  8. 8. 8 WHERE PARIS I FEBRUARY 2014 P aris has always been regarded as the most romantic destination in the world with its gorgeous architecture, romantic music and its seductive French language. It has long been used as a backdrop in many romantic movies, real life encounters and the destination to countless proposals. This month we show you what makes the French capital the Romantic Capital, with its iconic monuments and its avant-garde rendezvous addresses for lovers. You cannot visit Paris in February, the most romantic month of the year and not see the Eiffel Tower. One of the most famous monuments in the world that always brings images of love and romance to the minds of lovers is best seen at sunset from Place de la Concorde. It is equally breathtaking seen from Place du Trocadéro in the evening when it sparkles like a jewel every hour on the hour when hundreds of light bulbs light it up from top to bottom. Paris is also known for its many bridges, but none are more romantic than Pont Marie and Pont des Arts. When passing beneath Pont Marie on a boat, you should close your eyes, make a wish and kiss the person next to you. Could there be a more romantic journey on the Seine? The Pont des Arts, a pedestrian bridge, has unofficially become the Lovers’ Bridge, and it is where many couples declare their love by engraving or writing their names on a padlock and locking it to the bridge’s railings. While technically French chocolate is not a monument per se it definitely is something to be experienced while visiting the French capital and with chocolate being a popular gift between couples, this is the perfect time to discover Alain Ducasse’s artisanal chocolate. He is the master chef, known the world-over for his talent in the kitchen, winning him 3-Michelin star restaurants around the world, and now Ducasse is taking his savoir-faire to the humble cocoa bean and creating delicious chocolate. In his atelier you There is no better place in the world to celebrate Valentine’s Day, or any romantic occasion, than in the City of Love.

While his bonbons, including traditional pralines and a caramel-flavoured ganache, are a sweet way to say “I Love You”. Paris has been long regarded as a cultural hub with talented artists welcomed to showcase their avant-garde works to the awaiting public. And now you can be one of the first to experience a unique installation by award-winning artist, Mathias Kiss. Behind the popular bar La Perle, waits the Kiss Room. The ephemeral hotel room, covered entirely in mirrors is the work of Mathias, who over the past few years has become quite intrigued by mirrors and reflections. Covered with 1000 mirrors, the Kiss Room is an art installation operating as a one-room hotel that you can reserve online only and makes quite the V-Day gift. It is arguably the most classic of dates you can organise but the Royal Monceau has given the old dinner and a movie clichéd date quite the chic twist. Every Sunday at 6.30pm you can step into the hotel’s VIP theatre where you will be served a glass of champagne and Pierre Hermé’s gourmet caramel popcorn to enjoy as you watch a special screening of an old Hollywood classic. West Side Story, the romantic Pretty Woman, Titanic and Four Weddings and a Funeral are all scheduled to screen this month as part of the Sunday Night Film Club, but make sure you reserve as early as possible as the theatre only seats 99.

