We’re always on the lookout for cool brands and fresh designers around the world. Along the way we’ve picked up the awesome Moscow Sock Club from Russia and stunning sapphire rings from jewelry designer Vrajlals in India.
But our travels wouldn’t have been complete without a stop off in Paris to track down the latest trends from one of the biggest accessories markets in the world.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of inspirational sellers we found at the Premiere Classe trade show…

Paula Such is a Spanish artist who transforms her delicate and unique watercolour paintings into luxury silk scarves. Each scarf is made from 100% Italian Twill silk and produced in the Lake Como area of Italy. The scarves are inspired by ‘moments that enrich life’ and come packaged in a traditional painter’s chest, which is handmade in Spain. This fusion of Spanish design and Italian craftsmanship have been featured in the likes of Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and Glamour Magazine.
Xr are an NYC brand that combines luxury and sustainability to create timeless feminine jewelry. Designed and made in the US by Xavier Ricolfi, the brand uses abstract structural designs and explores a mix of contrasts and transitions between shapes. From the delicate Serpent Cuff, to the versatile Transition Ring, their collection is all about understated glamour: perfect for everyday wear.
Rosie Kent is an independent jewellery designer from London, and has previously worked for top labels including Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, ASOS. Her style is bold, dramatic and elegant, paying close attention to detail in each beautifully crafted, handmade item. Our favourite from the collection is her gorgeous Gold Plated Wing Ring, which, due to its open design will fit on any finger!
We met Sandrine, the designer and creator behind Dal Zotto bags. As a keen scooter rider who loves to zip through the streets of Paris on her Vespa, she always faced the problem, once you arrive at your destination, what to do with your helmet?
Sandrine came up with the unique idea to create her own collection of bags in which you can easily store your helmet, and look super stylish too! Each item in the collection is functional and practical, with a touch of chic Parisian style.
Despite being new to video, Sandrine was a real natural, and we hope to see more videos of her on the vespa soon!
