Les p'tites fleurs de Paris

There is it! My new summer collection 2011. It's called "Les p'tites fleurs de Paris". I really got inspired by Paris and the 50's for this one. All the material also comes from Paris. I had so much fun. I wanted something fresh, colourfull and light. I hope you like it.

Visit in Montecristi

Last month I visited Ecuador, the country that makes the so called Sombreros de paja toquilla, better knowned as "Panama Hats". I had the pleasure to go to Montecristi, where the famous montecristi hat comes from. I bought a hat for my father and had the pleasure to see the lady work in her workshop.

Every morning before dawn her and her family get together and start weaving until the heat is to much and the fingers start sweating.

This hat will be a "montecristi fino".  She takes one month to weave a hat like this one. Respect.

There is not much choice in her store section. But it takes so much time for her to make one!

 Mine! This one takes (only!) 3 days to make.

mon bibi at Schloss Bückeburg

From 23rd until 26th of June mon bibi will be in Bückeburg where a wonderful "Landpartie" ("partie de campagne" as we say in French and I could only find the word "outing" in English) with the theme "Rock n' Roll & Petticoat". The Bückeburg Castle is a wonderful location. The is a "Landpartie" twice a year, the other one beeing around Christmas.

See you there!
