Simone de Beauvoir has been in a good amount of my thoughts lately: I am currently reading Les Mandarins (another book I recommend!). Also, a week ago, I came across Les amants du Flore on television during a sleepless night while visiting my parents. I'll say it right away, I don't approve of the actor playing Sartre, but I can't take Anna Mouglalis as Mlle de Beauvoir out of my mind, whether it be in her actions and ideas, 1930's and 40's clothing or spending time in cafés, working, thinking. Her portrayal left me with a great impression. So here's to Simone de Beauvoir, Les amants du Flore and also, to throw in esthetics, her signature turban that I've been sporting for a few months before knowing this fact. It is now a key reference.
A small something inspired by Les amants du Flore's images.
