The windows of the Bon Marché always make you stop in the middle of the street. 2013 starts with a curious project by Kerry Lemon, who has lengthened the legs of several animals to turn them into a hybrid: skating pigs, skiing foxes of birds in sneakers. The sneaker craze seems to have conquered the city, stemming from the overwhelming success of the Beckett sneakers by Isabel Marant.
Sometimes geometry is in the smallest details: in a moment of a shooting making of, we can suddenly encounter this combination of coloured squares and a pair of Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2013 shoes that seem to be made of triangles and rectangles with a 60s inspiration…
On Sunday mornings we can still go on an expedition without leaving Paris. We only have to venture to the Marché aux puces de St Ouen. In its galleries and alleys you can find anything from an amazing art decó lamp to an anatomy class torso. You only need to wander and imagine each object in that space in your living room!
One of the best things about living surrounded by fashion in Paris is the possibility of seeing the collections in detail. Like this, after the presentation of Carven’s pre-fall collection, you only have to imagine the shootings you can organise with each garment… or where you see yourself wearing them!
There are few spots more special than the Place des Vosgues in the middle of the day. It is a unique place where time seems to stop still. It’s not that it seems to belong to a different era; it’s more that time seems to have chosen to pass ten times slower than usual there to allow us to enjoy it calmly, in its peak.
And, since every spot always hides a secret, now that it’s winter just by looking above our heads we can find a tangle of bare branches silhouetted against the cloudy sky of the Buttes-Chaumont park.
