Elie is the adorable jewelry and accessories designer for Alber Elbaz at Lanvin. Fiercely loyal, he went from YSL to Lanvin with Alber as a youngster 15 years ago, and has been with him ever since. In addition, he’s now designing his own high-end line of couture jewelry, which launched at Galerie Mitterrand last January.
La Boutique Des Saints-Pères
Located down the street from Karl Lagerfeld’s studio in the Seventh Arrondissement, theirs is the chicest flower shop I have ever seen.
Forget Manolo and Louboutin, these are my new favorite shoes! Divine, modern, and sexy. Russo was at YSL for years and then became creative director at Sergio Rossi. He recently went out on his own and has a shop on Rue de Valois. The boutique is a teeny, tiny jewel box, like the inside of a shoe box.
