One of the most exciting things I brought back from Paris is that edition of "La Mode", a fashion magazine that is exactly 110 years old, day for day. You know how much I love hats so when I saw that cover, I just couldn't resist. The magazine is just 8 pages and illustrates the latest trends but also provides a couple of patterns so women could sew their own pieces (we kind of dropped that section since. Now Zara sews for us). My favourite section is the last page ads; I was surprised to read that women had exactly the same concerns as today: diet, haircare, eternal youth... Funny how things don't change that much!
