On the streets of Marais
Late night drinks
Paris fashion week is of course one of the four main weeks – there is London, New York, Milan and Paris. It’s where the home of giants like Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent was born, its the mothership of fashion and haute couture. But its also where Serge Gainsbourg wrote "Je t’aime… moi non plus" and "Bonnie and Clyde" in one night, just because Brigitte Bardot asked him to write the most beautiful love song he could imagine. Whether the topic is fashion or culture Paris is simply just legendary, I guess no further arguments are needed. Our trip wasn’t so much about the big fashion shows, but more about experiencing the man on the street, and get a bite of french culture.
After lunch we wandered through Marais, stopped at a few events, spoke to some friends and had a couple of drinks. Fashion week is of course about the shows, but also very much about establishing business relations and meeting clients. We were of course there to meet up with new and interesting brands, and soon we will hopefully be able to present new stuff in the Dappad portfolio.
Another Paris classic on our route was Hotel Costes, maybe most famous for their bar, the courtyard and their world famous 15 lounge music compilations. If you want to be experience true Paris decadence, this is the place. We had a steak tatar in the courtyard, because its a prerequisite when in Paris, and Costes is not a bad place to enjoy it.
To finish of our Paris get away we went to the nightclub Silencio. It is designed by David Lynch and heavily inspired by the strange Club Silencio in Mulholland Drive. When you enter Silencio three floors down, you are overwhelmed by black and gold and an atmosphere where you get the feeling that anything can happen. People are extremely stylish and beautiful. At some point during the night we went into a secret door, that took us through the storage room and into an aluminum elevator… and from there we promised to stay off record :)
There is only one more thing to add, go to Paris, better sooner than later!
