If you are in Provence, and drive southwest you will pass through the Carcassone and arrive in Spain. There, just over the border from France in the small town of Girona you will find this very chic atelier and gallery. Palau de Casavells sent me their opening notice, and I immediately fell for their beautifully austere space, with its spare antiques and fresh modern art collection.
one of the artists featured at Palau de Casavalls:
Bernat Daviu Quera
love the vintage finds: long bench, the Gustavian clock, and
this sassy little chair at Palau de Casavells
chic outdoor designed by Palau de Casavells
opened in March 2010, Palau de Casavells is housed
in a 19th C. building, but their aesthetic is
firmly rooted in the 21st C.
artist: Ramon Enrich
artist: Mirco Marchelli
And if you do drive south into Spain to see this stunning atelier, would you wear something oh so chic from Lilith? For women who love to be different, who love to be comfortable and wear beautiful clothes...and are not slaves to fashion...the French designer's "collection d'ete" is inspired by the jazz era in the 20's, a la Josephine Baker. I love these images of a breezy vacation somewhere in the south of France that Lilith is showing on their website.
Lilith collaborated with Camper to
design these delightful shoes!
this image strongly evokes the long, lazy days of
a summer in the South of France

And if you do get to drive south into Spain, that means you probably flew into Nice or Marseilles? I haven't read this yet, but am captivated by the sheer escapism it promises...a delicious tale of getting over a broken heart in Provence. Looks like a bit of fun fluff for a long flight, non?
thanks for visiting! ... Kit
