées by Pénélope Bagieu (vol 1 & 2)
Margaret, a « scary» actress who specializes in roles for villains in Hollywood ; Agnodices, a gynecologist from Greek Antiquity who had to disguise herself as a man in order to practice ; Lozen, an Apache woman, warrior, and shaman ; Annette, an Australian mermaid who invented the women’s swimsuit…
Penelope Bagieu sketches out these fifteen portraits of women with great humor and finesse, portraying how they overcame the social pressures of their time to lead the lives of their choice.
2- Say bonjour to the lady by Pauline Levee and Florence Mars
Where French parents rely heavily on the word “No” and dictate what their children wear, American moms and dads talk everything out with their kids and let them choose their own clothes. French children are well-behaved and stylish; American children are self-confident and creative. Which approach is better? Both—and neither—proclaim authors Florence Mars and Pauline Lévêque, two Parisian moms raising children in New York. Beautifully and playfully illustrated by Lévêque, Say Bonjour to the Lady pokes fun at the extremes of both styles, making for an amusing look at parenting today
3- La Rêveuse – Totebags & notebooks
The La Reveuse notebooks and bags are created exclusively for Albertine. Elegant and literary, they have found incredible success since the opening of the bookshop.
4 - 180°C, the Hedonist Magazine
Entirely devoted to cooking and to those who love it, 180 ° C is a semi-annual independent magazine helmed by a team of enthusiasts who follows the seasons and the fine products they bring. Very beautiful pictures, exclusive content, and often funny texts that do not take themselves too seriously. A deguster sans moderation.
