As part of my doing research on my next novel ( pssst, can you keep a secret? It's a sequel to the first!) I found these pictures of recent Le Printemps windows: The chic Paris department store gave New York designers a lovely tribute. Aren't they simply fabulous?
And found this New York style café recently opened by a New York expat, the totally fabulous Merce ( she makes delicious coffee in fabulous vintage clothing, need I say more?), it's called Merce and the Muse, it's located in Le Marais and you can bet that I will stopping in for a treat next time I'm in town...
Finally, I came across these stunning posters this week created by French artist Vahram Muratyam.
A friendly visual match between those two cities, as seen by a Parisian-based-and-lover on New York : details, cliches and contradictions.
