The Maks & Blaze Trend team visited Paris for the Premiere Classe Trend Fare in March, as well as Paris Fashion Week.

Premiere Classe was held at the Jardin des Tuileries, in the heart of Paris. This 4-day Trend Fare serves as a top-end showcase for jewellery & accessory designers from all over the world. With 400 exhibitors and over 17000 visitors at the Trend Fare, we were overwhelmed and inspired, not only by the jewellery & accessories on display, but by the people & fashion as well.

Some of our favourite trends from the Fare include:

  • The fine metal & pearl earrings & bracelets from E.M.

  • The raw natural effect necklaces from Noritamy

  • The futuristic sporty Perspex necklaces & headwear from House of Flora 

  • The Gothic rope necklaces from Chaca

  • The medieval-inspired leatherwork handbags & body harnesses from Una Burke

  • The distressed metallic leather bags from Campomaggi

  • The spliced architectural print bags from Mury


When we weren’t at the Trend Fare, or shopping up a storm in Paris, we were eagerly photographing street style and the who’s who of the Fashion Industry at Runway shows. We spotted Olivia Palermo bustling through the crowds at the Elie Saab Runway show, as well as fashion bloggers: Man Repeller, The Haute Pursuit, Mary Leest, Hofit Golan, Sophie Hermann, Kate Zhang & Amanda Shadforth.

Fashion varied from casual sporty, to chic & glam Parisian style, with accessories ranging from miniature quirky handbags, bold necklaces, statement sunnies, to sporty sneakers. Various looks popped with colour, plush furs & mismatched patterns.

A trip to Paris would not be complete without feasting on some of the local delicacies. We enjoyed croissants, macaroons from Laduree, hot chocolate from Angelina’s, the most divine caramel & banana crepes, and of course we had to try French onion soup and frogs legs – which did taste just like chicken!

One of the best views was waking up every morning to the sight of the Eiffel Tower, which was less than 1km away from our hotel. We also had the great privilege of seeing the Arc de Triomphe, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sacre Coeur, the Moulin Rouge and the Louvre. 

Overall, Paris was everything and more than what we could have ever expected… when can we go back?!
