Why Go to Paris When Paris Can Come To You?
Posted on 20 May 2017
Just kidding! It's that time of year again and you know what that means: Le French May and a month of unabashed francophilia. As song writer, Gustave Nadaud laments, "To stay is to exist, to travel is to live." Normally, we'd say go to Pariiiii, but in this case, we couldn't resist having Paris come to us!
Since 1993, Le French May has organised events throughout Asia, providing francophiles with all things French at their doorstep. The silver jubilee this year sees the festival being extended to a two month program with over 120 events, becoming one of Asia’s largest cultural events.
Dress code? Parisienne of course! Cliché, we know, but we cannot resist a Saint James tee or a Maison Kitsune Fox tee paired with our Classic Red Bucket Bag. Perfect for any event, it can carry not only your requisite popcorn and candy film essentials, but also your pair of Repettos when the dancing shoes have to come off!
MISCHA’s must go to events include; the Jazz World Live Series, that focuses on musical improvisation and cross-cultural fusion, “Inventing le Louvre: From Palace to Museum Over 800 Years” at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and, “A R T” a play by Yasmina Reza that's been on Broadway, London's West End and of course the Comédie des Champs-Élysées.
