A LET­TER FROM THE ED­I­TOR

Where Paris - - Welcome to Paris -

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.
