Last weekend I visited the photo exhibition “La Parisienne by Sofitel” in the Sofitel Legend Le Grand hotel in Amsterdam. I am very intrigued by la Parisienne so I could not wait to admire these photos. I’ve never been in this hotel but it was love at first sight 🙂 The glamorous place of the exhibition wore it to the atmosphere of Paris. I couldn’t stop taking photos. The 1930s style of the architecture, the lounge with the deep red and purple lights and velvet couches. A perfect place to relax after a whole day strolling in the city.
This hotel is situated between two canals and when you enter the lobby, you feel the “Amsterdam” ambiance mixed with French elegance and grandeur. I’ve never seen such a beautiful lobby in my life. I was also in love with the garden, which will be more beautiful during Spring and Summer.  This was the best location for this exhibition in my opinion.

The pictures of the exhibition can be divided into two categories: iconic historical images dating back to the 50s and images from now. The second group consists of photographs of young professional photographers and amateurs.

For me it was very interesting to analyze the photos. How do the Parisienne behave? What do she wear? What’s her favorite place to go? In further posts I will getting to the core of the characteristics of La Parisienne.

I would like to make apologies for the bad quality of the photos of Le Parisienne. I was struggling with the light and the reflections in the lobby 🙁
Apart from this, I hope you will enjoy them!

  1. Ik ben er ook geweest! Het hotel is zo mooi <3 Ik vond het wel echt jammer dat de foto's zo verspreid over de lobby hingen en niet echt in het zonnetje werden gezet daardoor. De foto's zelf vond ik wel ook echt mooi! 🙂 Kan er uren naar staren.

    • Het was soms even zoeken, dat klopt 🙂 en jammer van de enorme weerspiegeling maar de mooie lobby maakte veel goed 🙂

  2. It looks like a lovely place to visit! Also that massive light chandelier thing is stunning! I need a house big enough to own one of those, haha.
