A LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
This month marks the season of the arts and the French capital is not welcoming one major event but two fairs that avid art collectors will not want to miss. FIAC, the International Contemporary Art Fair, will be held for the 44th time and will bring together 192 different galleries from 29 countries. Meanwhile, the Art Elysées - Art & Design show will be bringing together 70 French and international galleries.
The City of Light will also be hosting major art exhibitions including Gauguin the Alchemist at the Grand Palais and Pop Art, Icons that Matter at Musée Maillol, which explores the world of pop art.
In this issue we also take you on a tour of the Cognac region, taking you from one world-famous cognac house to another as well as introducing you to Parisian spots where you can taste the famous drink.
Visiting Paris is of course never complete without a little, or a lot, of shopping. In our Excess Gaming photo shoot we bring you the key pieces from our favourite jewellery and timepiece houses to make sure you win every fashion game.
For our readers who want to eat their way through the city our Dining pages are bursting with excellent tables to sample, covering your every meal from breakfast to lunch and from high tea to dinner time. Meanwhile, in our Entertainment section you will find a round up of musicals, sexy cabarets and some great bars for original cocktails, we even bring Oktoberfest to you here in the French capital.
We hope you enjoy this issue and your stay in Paris.
