Happy Bastille Day!
For our French culture novices, Bastille Day is to France what July 4th is to the USA, so a celebration is both necessary and encouraged. Since we can't make it to Europe for the holiday, we will do what is second best and admire it from afar.
And what's not to love about France? Between the art, architecture, and food, it is one of the most elegant countries on Earth. Without it, the world would be culturally flat, and we at Katherine Feiner would lack some serious inspiration.
So, in honor of French independence, check out some of our favorite French or French-inspired people, places, and items!
Provence-Gordes (Katherine's favorite town!)
French Press Coffee (A must-have at the office)
Claudette Restaurant in NYC
Chez Josephine Dumonet in Paris
Café de Flore in Paris
Marie Antoinette's Versailles Bed
"Locks of Love" Bridge in Paris
French Designer Lanvin
Musée d'Orsay in Paris
Chez Oskar in NYC (the best moules frites in the city!)
