Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Whatever your Friday plans are—cancel them. This Friday in The Living Room, a stunning resort wear collection, Bombay Babe will be on sale.

While browsing the beautiful clothing, we’ll make sure you’re not dry-handed, by pouring complimentary Miss Molly bubbly!

Need to do your Christmas shopping for the gorgeous women in your life? Look no further. Or, there’s no time like the present to get a gift for yourself.

“The Bombay Babe is amorphous and unidentifiable. She wears a bag made in the largest slum of the world, Dharavi, and mixes it with a vintage watch or a designer garment. It’s irreverence and the juxtaposition of things – labels have become too sacred, and too easy a way to access glamour or style. Discretion is the real luxury.”

Tip: Do all your Christmas shopping in one go. Head to our Le Creuset pop-up for luxe kitchen items, and B. gorgeous for summer accessories, jewellery, sandals, hats, beauty products and more.

Le Creuset’75

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013
Yesterday we launched our Le Creuset pop-up store! All browsers were treated to a complimentary cocktail, which we specially created for the occasion.
Le Creuset’75 is a twist on a classic French 75 (gin, lemon and champagne) with the addition of Earl Grey flavours.
We chatted to our consultant barman Matthew Roberts about the special drink: “The gin is frozen down to -20*C and then a couple of spoons Lady Bonin’s loose leaf Earl Grey tea is added. With this drop in temperature it allows us to only extract the gentle perfumes of the tea leaves rather than the thick, bitter tannins.
“The tannins are a quality of the finished product, with slowing the whole infusion process down it allows us to extract just the right amount of tannins to help the London Dry Gin appear dryer still but without becoming astringent.
“The gin is ‘thrown’ together with fresh lemon juice and just a touch of sugar and then lengthened with Miss Molly Bubbly, MCC. The drink is bright and fresh with the fine mousse of the wine carrying the Earl Grey perfumes to the top of the glass. Served up and garnished with lemon oils.”

Le Creuset pop-up store set to open at Le Quartier Français!

LE CREUSET POP-UP STORE SET TO OPEN AT LE QUARTIER FRANÇAIS!
“Le Creuset is excited to partner with Le Quartier Français in Franschhoek; it’s our first pop-up
store in South Africa!” said Ben Paine, managing director of the stylish cookware range.
Opening 1 October 2013, the pop-up shop will have a range of Le Creuset’s best sellers – both
new and classic designs in all the bright and bold colours the brand is known for (much like LQF
itself!).
The inaugural shop will also offer Môreson Méthode Cap Classique, and a range of specially
created Le Quartier merchandise designed to complement the Le Creuset products such as:
aprons, recipe cards, notebooks, a bespoke range of knives, and Tina Jewell’s famous fudge
from Bread & Wine.
“We’re thrilled to be hosting a Le Creuset shop,” said Susan Huxter, owner of LQF. “The synergy
between the two brands is fantastic!”
“Le Creuset and Le Quartier are wonderful complements to each other; and the brands live
well together. We love using Le Creuset as part of our everyday service—from the tea cups for
breakfast to the pans in the kitchen. We believe our guests like to live the same way at home as
when they are with us.”
“The pop-up shop suits Franschhoek and gives something special to the locals—who now don’t
have to leave the village in search of the perfect gift.”
