Destination Paris is everyone’s dream and PARIS Unlimited holds the keys to enriching, unique discovery programs of a city which is both eternal and changing.
PARIS, PLACE VENDÔME
Here is a dream package for a unique day where you will be taken into the privacy of wonderful houses. The program is composed of three visits, each approximately one hour, to the finest jewelers, fashion and accessory houses around Place Vendôme. You will invited behind the doors and discover the time honored traditions in savoir-faire and the unparalleled creativity of the Maisons who represent the excellence of European art of living.
A DAY IN & AROUND THE PALAIS ROYAL
A favourite place of Marie-France, the Palais Royal with its elegant arcades and its tranquil gardens possesses an atmosphere within itself. She has created an itinerary, which illustrates the essence of the French woman’s touch, with stops at boutiques which will be ours while we are there. Our scheduled visits will include a glove maker, a jeweller, a perfume designer and end with a whimsical show presented by fan maker.
L'EXCEPTIONNEL DE CHRISTIAN DIOR
Take an excursion by helicopter to Christian Dior’s Museum in Granville, Normandy, housed in the former Villa « Les Rhumbs » still reminiscent of the Belle Epoque where the couturier grew up with his family. You will have an exclusive and intimate journey accompanied by Marie-France Pochna, Christian Dior's biographer, into what formed his early inspirations and understand the profound imprint “Granville” left on his passion for nature. You will discover the ravishing villa looking out on the sea and the flower garden he planted with his adoring mother.
PARIS Unlimited features a 3 day program catering mainly to women fascinated by the aura surrounding the timeless French flair. Enjoy an insider access to couture boutiques, accessory fashion shops and jewelers, each one providing guidance for understanding and choosing a special item if you are interested. We shall pursue our tour to the manufacturing suburb of Pantin, where famous luxury brands have set up their ateliers. To climax this Paris extravaganza, we have organized a “by invitation only” moment in Versailles for a glimpse into Queen Marie-Antoinette’s intimate world with access to her private apartments.
INDIAN TALE ON THE LEFT BANK
A unique rendez vous at the jewel designer, Marie-Hélène de Taillac, who will invite you for tea in her pristine store designed by Tom Dixon. Marie-Hélène’s passion for colours combined with her fascination with authentic jewels led her to travel to India. It was then she found what she’d been looking for: exceptional gems and the finest artisans who still work according to traditional methods dating back to the maharajahs. Her endearing story with India continues, and no doubt you will fall under the magic attraction of her stones.
