We went to the Pompidou Centre while in Paris, which is an amazing building and collection. The main show that was up was a feminist art retrospective, and I was not that into it. The permanent collection was stellar though. For me (and this is kind of telling), the best part of this particular museum trip was the gift shop. Here are two brooches by Yazbukey that I drooled over, they come in brooch form as shown or with attached ribbon to be worn as a necklace.
Yazbuckey was started by two sisters Yaz and Emel who are (according to their website) Ottoman Princesses and descendants of Mehmet Ali Pasha the King of Egypt. The sisters have settled in Paris and after attending Studio Bercot fashion school (but not before interning and working for Christian Lacroix, Martin Margiela, and Givenchy to name a few) started their own bright pop inspired accessory line.
