Les années folles return to Paris

Steichen7 White - Edward Steichen © 1935, Condé Nast Publications
For a blast of flapper-tastic Parisian action explore the changing fashions that hit the runway after WWI, bob your hair into a garçonne style, smoke in public and learn how to dance the "Black Bottom".....

Or simply, check out the Edward Steichen photography exhibition at the Jeu de Paume - Steichen's talent, business acumen and networking skills established him as a serious painter and art photographer before he became as famous as the celebrities he photographed in the 1920s for Vanity Fair and Vogue.

Lalande Digital Printing Press and art blog

Photo by David Mccairley
Artist and writer Matthew Rose has another string to his bow, he works with Lalande Digital Art Press and many of the I V Y artists have benefited from his printing advice. The company have started a new blog to highlight some of the fun jobs they do. I can vouch for the fact they are quick, efficient and pleasant to deal with.

The posts talk in further detail about the artist's works than just the job they are having printed; read about David Mccairley's adventures at the Paris Tattoo fair or the wine label we created for Stormhoek as sponsors's of the IVY paris exposition held at the Chapelle Saint-Louis de la Pitie-Salpêtrière May 2006..

Design Expo

20070704_150704_affichecompleteEver since IKEA made furniture with a contemporary twist affordable, the first thing people ask when they walk into their friend's new apartment is, "Did you get that at IKEA?" If you are looking for a break from the Swedes monopoly, check out l'Espace d'Animation des Blancs Manteaux, a large creative venue for art and design shows...

Scooter en parfait état

My friend is reluctantly selling his adored scooter on Ebay. It would help me a lot in terms of getting around but I can't see myself trundling round the Place de la Concorde or Bastille.

Salone Internazionale del Mobile - Milan

The Salone Internazionale del Mobile is one of the world’s most revered furniture and design shows with over 2,500 exhibitors from nearly 40 different countries. For more details and a full list of exhibitors, visit Cosmit. Wallpaper* are covering Salone live day-by-day.

Springwise alerted me to a cool idea connected to the Salone Del Mobile in Milan: bed sharing. (not quite as exciting as it sounds but...)This would go down a treat for events happening in Paris and other cities, it's so much more fun to stay with city residents than in a hotel.
