PALAIS ROYAL


SOME FASHION HISTORY TODAY. Palais Royal was built by Cardinal Richelieu in the 17th century. When he passed away, it became property of the Royal Family first and of the Orlean’s Dukes later. After a “decadent” period, while they wasted a lot of moneys in pleasures and parties, the Orlean's Dukes decided to rebuilt a part of the palace; they made a beautiful garden surrounded by galleries (which you can see in the pictures), renting the spaces along them in order to make money. It was here that the very first shops with actual windows appeared. It was a luxury area, which soon became a place for people to socialise outside the court. Here, the first cafés were born and, after the French revolution, also the first restaurants. The oldest restaurant is the Grand Vefour, which is still open to this day (even if I think a risotto is around 80 €). I studied it as school last year and I really love to have the chance to actually see it for real! I leave you with my outfit :) Enjoy! 

UN PEU D’HISTOIRE DE LA MODE AUJOURD’HUI. Palais Royal a était construit par le Cardinal Richlieu pendant le 17ème siècle . Quand il mourut, le palais devint propriété des Ducs d’Orleans. Après une période de “décadence”, où ils gaspillèrent une somme importante d’argent en plaisirs et fêtes, ils déciderent de reconstruire un partie de palais. Il fut transformé en un magnifique jardin avec des galléries qui l’entouraient (que vous pouvez voir dans le photos), afin de louer les espaces pour gagner de l’argent. C’est ici que les magasin avec les vitrines apparaissent pour la première fois. C’était un endroit de luxe, qui bientôt devint un espace pour l’aristocratie où se rencontrer en dehors de la court. 
Ici, les premiers cafés apparaissent et, après la revolution, aussi les restaurants. Le restaurant le plus ancien est le Grand Vefour, où on peu encore déjeuner aujourd’hui (meme si un risotto coûte aux alentours de 80 €). J’ai étudié ce palais à l’école l’année dernière, j’adore pouvoir le voir en vrai! Je vous lasse avec ma mise :) Amusez vous!

UN PO’ DI STORIA DELLA MODA OGGI. Il Palais Royal fu costruito per volere del Cardinal Richelieu nel XVII secolo. Quando morì, il palazzo diventò proprietà dei duchi d’Orleans. Dopo un periodo di “decadenza”, in cui i duchi sprecarono gran parte del loro patrimonio in feste e “piaceri”, essi decisero di ricostruire una parte del palazzo per trasformarlo in un magnifico giardino con delle gallerie attorno, al fine di affittare questi spazi per guadagnare dei soldi. 
È proprio qui che nacquero i primi negozi con vetrine. Era un’area lussuosa, che presto divenne uno spazio in cui l’aristocrazia si incontrava al di fuori della corte. 
Qui, apparirono i primi café e, dopo la rivoluzione francese, anche i primi ristoranti. Il primo fu il Grand Vefour, dove potete ancora andare oggigiorno (ma un risotto costa intorno agli 80 €!). Ho studiato la storia di questo palazzo a scuola e adoro poterlo vedere dal vivo! Vi lascio con il look che ho scelto :). Enjoy!
