Jardin d’Hiver


Thin strands streak across
a topaz blue or dark green winter sky

In the Jardin des Plantes, she saunters
along bare tree-lined paths, with her…
something… tenderness…
around her neck a cashmere Jardin d’Hiver scarf,
signed by François Rénier

It is a January morning, a chance meeting
at a turn on a path –
her very pale green leather bag
set off with lemon-coloured handles
her lined tawny gloves
a heather carpet strewn with mauve blotches

Paris is a garden

Let François Rénier’s new Autumn/Winter 2016-2017 collection lead you to inspiration