  10. 10. [ F E B R U A R Y i n P ar i s ] Some are winding labyrinths while others are reminiscent of perfectly straight streets, but they are all invitations to a particularly Parisian promenade. BY PATRICIA VALICENTI 10  WHERE Paris I FEBRUARY 2014 B e they akin to winding labyrinths, perfectly straight streets or hidden short cuts, they are all invitations to a particularly Parisian promenade. The city’s covered passageways house both high and low end boutiques, the offbeat, old bookshops, art galleries, stamp shops, restaurants and even a hotel. Strollers and people with a purpose snake their way through these ways, there are about 20 still in existence. Alternatively named “passage” or “galerie”, they are “covered” with glass roofs, which prompt the light to vary depending upon the weather, time of day and time of year. Each has its own personality and ambiance linked to its history or those who frequent it. The passages of Paris were essentially constructed during two relatively brief time periods, the first from 1823 to 1828 and a second phase from 1839 to 1847. They reached their peak during the Restoration (1814-1830) offering a haven for pedestrians from the traffic, bad weather and the streets themselves, which at the time lacked sidewalks and sewers and overflowed with carriages and mud when it rained. They have over the decades fallen in and out of fashion but are always worthy of a visit. The covered passageways of Paris remain architectural treasures of glass, steel and fabulous décor. They are seemingly worlds that have been hermetically sealed off from the capital, offering a bewitching alternative in terms of goods, fare and diversion. This other worldliness is particularly prominent in and around the Grands Boulevards where the passageways alternatively house a Hall of Mirrors, a two-star restaurant, a cane shop, a tea salon serving homemade cakes and lemonade and even a cosy hotel where the rooms still have big heavy keys. Among the great passageways of the “Boulevards” are the Panoramas and Jouffroy. Here in the 19th century the tout Paris would THE Passageways of paris exhibit their wealth as bankers, writers, artists and theatre people frequented these hidden networks. The Passage des Panoramas, which dates back to 1799, built outside of the peak in passageway construction, today is a philatelist’s paradise and one of the oldest of the city’s passageways. Welcoming pedestrians for over two centuries now, it snakes you under cover from the Boulevard Montmartre to the rue Saint-Marc and along the way you’ll cross over the Galerie des Variétés, in which you will find the theatre of the same name, the Galeries Montmartre, Feydeau and Saint-Marc. In the Panoramas at number 53 is also where you will find the appropriately named restaurant Passage 53. The Michelin starred restaurant serves superb French cuisine highlighting excellent products and produce. For a more modest meal or snack, you will find the La Crêperie at number 62. And don’t miss the old and attractive stamp shops that pepper the passageway with their presence while for the inveterate collector of whatever, there is a unique shop, Au Matériel de Collections at number 54, carrying books, folders and cases and to organise your favourite collection. Meanwhile, across the Boulevard, one can journey into the Passage Jouffroy where the spectacular wax museum, the Musée Grévin, replete with its Hall of Mirrors and French and international personalities awaits the visitor. It remains the leading attraction of the passageway still today as it was yesterday when Passage Jouffroy PassagedesPanoramasandPassageJouffroyphotos©ParisTouristOffice-MarcBertrand;PassageJouffroy(bottomphoto)©ParisTouristOffice-ThomasSanson WP FEB Passageways FINAL.indd 10 14/01/2014 15:31
  11. 11. it opened in 1882 on a lot adjacent to the current location. Jouffroy, built in 1847, is one of the city’s younger passageways and is named for its architect M. Jouffroy, the son of the Marquis Jouffroy d’Abbans. Heated from the ground, it was a favourite promenade, away from the legendary Parisian dampness. The gallery’s toy, gift and book shops seem to reach out from another time like when the passageway’s underground played host to a ballroom, which then became a puppet theatre and in 1860 the Séraphine, a shadow play puppetry theatre, whose “actors” were 60 centimetres high. Over at number 30 is a cosy tea salon, Le Valentin, serving homemade lemonade, cakes, jams and candies and fabulous photographs can be found at number 45 at Photo Verdeau.

  13. 13. BY SANDRA ISKANDER It was in 1975 that Chantal Thomass introduced her first lingerie line. At a time when lingerie was basic and functional in design, Thomass overlooked the “masculine” perception of lingerie and she played with silk and frills. She “dressed” up the bra and corset and she later dreamt up the lace pantyhose. “I played with what is underneath like what is on top, revealing and veiling with lace and sensual transparencies”, explains the playful designer. And it was in that same year that she launched her very own lingerie label. Shortly after, she opened her first boutique in the heart of Paris, which has since become the famous boudoir ladies visit for sexy lingerie. Today, Chantal Thomass, with her signature black bob and trademark red lipstick, continues to bring sexy to the bedroom, she even recently designed beds for Treca, the bedding company, complete with lace detailing and bed legs shaped like stilettos. Playing with basic black as well as with natural, subdued hues, Thomass’s latest Spring/Summer lingerie line features different collections and themes, offering every lady a kind of sexy that best suits her. The Obsession line features corset detailing with cheeky cut-out designs in black while the Noeuds et Merveilles line features printed bows in leopard print. The Rockin’ Joséphine pieces are a combination of fun and sexy with the Eiffel Tower adorning the sexy slips while the Secret d’Alcôve embodies ultra-feminine delicates with fine lacing making up the 8-piece collection. When she is not designing sexy lingerie and bedding, Chantal Thomass loves to shop, scour antique stores and she enjoys good food.

