I’m sure anyone who’s been following me knows how much I’m into good old print media and hunting rare pieces of fashion magazines. I might have mentioned this before but my go-to place for second-hand magazines and fashion- and art books is definitely Comptoir de l’Image in Le Marais. The grumpy (but very lovely) old french man owning the store has been collecting the pieces for over 40 years and knows quite impressive people within the industry. He’s not very eager to share his stories and might be even a bit offended if you decide to buy one of his treasures, but from time to time he gets in the mood to share his incredible memories.

Le Cube by Scott Oster

One of the best shopping destinations in Paris is definitely Le Bon Marché. It is the first department store in the world, and the art deco -architecture is just fascinating. As it is located on the left bank, quite far from any tourist destinations, it is often very calm with only local Parisians strolling around. I personally love all the art and design furniture here and there in the department store, and also currently there is a gorgeous art installation, Le Cube, imagined by Scott Oster, as a part of an ongoing campaign.
