Art Basel Paris

I don’t know how I did it, but somehow or other yesterday; I went to the Ink show at 11, Dior Galerie at 1 (my sister found me inside the Metro! 

This is Guinness book of records material. Usually our meetups are historically such a mixup of delays and getting lost. Does this happen to you when meeting family members?).

Hôtel Lambert, Une Collection Princière, Sotheby’s


Some Summer nights, when Hôtel Lambert was all lit up, I’ve stood on pont Sully and wondered what was going on inside.

Yesterday I looked inside this 61-room hôtel particular or grand private mansion, built in the early 1640s on the Île Saint Louis thanks to Sotheby’s

Ines de la Fressange, Happiness book

When Flammarion sent me Ines de la Fressange’s new book, Happiness to review, it seemed a natural to make her into a Paris map like Audrey, Amelie and Holly Golightly.

Back in 2015, by chance I came across Ines de la Fressange at an event for magazine kiosquesin Saint Germain.
