Psych Surf-Rock Band La Femme on Recording in a Castle and Making the Hop to Paris

Many people who have been under hypnosis describe the experience as a unique trance that mysteriously stimulates physical and emotional sensations. Emotions may suddenly become heightened, the body may seem to be disconnected from the self, or vivid visuals may come to mind. And yet, despite these profoundly concentrated sensitivities, one can feel entirely relaxed. The hypnotic, psychedelic surf-rock of […]

Alex Assouline: Art Publishing Heir Apparent

“When I was six, I was drawing a lot, and my parents decided to publish me, just like that. So I basically became the youngest ‘author’ of my generation."

I meet the young publishing scion Alexandre Assouline at the front door of Deyrolle—his favourite secret place in Paris: a remarkable cabinet of curiosities a few blocks from the Musée d’Orsay. He has an unexpectedly quiet demeanour, and speaks dexterous English with a gentle French accent. We stroll down the cluttered isles of taxidermy and oddment. The 23-year-old heir to […]

Acclaimed Writer Thomas Bidegain Directs His First Film

“It’s a film about the community and ourselves. What can we do? Are we trying to hold on to the thing—are we going to be obsessive, are we going be permissive?"

I meet the writer and director Thomas Bidegain on a sunny summer morning in Manhattan, and the French screenwriter—and longtime collaborator with acclaimed director Jacques Audiard—A Prophet (2009), Rust and Bone (2012)—certainly cuts a keen figure, his green starburst eyes glowing against the pale blue sky. It’s a poetic setting in which to meet the man who made his directorial […]

Parisian Model-Turned-Photographer Linda Bujoli Speaks to us about Writing With Light

The name Linda Bujoli is known in the bohemian underground scene of Paris for various cultural interventions and photographic projects, such as the publicly exhibited sound sculpture exhibition Land Me and the open-call portraiture project Call To Light. In a world where the definition of what makes an artist is steadily expanded, Bujoli is a refreshingly low-key proposition—an artist living […]

Flaunt <3 Day Dreaming

Shots from All Day I Dream NYC

Dreaming at night has been passé ever since decadence became sharpened by darkness, and ever since us creatures of the evening began requiring the daylight for sleep. Jet lag, party lag, night lag, uppers, downers, kickers, caffeine, Nyquil, and nembutal, there’s plenty of ways to lead the insensate craving brain down twisted corners of vanishing perspective, where day dreams become […]

“Oh La La Land” at Mannerheim Gallery, Paris

In the spirit of our Fall Fashion issue, Oh La La Land—an idealized amalgam of Paris and Los Angeles: two cities who, like myself and my Saturday morning uber driver, seem to have nothing in common, but are in fact inextricably linked (did you know almost all digital animation is done in Paris these days?!)—we reached out to Jenny Mannerheim, […]
