A LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
Paris is the fashion capital of the world and it is where fashion designers from all over the world dream of showcasing their collections, and in this issue we meet Youn Chong Bak, the Artistic Director of Essius, who shows their collections every season during Paris Fashion Week. The designer shares with us her unique role in menswear and her best packing advice. While fashion is a draw for the city, Paris also boasts an extraordinary number of museums, making it one of the top cultural destinations in the world for art lovers, and this month we bring you the must-see shows taking place at the Petit Palais, Centre Pompidou and Musée du Luxembourg. In this issue we also bring you our Drinks and Diamonds photo shoot, which is spilling over with the most exquisite jewellery creations, and of course we bring you all the latest trends from some of our favourite fashion brands for both ladies and gentlemen, which you will discover in our Shopping pages. Meanwhile, our Dining pages are bursting with new tables to discover to satisfy the most dedicated foodies visiting the French capital looking to eat their way through it. Dinner cruises are also on the menu with fine fare and beautiful landmarks punctuating your dinner. We also bring you the month’s not-to-be-missed shows in our Entertainment section as well as the new bars to discover for cocktail hour. We hope you enjoy this issue and your stay in Paris.
