Kasia Dietz’s Canvas Totes are inspired by prints designed by Kasia’s mom in the 70’s, more recently evolving into her own individual style. Each canvas bag is hand-painted, resulting in a unique piece of wearable art, reversing to reveal another one-of-a-kind creation. List price 75 €.

Mont Blanc’s Princess Grace watch has a silhouette and classical beauty reminiscent of similar traits embodied by Gracia Patricia. The symbol of the rose petal in the form of a pink sapphire teardrop adorns the dial and also serves as a marker for the 6 o’clock position. The brand’s symbol appears as a mother-of-pearl inlay on the crown. List price $3,215.

All of the photos and descriptions were taken directly from the vendors’ websites. The Weekend In Paris did not receive any compensation for providing you with this list. Happy shopping!

    Great list. Especially the watch. French macaroons would be a good gift for Francophiles.

    Chocolate is one of the four food groups (along with wine, coffee and cheese). Next stop, La Maison du Chocolat!

      Dear Anne,

      I totally agree with you! La Maison du Chocolat is heaven and ships to the US which is even better. I can get my fix in between times in Paris.

      Cheers,
      Priscilla
