I have to admit G was very good whilst away in China and exercised brilliant restraint in his purchases. His buys were well thoughtout (considering the travelling involved) and, as a recipient of gifts, great choices! Here’s a short gallery of some of the China buys.
1) Silk: pillow covers, scarfs, placemats; 2) CHAMPAGNE; 3) La Grande Dame, 1996, said to be “Champagnes of momumetal structure, high in alcohol and acidity, real keepers” according to the bible of wines: Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book, 2007
4) the gorgeous, soft as a baby’s bottom silk scarf; 5) Prada purse for my sister; 6) inlaid chopsticks and a bone spoon for our caviar
7 & 8) G’s Philippe Patak watch (sigh); 9) the LV digital camera case
