It's rare to find an American brand down avenue Montaigne, but Ralph Lauren deserves his place here, despite never having attended fashion college.
His trademark polo symbol and short sleeve mesh shirts, launched in the seventies and available in dozes of different colours, have become fashion classics, enabling him to build an empire worth nearly $3 billion.
Ralph Laurent is now over 20 different brands aimed at different markets, as many different perfumes, plus Ralph Lauren Home and even Ralph Lauren paint!
Of course it would be impossible to fit all that into one store, but the avenue Montaigne outlet would be the place to start when visiting Paris.
The renowned Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris is home, from February 24 until August 20, 2017, to the exhibition “Karel Appel. Art as Celebration!”.
“Karel Appel. Art as Celebration!” is an exhibition that sheds light on twenty-one works of art by the Dutch painter and sculptor Karel Appel (1921 – 2006).
The works on display, which are actually a donation from the Karel Appel Foundation, include some of the best paintings and sculptures that significantly marked the career of Appel from his CoBrA years until his death in 2006.
On the occasion of this exhibition, attendees will get the chance to view the artist’s famous Carnet d'art psychopathologique as well as many other veritable masterpieces including ceramic sculptures from the 1950s and big installations from the 1970s and 1990s.
The Hotels Paris Champs-Elysées are located at a short walking distance from the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
