The annual celebration of Bastille Day, commonly referred to as the French National Day (Fête Nationale), honours the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789, which took place during the French Revolution. Parades of Military forces, fireworks, concerts, and balls are typical celebrations that happen on the day. Thousands of Parisians broke into the prison on July 14, 1789, to protest King Louis XVI's abuse of authority. It was a pivotal point in the uprising that overthrew the monarchy and has helped foster the “fighting spirit”that France is well known for having today!
While France is well-known for many things, including its architecture, landscapes, cuisine and their literature, they have also made significant contributions to the worlds of fashion and jewellery over the years. They have given us fashion houses like Celine, Dior, and Chanel as well as iconic jewellery houses like Cartier, Bregeut, Dodane, and Yema, which are among our personal favourites here at Rapport. We highlight the timepieces from those brands that we particularly like and pair them with Rapport goods that would complement them wonderfully. Because these watches are classic objects, they must be coupled up with classic items!
