Emanuel Maffeolit Ungaro was born in Aix en Provence in France after his parents fled the fascist regime in Italy, and moved to Paris aged 22, following his father's trade of sewing. After initially working for Balenciaga and then Courrèges, he opened his own fashion house in 1965. Since then, the brand name has grown around the world and branched out into menswear and perfumes.
Ungaro is hardly a newcomer to avenue Montaigne: his first boutique here opened in 1968 and you'll find both his women's and men's collections presented here. If there's one definitive place to shop for Ungaro in Paris, it's here.
If you love photography, then you will surely love the exhibition “Camera in Love” which is hosted by the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume from June 13 to September 24, 2017.
The exhibition showcases the works of Ed van der Elsken who is widely considered one of the most famous Dutch photographers of the 20th century.
The show aims to reveal the poetic nature of Ed van der Elsken, his solidarity with others and the empathy that he showed towards all living creatures. It spotlights a large selection of his iconic photographs which he captured in the streets of Paris in the 1950s and on his trips to Amsterdam, Hong Kong, and Tokyo in the 1960s. It also features some of his books and excerpts from his movies.
