116 | MAY + JUNE 2015 BY ALEXANDRA PECCI Parisian sensibilities make Sandra Sigman's floral arrangements something special. For the Love of Flowers photographs by Sarah Jordan McCaffery in-depth SHOP Les Fleurs is loved for its French- inspired floral arrangements. Most Americans in Paris swoon over the city's macaroons and crois- sants. But when Sandra Sigman lived in the City of Light, she found herself wandering the ancient streets of her neighborhood in search of flowers. "My mom would say to me, 'Go see what the flower shops are doing,'" says Sigman, who lived in Paris in the 1980s as a professional figure skater with Holidays on Ice. She'd report back to her mother about the Parisian florists wearing "gorgeous black aprons," working on their feet in tiny shops that were packed to bursting with blooms. The flowers in these shops were ar- ranged by color, rather than type. Clusters of pink roses, freesia, peo- nies, and tulips were all crammed together, and not tucked away in a cooler, but out for everyone to see.
