Prix de Diane 2007 & FSH Summer Windows

  1. After a little juggling in the old agenda some friends and I managed to make it to the Prix de Diane. After all, who can turn down an invitation from Hermes to be part of something so utterly splendid? The people I was with all agreed that there was so much beauty to take in that any photographic attempts at capturing the day would ultimately be mediocre. They're right, of course. But I took some snaps for you all anyway. Enjoy!

    The entrance to Le Village Hermes was through a handful of brightly colored tents like this one.

    ... these led to more tents filled with gorgeous Indian spices, fruit, traditional clothing, antiques, crafts and other 'petits bibelots' - a mini souk for the well-heeled to wander around in before the main attraction
