Loupot exhibit, Bibliotheque Forney, Depot-Vente Map

The Roaring 20s (l'Années Follies) are hot in Paris right no.
A free exhibit of master poster designer, Loupot is on at Bibliotheque Forney, 1, rue Figuier, 4e
Quite the dandy as a young artist, Charles Loupot was born in Nice, studied at the Beaux-Arts in Lyon.
And moved to Paris in 1923.
This carrot-top girl dressed all in orange eating a chocolate bar is a shock.
Loupot's figures are like sculptures.
The big shapes dominate the picture plane, yet are still feminine
Loupot worked with industrial clients. His forms are simplified, direct and fresh.
Loupot's Art Deco posters for aperitif St.-Raphaël. These designs covered metro station walls, trucks, drink glasses, even bottle openers. This is an exhibit worth a visit.
If you're looking for vintage clothes, especially to match Loupot's rouge et noir color scheme try Paris' depot-Ventes. Didier Ludot in the Palais Royal will be starting at the top. The creme de la creme of luxury brands with the prices to match.
In many shops you can rent a bag or outfit for just a day...say you're attending a Chanel show.
These are consignment shops, but most of the used clothing will be in fairly good condition.
Some may still have original price tags attached. The 16e is loaded with depot-ventes. Four to five shops can line one street.
Look for "Names, Sweetie Darling, names!" Still plenty of consignment shops have mid and lower price clothing. Some are a complete grab bag. Clothing tossed into boxes with a single price.
Riciproque in the 16e is the grandaddy of consignments shops. Over 5,000 square feet to explore in a string of stores on both sides of the street. A lot more adventurous shopping than just visiting Paris' big glam department stores if you're into treasure hunts.
Thank you for reading Parisbreakfast. If you enjoyed this post, forward to a friend. 
And don't miss the flowering trees across from Bibliotheque Forney.
Xxx Carolg and Bear🐻.

If you think that Art Deco is popular in Paris now, just wait until 2025!!! Cheers, Stephan

Everyone was influenced by Lautrec IMHO.
Émail is referring to enamel surfaces...I was curious too 😄

Delighted to learn its meaning. I also wondered. Love the consignment shop posts, too. Oh, to be in Paris for a week!

What a great exhibition! And free st a library, Paris is always the place to be. Those second hand shops look fun, even if you just look at everything. Another place to visit in Paris - merci! (I also noticed the Email word but thanks for explaining above).
