Metlinks OTW : Week 4, 25.09.09

Another week, and with a blink of an eye, it’s the end of September. As autumnal weather sets in, amusingly enough (at least for a non-fashionista like me), it’s the Spring Summer 2010 Ready-to-Wear collections that will be showcased in Paris Fashion Week (30 September 2009 – 8 October 2009). So how about some links that caught our attention in the last week? (See, we don’t plan seasons ahead) ;-)

Pavillon de Flore

  • Vogue on Champs-Elysées! 90 years of Vogue covers, some 80 chosen to be exhibited, from 1st October to 1st November 2009. See how fashion evolved, admire the iconic figures gracing the covers and the photographic talent behind them.
  • Some 18-19 months after the release of the movie “Paris” in France, it is quite strange to read that the film had just opened in USA on Friday 18 September 2009, with limited release no less. Have you seen it? (I did, and I loved it.)
  • Richard Nahem has some recommendations of what to do, when you find yourself with some one hour to spare at a train station in Paris.
  • Do you have a question about the French? Ask a Frenchman! And last week his round of bonus answers laced with wonderful wit and tongue-in-cheek responses made my day.
  • We love Paris and we’re all for showcasing the city to the world. EnjoYourParis aims to do that, but for visitors to the site to not be able to see anything unless a registration is completed is rather cumbersome in our opinion. What do you think?
  • Did you get any free milk on last Tuesday? A rather unusual way to try to win public support by the dairy farmers, but definitely better than just taking to the streets and have a demonstration/strike.
  • It’s Fête des Jardins this weekend (26-27 September 2009) so check this interactive map on this portal page and take advantage of the mild autumnal weather to stroll the parks. Take a tour, enjoy free concerts, get gardening tips, etc.
  • From 22nd September to 22nd November, let’s honour Iranian photographers among many others from all over the world. Photoquai is exhibiting at Quai Branly (free, open daily) and other galleries around the city (check information here, some are free, some are ticketed).
  • Tori Amos and Emilíana Torrini are playing gigs in Paris next week and they shouldn’t be missed. (Links are to FNAC ticketing)
  • Last but not least, do you know this Cool French Dude? The search started 7-8 months ago, to no fruition (for now). Can you help? Please pass on the words!

    […] A couple of weeks ago, we asked for help to locate the Cool French Dude. We’ve just found a site that helps “missed connections” like this – courtesy of Invisible Paris – known as Croisé dans le métro. […]
