    Merci Concept Store // Paris.

    19th November

    And so we arrive to the final post about my recent trip to Paris for the Design Week. Today I’d like to tell you about my visit to Merci, a wonderful concept store in Le Marais. Chances are you’ve already seen a million photos from Merci, particularly of the iconic red Fiat in the courtyard which you can probably recognise in a heart beat even if you’ve never been there. There is definitely no shortage of crazy love and articles written about this retail gem. In fact, if you’ve ever consulted to any kind of Paris design guide, it is more than likely Merci was top of the list of places to visit. And there is a number of very good reason for this…

    Comme des Garçons “White Drama”, Cristóbal Balenciaga “Fashion Collector” & PGL by Pigalle // Les Docs, Paris.

    12th November

    Around Paris During The Design Week // 2012.

So I decided to bundle them all together in a post which is mostly related to Paris Design Week, but also the awesomeness of Paris in general (as a couple of the things I am sharing with you here are not related to the design week). Due to a huge amount of images which I always have such a hard time culling, I will bring you a couple of other posts focussing on different topics. So here goes…

    NOW! LE OFF // Paris Design Week 2012.

    So did you guys think I was all done with my Paris report? Well, you see, I’m only just getting started. Today I’m going to tell you about my time at Paris Design Week (10th-16th Sept 2012).
    One of the more interesting places we visited was now! le Off held at Les Docs, Cité de la mode et du design (City of Fashion and Design), an exhibition dedicated to emerging talent. Just the sort of thing that gets me really excited. Here are some of the highlights of the things we saw…
