In Avignon

I visited Avignon during summer.
In the 14th century, Avignon underwent an extensive development during the residency of popes. Now, it has transformed into a peaceful provincial city.

The Rhone River overflowed so the half of the bridge is gone.
I can’t imagine this quiet river had a flood.
I was very healed by the beautiful landscape.
I’m so glad that I was able to charge so much energy here!

Southern France

I went to Southern France in summer.
I was able to charge up my energy before the busy days of preparation for the collection.
There were many buildings with stone walls and was able to feel the history.

I stayed at a place a little far from center of Avignon.
The building of the hotel was from the middle ages and was renovated.
It was a beautiful hotel! At the hotel, I ran into Yukiko, who is a vintage shop owner near Malet! So surprised! Thank you very much for everything!
I found a cute swan ornament inside the hotel!
There were couple of wild swans outside the hotel and I felt like I time slipped to the 17th century.

Also I found many snails sticking together on a branch and was very cute.
From now hard working days are coming!
