Meet the Blogger
My name is Supal Desai and Chevrons & Éclairs is a London-based lifestyle blog curated by myself sharing impressions and reflections as I explore each corner of the world from popular European city-breaks to exotic villages in Rajasthan, India. Through documentary video and photography, C&É’s travels and international lifestyle are depicted through fashion, food, culture and design. Sometimes I even write blogs about London, of course!
Growing up, my family gifted me the opportunity to travel often. Mostly to India where we visited our family, but on each visit I would pen my thoughts and jot down places to revisit on future trips. C&É’s aim is to visit hidden gems like boutique hotels, local shops, and impressive restaurants that make a place and it’s culture + community unique. Each blog post is then written like a narrative curating impressions, reflections and information of places visited embedded between documentary-style visuals.
The blog name Chevrons & Éclairs comes from a French antique shoppe I would visit when I lived in Washington, DC. The long strands of pearls, to the tufted headboards-I often dreamt of going to Paris. One particular rug, made of Persian silk threads, always caught my eye. With an éclair in hand from the bakery next door, the blush and gold lining and the subtle chevron pattern came to be the most typical combination of all for some weekend perusing.
In the past, C&É has successfully collaborated with global brands like Boden, Anthropologie, Whole Foods, Harrods, Clinique and a number of travel agencies and tourism boards around the world. For collaborations, please use the contact form below to get in touch.
