There’s Jimi Hendrix’s Gibson Flying V guitar, painted by the musician and dubbed “Love Drops.” He played the instrument for two years starting in 1967, and then gave it to Mick Cox of the Nike Air Max 95 Womens Irish band Eire Apparent, who Nike Air Max Tn Femme painted it black. In the 1990s, musician Dave Brewis acquired the piece and restored Hendrix’s original design.

One such project—a 10-acre compound in Provence—has been his and his wife Betty’s vacation home since the early 1990s.
“It was sort of half a ruin,” Betty Catroux says. “I don’t know how long it took [to renovate], but Fran?ois did everything—I didn’t do a thing.”
After some reflection, Catroux, who’s been a model and muse for Adidas ZX 750 Mujer the likes Nike Air VaporMax Femme of Yves Saint Laurent, settled on a construction timeline of “about two years.” It certainly, she adds, “took quite a while to furnish.”
Now the house, the grounds, and everything inside is on sale for $11.5 million, listed with Alexander Kraft of Sotheby’s International Realty France. “Now Fran?ois wants to go to the sea,” says Catroux. “He bought something next to Nice, so we’re going.”
The Nike Air Max 90 Femme property consists of a 16th century stone house, which is divided between main quarters and a separate guest section. In total, it measures about 5,300 square feet.

The fashion designer Saint Laurent, Catroux says, visited the house Adidas NMD Femme only once, when her daughter got married. “Saint Laurent is someone who never left his house,” she explains. “He would never go to stay at someone’s house, and we were very Nike Air Max 95 Femme lucky, because we all had our own houses, and we all just wanted to stay at home.”
Despite calling the home “a piece of heaven,” Catroux has no regrets about selling the property—and everything in it.
“Listen, I have no attachment to material things,” she says. “So it doesn’t move anything in me to sell, and I love the idea of starting new and leaving the rest behind. That’s the way I function.”
