The New Paris by Lind­sey Tramuta

Hong Kong Tatler Homes - - FRONT PAGE -

Ah, Paris: the city where we all dream of liv­ing, but never quite feel at home when we visit. Should we only eat in tra­di­tional (read: touristy) brasseries in Saint Ger­main? And what about all the rules? Can we re­ally not drink flat whites, eat non-French food and wear colours other than black or navy? Luck­ily for any would-be Parisians out there, help is at hand with The New Paris, a book that ex­plores the com­plex­ity and rich­ness of con­tem­po­rary Paris, de­bunk­ing the tired clichés and cel­e­brat­ing the ex­cit­ing di­ver­sity of the city. In the past few years, a flood of new ideas and cre­ative lo­cals has in­fused a once static, tra­di­tional city with a new open-minded sen­si­bil­ity and en­ergy—which means the once strict Parisian rule­book is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly ob­so­lete.
