The whole team has arrived safely at our gorgeous loft apartment in the Marais district of Paris. Le Marais is famous for its quaint cobble stone paths, stand-alone boutiques, cozy brasseries and buzzing artistic energy. Once we were all settled in, a couple of us went for a stroll around the neighborhood to get an idea of our surroundings. We came across some incredible street art near the Centre Pompidou, Paris' museum of modern art, and we discovered that Le Marais is teeming with up-and-coming designers and gorgeous small stores filled with devine merchandise. We ended the evening with a curbside drink at a local bar du vin, and a warm meal with our beautiful friend, Imogen, from sass & bide at a restaurant around the corner where we ran into the charming Marios Schwab. Definitely a successful day. And now it's time to get ready for Hussein Chalayan's show!
