When in Paris
Cobbled streets, velvety smooth accents, quaint cafes, flakey croissants and effortlessly chic locals spotted around every twist and turn – this could only be describing one city.
Allure South Sea Pearls travelled to Paris with Perth-based creative Deborah Thomas for a collaboration, documented in a collection of stunning images captured during her sojourn.
Staying in Le Marais – a vibrant district of Paris renowned for its arts, culture, rich history and shopping scene – Deborah didn’t need to venture far to feel immersed and inspired by the iconic destination.
From quick trips on the Metro and Maison Plisson – a sensory emporium of seasonal produce, cheese, espresso and pastries – to her apartment and the street below, the images capture Allure in simple yet elegant moments.
Describing her style as tomboy, with a touch of femininity introduced through jewellery, Deborah said she was intrinsically drawn to the more delicate South Sea pearl pieces.
This style mantra translates through the images, with her natural beauty and casual style complementing the ingrained elegance of the jewellery.
“The Allure pearls I took with me are classic, elegant, young and fresh, which makes them so easy to dress-up or down,” Deborah said.
“I think that’s important – jewellery that effortlessly complements your personal style – because that’s when they become an extension of you.”
She cherished their natural ability to enhance her paired back attire with minimal fuss.
“They can actually complement your skin-tone and complexion – your true beauty – which is so much more important than the outfit you’re wearing.”
Paying homage to the beauty of Paris came naturally to the creative, who said if she could live anywhere in the world it would be in the City of Love.
