I am in love with the Jardin of the Palais Royal. Surrounded by famous tourist destinations this lovely garden is flanked by unique stores, cafes and restaurants and is a most for any visit to Paris. It is just relaxing to stroll the garden, have a cafe and do some window shopping or serious retail therapy. For me it is the essence of Paris as it retains its unique charm.

In the shopping arcade you will find Corto Moltedo. His bags are different, colorful and quirky. His “Susan” clutches come in all treatments, colors and textures. I love the design of the store and the display of the bags. The new “straw” bag is hip and chic. Corto is a very warm and genuine person and in his bags the quality and his taste resonate.
