 SON NOGUERA by FIONA

How could I not write about Fiona in my blog!!! We have been living for about 10 years in Mallorca.

This Island is magic and inspires many artiste because of the very special light.

Fiona developed a very unique taste of colors, mixture of materials and tradition, inspired by her childhood on the Island. Since one year she started her own collection. SON NOGUERA is a tribute to the know-how of the Majorcan people, who have been making the famous fabric, Roba de Llengües for many generation.

SON NOGUERA offers a fresh and young interpretation of the traditional motifs commonly found in  the island s homes, in each of her bags.Matched with colorful linen pareos , the first beach collection was born.

Her first private sale was in Vienna last year. Since this moments the success grow from day to day.

France’s Elysée presidential palace is set to auction off its wine cellar to fund a cheaper collection and return some money to the French state, a Paris auction house said Tuesday. The 1,200 bottles are set to go on sale May 30 and 31.

By FRANCE 24 ext)

Wines from the French presidential cellar will be auctioned off in Paris next month with 1,200 bottles on offer, auctioneers Drouot said on Tuesday.

The goal of the sale, which will take place on May 30 and 31, is to allow the Elysée Palace to refresh its wine collection without drawing on public funds. The sale could be viewed as a symbolic move by the French presidency in a time of biting austerity and with a ballooning public deficit.

“In the spirit of good management, the proceeds of this sale will be reinvested in more modest wines,” Drouot said, adding that any funds not used will be returned to the French state.

The estimated value of the various wines up for auction ranges from a modest 15 euros to 2,200 euros ($2,800) for a Petrus 1990, Drouot said in a statement. The wines on offer represent a tenth of the presidential cellar, it said.

All those on offer, largely Burgundy and Bordeaux, but also including wines from the Loire and Alsace, have been served at the table of the French president at one time or another, Drouot said.

The Elysée Palace’s wine cellar was created in 1947 and renovated in 1995.
