Monique Péan’s Paris Diary-------
New York-based jewelry designer Monique Péan was selected as one of ten past CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists for round two of the Americans in Paris program. While in the City of Light, Pean shared a showroom space with the like of Albertus Swanepoel and Simon Spurr at Paris’ Galerie Joyce and made time to stop by a few of the week’s biggest parties, too. She shares some of her snaps and memories, below.
“With my boys, two of the most talented American designers in Paris—Simon Spurr and Prabal Gurung. Simon’s suits make almost any man look handsome and Prabal’s prints are stunning.”
“With Hannah Bronfman (in Monique Péan fine jewelry) at a lounge in Place Vendome.”
“At Alber’s ten-year anniversary party! Love Lanvin and the cake made of books!”
“Midnight in Paris with Mickey Boardman.”
“At Ikram’s biannual party in Paris. Ikram is a purveyor of jewels and was the first store to discover my fossilized creations. It’s amazing to see how many Fashion Funders she’s discovered!”
