Nous aimons Lille!

Alice the Fever shop manager recently went to soak up the arts and the old town scenery in the historical and artistic city of Lille.

Lille is an architectural feast with strong Flemish influences: from the Grand Place (with Austrian cannonballs still embedded in the facade) to the basilica of Norte-Dame-de-la-Treille to the quiet streets of row houses and gardens, Lille is also home to the Musee d'Art Moderne and the Palais des Beax Arts.

The Braderie de Lille was also the place that originally inspired our ‘Lille Pencil Dress’ pictured below;

Places of style note, ‘Rue Masurel’ for interiors and Aladdin cave style shops, Alice also took time to browse the vintage rails for shop window l'inspiration and go to Le moulin d'or an old theatre which has now been converted into a cafe/bar, pictured below;

She somehow managed to fit some repos et détente later in the day and visited the very famous ‘Meert’ patissiere located on Rue Esquermoise for a much needed Pain au chocolat!
