Pachute carries jewelry and women collections as well, like Ivan Grundahl, Pas de Calais and 120% Lino. Before opening Pachute Sharone was a sale representative for different clothing and accessory lines. Pachute in Hebrew means “simple”, which captures the philosophy of the store. Sharone is very sensitive to texture, the way the clothing feel and she only chooses styles with soft high quality fabrics for both women and kids. This has always been a very essential while looking for clothes for herself and especially for her young kids, she wanted them wrapped only in soft, natural fabrics. She loves the energy of a store created by both moms and kids, the kids make it fun, less serious, more real…

“What do boys like about Mimi Lou? Boys love to play with our stickers… like with our ‘A L’Aventure’ removable wall boarder for example, boys can imagine themselves pirates and put money in the treasure box, hang a batman in one corner of the room. The possibilities are endless! - What do girls like about Mimi Lou? The neon pink stars… what is better that pink when you are a girl? They also love to chose and help their mum put their décor in their room, fun time together!”
The world map is brilliant and beautiful. I is made to play with and offer a multitude of possibilities to create different stories and learn at the same time. It comes with more than 50 dots with the names of capital cities, flags, animals, symbols. Children will learn the different capital cities in the world and place them on the map, they will have fun putting the Eiffel tower in Paris, the pyramid in Egypt and so on..

“In the series “Existing in Costume”, Chan-Hyo Bae has chosen the iconography of queenliness to express his feelings as an Asian immigrant. He dresses in period costumes and photographs himself as unidentified members of English aristocracy from the 13th to 19th centuries (all the works are untitled). His self-portraits mimic women monarchs only and are an examination of gender, power, race, and class.Read more

I am getting ready for another visit at Paris Photo in November. An annual rendez-vous that I wouldn’t miss at any cost. This made me remember one of the artists I liked very much last year, and that I totally forgot to mention on Pirouette. Never too late.
