As some of you may know already, I am coming back to Paris where I grew up, in order to continue my studies in International Business.
This city may have some down sides, but one cannot deny that everything happens in Paris (or almost!). So from now on, many reviews and posts will be about French brands, restaurants, exhibitions, hiddens places, among many others.
Last weekend, I was at the Paris Design Week which happens once a year and aims to bring a broader audience to different designers, their work, studios, workshops, but also to secret bars and restaurants.

Unfortunetely I was outside of the country and only came back the last day of the Design Week. I went to the Cité de la Mode et du Design (City of Fashion and Design) and saw a very nice exhibition full of very talented creators.
All pieces were gorgeous and very interesting but I have to confess I had two main crushes:
– TOUTALENVERS by Gregory Saraceni – Loved how original this was. Basically his whole collection is about upside down cups, mugs, plates, that you can drink/eat in. I was so puzzled when I first looked at his work! This is pure genius!

– ECHOES by Charlotte Juillard – Let’s not even talk about the quality of these speakers that looked more than perfect. Now should we say something about this sleek design? I don’t even think so. White ceramic and leather details?. Perfection.

Shout out to these wonderful artists and all the others that were presenting their work there and who have done an amazing job.
Also, I loved how the whole event was organized. You could whether follow a map and detailed circuits with all the details you needed, or just go your way.
In any case some of these spots were temporarily open for the Design week but others are just nice addresses to keep in mind to wander around!
I really hope you enjoyed this kind of more “in the field” post.
I have more of these planned with more pictures that I personally took.
Let me know what you would like to see next!
