My obsession with Paris is no secret. If I could move there tomorrow, I would. While I always believe that you attract what you absolutely love, I did not realise this philosophy would extend to my Ross and Brown sunglasses. First, you need to read this…
Inspired by the “wind of change” of the Post-Liberation, when Paris was the european capital of the “exciting era”, a city packed with all the arts. Think about the Rive Gauche and its intellectual “café society”, when Café de Flore in Saint-Germain-des-Près was the haunt of the post-war bohemians such as existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, novelist Boris Vian or singer Juliette Gréco. Think about haute couture and some of the houses that are today one-word icons: Dior, Balenciaga and Givenchy. Think about Audrey Hepburn, starring in 9 movies in Paris, or the legendary dresses designed for her by Givenchy in the ’50s and you will agree on her most famous quote: “Paris is always a good idea !”
It’s the inspiration behind my pair’s design; a story I was not aware of until last week when I researched this post. See! they found me, not me them.
Okay, now that my mind has calmed down after being thoroughly blown, and since the weather has gone pear in Cape Town, I think it’s time to plan a trip abroad. When you do, hop over to Langaro Lifestyle Centre in Camps Bay for your perfect pair.
Ross & Brown is an Italian eyewear brand established in 2013. Handmade to perfection, they’re lightweight, trendy and affordable (only R1750); ticking all the travel boxes to perfection.
If you can’t find what you love, choose from the extensive catalogue and Langaro will place an order. Mine delivery took about five days which wasn’t bad at all.
See you in Saint-Germain, jetsetters. Paris is always a good idea.
love & light
PS: What do think about my bravest shoot to date? These where shot in late afternoon light (the harshest and worst time by photographic standards) and have not been retouched. All thanks to my stylist – and now photographer – Duncan Pape at Langaro. Love him.
