tk One of the most underrated arrondissements in Paris is the 2nd but I have a feeling that it won’t be for long now that Céline has moved into their new headquarters. The chic company headed by CEO Marco Gobbetti and creative director Phoebe Philo recently finished restoration on Hôtel Colbert de Torcy a gorgeous 17th-century hôtel particulier that will house all their offices under one roof. The WSJ. Magazine gives a peek inside in their upcoming Taste Issue on newsstands April 4th but lucky for us, it’s online now.

The restored facade and courtyard of the Hôtel Colbert de Torcy on rue Vivienne.

The showroom full of flowers and a few pairs of shoes.


The floor in the showroom is made up of 12 different types of marble.


A photo I took this weekend of the Céline store in Soho with the same marble flooring. tk

Phoebe Philo oversaw the renovation of the building herself. tk
