One of our favorite people ever, Maria Luisa's Robin Schulié marches on through resort 2012 buying appointments at Paris showrooms—today he makes the rounds in the Triangle d'Or, a.k.a. all the big Avenue Montaigne-caliber brands, complete with traditional catering. First stop? Nina Ricci, where there's table service. Ooh la la.
"Table service at Nina Ricci is efficient!" Schulié writes.
"More non-stop mignardises at Nina Ricci," Schulié writes, "almost as sweet and sugary as the collection itself!"
We quit coffee years ago, but this makes us crave a cup.
"Parisien at Nina Ricci with café and delicious croissant," says Schulié.
