The Diamond as Big as the Paris Ritz
Nancy Mitford’s character Walter in her 1931 novel Highland Fling affirms, “Paris to me means the Ritz.” Colette refers to “The dim continual hubbub of the fully awakened Rue de Rivoli” in Cherié, her novel of 11 years earlier. She adds, “But the weather over Paris was fine.” Strolling down Rue de Rivoli, The Boulevard of All Our Dreams, we are so doing Christian Dior at Galignani.

You may recognise the photo of the building with the guard outside… it is of course Pavillon Ledoyen with the three Michelin star Alleno restaurant! LVB X
So evident the vast contribution Haussmann makes to current day Paris. I believe he is responsible for about 60 per cent of the buildings of the city.
It’s great staying in a Haussmann townhouse and seeing his work all around.
Simply stylish !
