"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"


OMG! You might wonder why the hell I open today*s post with a picture of a naked lady showing her "sexy" legs...
Well last night was "ART NIGHT", a regular feature with friends, where we explore the depths of Paris*s swank art scene. And if we can*t find any, we*ll just create some ourselves.

Last evening started with a visit to the Galerie du Passage, where famed Paris shoe designer Christian Louboutin presented limited edition shoes with a twist of shoe fetishism, and a taste for the extreme. He asked David Lynch (who already commissioned Louboutin to make shoes for an exhibition he was hosting at Fondation Cartier back in March this year) to picture his creations in a non-conventional way, using model dancers out straight out of the Crazy Horse.

Now the result may look like heaven for straight people, but I really loved the shoes...
The high heels of horror

This pair is fused by the heel. A nice idea for people who walk a lot..
a foot cage?
The ambiance of the galerie is a very special one, since the small rooms are stocked with design classics from all periods. Another excellent reason why I love this place!
Mmmh, my favorite plush armchair

Hanging around town, Benjamin went for some beer
Or is that an energy drink?
The gallery openings where scarce. Cheap if not to say the least, but that may be due to the fact that we went for dinner before the vernissages and might have lost the opportunity to get the traditional glimpse at Andrée Putman and all the other regulars.
We went from one closed gallery to the next, but we had fun nevertheless.
It was "throw-out-your-old-furniture-the-trash-truck-is-coming" night, so we decided to take the opportunity and stage an impromptu photo shoot in a narrow street somewhere.

"Bartender, a drink please!"
"Oh this existentialism is killing me"
Anyone in the need for a cooking platform?
Where*s my dry martini?

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
