Behind the Scenes: Blanc's Parisian Buying Trip for Spring '18 (Installment #2)

Bonjour! Today finds Blanc Boutique's San Anselmo store manager, Ouida Chichester, in the Vlas Blomme showroom. Vlas Blomme creates beautiful cotton/linen garments known for their super superior softness and quality. The properties of linen render it perfect for all seasons, wicking away moisture in high temperatures to keep the body cool and dry, and conducting heat in colder temperatures to preserve body temperature.  Year 'round beauty, comfort and impeccable Japanese styling...yes, please!

Meanwhile, Blanc's owner Nancy Mayer and her husband, Willy, are busy at the Avant Toi showroom choosing some perfect pieces.  Avant Toi revolutionized the art of yarns, knits and piece dying by using air-brush coloring that empowers each piece with a unique, unrepeatable character. Destroyed, blended and spray-painted are only a few of the continuously evolving treatments applied to each garment. Truly wearable art. It looks like Willy approves!
