You know that something's special when people are endlessly taking photographs of themselves in front it. Welcome then to the high altar of Louis Vuitton worship.
It doesn't get more chic than this: the flasghsip Louis Vuitton store is not only eye-wateringly expensive (not that we were expecting anything else) but also holds smart (free) exhibitions on the 7th floor.
Plus, their window displays are shamelessly bling-bling-bling (yep, one more bling than everyone else).
Slightly kitsch perhaps, but essential for any Paris visit.
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.
