Final Day in Paris ~ Sabbia Rosa

Sabbia Rosa lingerie boutique in Paris
I have been traveling to Paris for many years to cover the Intimate Apparel market.  It’s somewhat serendipitous, having studied French in depth when I was young with romantic expectations of another career, perhaps working for the UN.  Proving that expertise in a culture and a language can serve any end goal; I am applying all those skills in another mission, sustaining the soul of lingerie. And there is nothing quite the same as a Parisian boutique to clearly define it.  Sabbia Rosa - ParisEvery single time I travel here, I stop at Sabbia Rosa, the archetypal Intimates shop located in the elegant Rue St. Père on the Left Bank.  This time, I had the privilege of chatting with Monette Moat, the founder of this 35 year old boudoir.  Sabbia Rosa is a banquet of sophisticated silk underpinnings available in up to 25 colors that are updated every season.  Handmade in luxurious silk and Calais laces produced 100 % in France; every piece is cut on the bias to insure this brand’s signature feminine allure.  This tiny shop attracts customers from all over the world and is recognized as a ‘must visit’ destination for photographers, stylists and designers interested in the essential art of lingerie.
