So over the past year we've created 2 different collections with Mimi Thorisson, and it's done to say that we're obsessed with her! From her style to her natural beauty but most importantly we can't get enough of her food.

For those of you who don't follow her impeccable, raw yet delectable instagram page or her blog. I'll tell you a little bit about Mimi our crush of the year.
Mimi is an incredible chef, mother, wife and entrepreneur. She grew up in Hong Kong and Paris, her childhood was largely spent scurrying between the restaurants of Hong Kong, where she grew up, and the bistros of Paris. To put it simply Mimi is avid about food! After a diverse career she meet and married her her charming “Icelandic photographer husband” (is how she likes to describe him) and had 6 beautiful children. But 8 people in a Paris apartment became quite hard so they moved to the idilic village of Médoc in the French country side.
(This is her idyllic kitchen!)
Mimi now shares her life on instagram and it is the perfect culmination of 'Eat, pray, Love' and 'under the tuscan sun'! And now that we are all trying to up our culinary skills (at least I am) we thought who better than Mrs. Thorisson herself to bring zest, passion and more color into our kitchens.
