Christian Dior Exhibition "A sight for sore eyes"My trip to Paris last autumn was just marvellous, absolutely enchanting. Lovely weather, we had suddenly summer in the middle of the autumn...All on my own, no obligations, so probably the most precious thing you can have: time, plenty of free time to roam the streets of Paris and enjoy as much art exhibitions, concert and films. I also enjoyed the company of my friends, whom I miss insanely when back in Bangkok.I wasn't going to miss the Christian Dior exhibition for anything at the "Musée des arts Décoratifs". It's the retrospective of 70 years of Dior.An extremely extensive exhibition, I have never seen so many dresses in my life at the same time, fascinating! Each piece as an art piece of design and craft.This exhibition will take you through 70 years of dedication to the dress and to the woman. With Christian Dior as the founding father leading you to Yves Saint Laurent, who modernised the style and therefore also the woman. To many years later with John Galliano taking the work of creation to an absolute new and spectacular level, never been seen before!
A wonderful day by the Ocean, I had the great opportunity to be invited to visit Khomapastr textile factory in Hua Hin. Invited by the managing director Asaya Kongsiri, who is the granddaughter of the founder and who I first met through my friend Julie, who collaborates with the brand.
Chef Gaggan Anand started his restaurant in Bangkok back in 2010 and since then he has been very successful. Winning several awards here in Asia, but not yet a Michelin... but they only arrived in Thailand this year so we will see what the experts will say...If my information is correct the guide arrives in both English and Thai at the end of this year.You arrive in a little white wooden house in this small alley off the Lang Suan Road. Lisa and I got a table in a room upstairs, quiet and quaint???? They presented the menu in the form of an emoji for every dish you were to taste, no names! Then the sommelier arrived to propose the wine. There we were sipping our first wine with the two first dishes coming in, when I say dishes it's more a bite. Throughout the whole dinner there wasn't any cutlery needed apart from two dishes out of 25.
