So last night, I was invited to the opening of the new Lancel shop (blvd Waterloo in Brussels), and what a party! Surrounded by bags, including the new Brigitte Bardot bag which I was very keen to see for myself, fun and charming people, champagne and food, and the sound of Beatrice Ardisson "aux platines", I had an amazing evening and it was just the mini break I needed.

A huge thank you to Sophie Carré for the lovely invitation

The BB girls

The Brigitte Bardot Bag, just like BB it is feminim but still very playful. Any thoughts?I would go for the all black version personally or my other favourite is the premier flirt in red croco

One last kiss and one last glass of champagne and we will be off

and it ended with the Lancel goodie bag and ...
