A venerable institution (founded over 130 years ago) and one of the chicest names in the business (although the competition is string down the Champs Elysées) Lancel has its flagship store here ready to wow you with its luxury leather goods.
Yep, that means bags. Big bags, small bags, handbags, luggage. Ladies will be in paradise here. Gentlemen might find a key fob or wallet to keep them distracted.
Now trying to shake off its slightly dusty image, Lancel now has French movie legend Isabelle Adjani in its ads and even designing some its bags. Some might say that's it's difficult to tell which of them looks more leathery these days...
The Grand Palais will be hosting the modern and contemporary art fair better known as “Artparis” this April...
On this occasion, it will showcase the work of a hundred of the most vibrant French and foreign galleries that appear to be particularly representative of the international modern and contemporary art market.
Retaining its modern-contemporary slant, this significant Parisian art event offers a comprehensive overview of modern art from the 1900s onwards while also featuring a wide range of works by major contemporary artists, French or resident in France, and up-and-coming young artists representing the current French art scene.
“Artparis” brings together about a hundred French and foreign galleries from 14 countries under the glass roof of the Grand Palais over a five-day period.
For this edition, artparis will present a thematic exhibition, specifically dedicated to China Contemporary arts.
