Coard Collection Exhibit

You know what they say… Paris is always a good idea, from fashion, food and even art! And the most recent exhibit by talented Parisian, Patrick Coard, got me saying “Ooh la la” and totally curious about his collection of bronze-patina brass sculptures.

But even if his roots are in France, living in Manila with his beautiful little family — and especially his little one, River Luna — is what really inspired this collection. Our children really are our greatest gift and inspiration.

Excited to experience his sculptures and lighting creations, I headed for W/17 in Makati. And who else to welcome me but some of my fave people? Glad to go around the exhibit with them and, of course, drinks were on the house.

Huge cheers to dear Kaye Tinga for having us enjoy this experience. We want to see more collections from Coard, oui oui! Cheers!
