The official programs have arrived! To honor Hollywood’s biggest night we are ‘going gold’ all week. Are you ready to celebrate?
BASKETBALL / HERMES
Only two Hermès basketballs were created last year at the special-order atelier in Paris under the creative direction of Pierre-Alexis Dumas. Of course a third can always be ordered… An American classic reinvented by the French!
Hedi Slimane of Saint Laurent is not the only French fashion star discovering the delights of Los Angeles.
Vogue Paris correspondent to the United States, Carole Sabas, has her finger on the pulse of all things magnifique in America. The Marseille-born, New York-living fashion writer, who has already published one of our favorite guides to NYC, turns her eye towards the Californian sunshine with ”Los Angeles: The Fashion Friendly Guide” via Vogue.fr.
Shouldn’t every morning begin this way?
The best of France meets the best of #LA at Sofitel. What a perfect Thanksgiving weekend in Beverly Hills!
For a taste of Paris in Los Angeles this fall, head up from Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills to 370 N Rodeo Drive to see the window displays at Cartier. The jeweler has constructed silvery-tone metal architectural silhouettes to call to mind imagery of the Grand Palais in Paris. The unique structures serve as a backdrop, of course, to the gorgeous jewels on display; Our favorite? How about this wonderful diamond ring that truly lights up the window. Shall we add it to your Christmas present list?
Downtown Los Angeles - once a largely blighted area deserted after business hours - is filling up with lights, luxury landmarks. Today downtown Los Angeles is bustling with great restaurants, shopping, museums, and a number of great tourist attractions. In fact since 2008 over 500 new restaurant and retail shops have opened, with more on the way this year. Not to be missed is the California Science Museum and the 30,000-square-foot Grammy Museum. Go explore!
