10-11 March 2012 – What a weekend it was (and still is, as I’m writing)!
Paris was abuzz with ‘must go’ exhibitions – Louis Vuitton & Marc Jacobs’ newly opened exhibition as well as the last days of the Jean-Paul Goude retrospective at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, another newly-launched exhibition dedicated to Tim Burton (think Edward Scissorhands, Mars Attack and the 2010 Alice in Wonderland) at the French Cinémathèque, Henri Matisse‘s exhibition at Centre Pompidou etc – Colette’s 15th anniversary Carnival at the Tuileries Garden, the Omnivore World Tour which brings together young talented chefs (including Ryan Clift from the Tippling Club in Singapore) from around the world to conduct cooking classes/demonstrations at the Maison de la Mutualite and the 9th Salon du Vintage at the Marais (the list goes on…).
It literally feels like Paris is overflowing with energy as the mercury (and skirt length) rises. Days or weekends like these, I remember why I adore and love this city. Buzz and excitement aside, I’m loving the opportunities to people-watch and appreciating the French flair and fashion.
The glasses, the turned-up jeans and the round patch with no hair made him a stand-out. The pink coat’s a stunner while there are some who obviously love red.
Colette’s 15th anniversary Carnival catered to both children and adults.
Loving this young lady’s ensemble and ethereal look.