  14. 14. The thin red line TheThe thin red line 14 WHERE PARIS I FEBRUARY 2014 [ F E B R U A R Y I N P A R I S ] BY SANDRA ISKANDER What originally began as a school project has now become an A-list must-have accessory. RedLine jewellery designer Laetitia Cohen-Skalli first launched the brand as part of her Master’s project where she was to create and market a brand. With a remarkably positive reception to her fictitious collection, Laetitia decided to launch RedLine in the real world. Inspired by the belief that a red string protects and brings luck to its wearers, Laetitia decided to create her jewellery line around the now famous red string, and smartly just added a diamond to bring it to life. Each bracelet’s clasp is also engraved with the letters KA, representing Ancient Egypt’s belief that the letter K brings peacefulness, serenity, calmness and harmony. And so Laetitia’s success came with chic simplicity, adorning wrists with not only a pretty bracelet but also bringing luck to her clients. The RedLine bracelet has now become a cult accessory with people from around the world, including Hollywood celebrities, making appointments at Laetitia’s atelier in the heart of Paris to personalise their red string. With the good luck high-end bracelet’s unique feature being the strength of the string itself, being very resistant and almost unbreakable, a RedLine bracelet makes for a perfect piece of jewellery to wear all the time, making it a piece of yourself. Made by hand in the rue Saint-Honoré atelier, each bracelet is created with care and attention, and can be designed with more than one diamond or even different stones. And now you can even choose different coloured strings to suit your personal style and your mood. Expanding the jewellery line, the talented designer now also offers her clients gold bracelets, rings, a men’s line as well as a sweet collection for children, and always designing around the idea of spirituality and harmony. RedLine (By appointment only) 161 rue Saint-Honoré (1st), 01 44 64 92 24 RedLine jewellery is also available at Printemps and Galeries Lafayette.

The watch harbours a 30-second chronograph system inspired by a Breitling patent dating back to 1926 and based on a central hand sweeping around the dial in half a minute ensuring extremely accurate 1/8th of a second time readings. Another of the watch’s exclusive features is the variable tachometer with a rotating bezel (the rim) that calculates the average speed no matter the time elapsed, the distance covered or the speed attained, compared with standard tachometers that measure only times of less than 60 seconds. The bezel has a knurled motif bringing to mind the famous Bentley radiator grilles. The watch is available in steel or red gold with a choice of a bracelet or a crocodile leather or rubber strap adorned with a central raised motif matching the one on the bezel. – P.V. 10 rue de la Paix (2nd), 01 42 61 18 84 BOUCHERON The first of the great contemporary jewellers to open a boutique on the Place Vendôme, Boucheron has embodied excellence in jewellery, high jewellery and watch making for more than 150 years.

The show, entitled Cartier, Style and History, has been designed as an art history exhibition presenting the jeweller’s creations as works of art in their own right. The exhibition brings together some 600 pieces of jewellery, objects, watches and clocks teamed up with dresses, coats and accessories, furniture, paintings, advertising photographs and fashion magazine spreads, giving visitors an idea of the art and taste of the time. The visitor can look onto an array of objects from ceremonial jewellery to the most personal of items: vanity cases, cigarette cases and wristwatches, with the stars of the show being, among others, the superb diadems and an unprecedented number (18) of the house’s mysterious clocks, each one a masterpiece. – Patricia Valicenti Through Feb 16 Grand Palais, Salon d’Honneur, Square Jean Perrin entrance, 3 ave Général Eisenhower (8th), 01 44 13 17 17 ARTS & ATTRACTIONS WP FEB ARTS FINAL.indd 40 15/01/2014 09:14
  41. 41. www.wheretraveler.com 41 They are sacred and profane works, fantastical, poetic and symbolical, evoking the liturgy and objects of virtue. Ira de Fürstenberg has created a magical world in this show fittingly entitled Unique Objects. She draws inspiration and ideas from ancient objects that she brings back from her far-flung voyages or finds in antique shops. Crucifixes, chalices, bowls and ciboria blending rock crystal, rare marbles encrusted with fine and precious gemstone and decorated with inflorescences taking the shape of tutelary angels, crowns of thorns and interlacing of barbed wire in gold and silver plate are on display. There are also works that represent an exotic bestiary inspired from the nourishing banks of the Nile of Ancient Egypt, the Saharan lands of northwest Africa and also Venetian bas-reliefs influenced by Byzantium.

There are the elegant hounds on coverlets in the woods, a bouquet that beckons and recoils at the same time and the audacity of an uncooked roast chicken. They are all part of the duo’s Résonance series, a perception of the world juxtaposing the relationship between individuals and nature. The volumes, nature, settings and bodies in the works are partially or totally covered in materials evoking scenes that are both troubling and magical with every photograph having been carefully scripted. The Galerie Rauchfeld is also exhibiting works from their Huis-Clos series on the theme of the family, which takes an ironic view of our contemporary society. – P.V.

  44. 44. 44 WHERE PARIS I FEBRUARY 2014 W H E R E PA R I S The lore and history of the horse are on the agenda in Chantilly in the domain’s recently renovated Musée du Cheval (Horse Museum), one of the few museums in the world devoted to the horse. The museum traces the history of the horse since the dawn of time showcasing some 200 objects including paintings, engravings, fabrics, sculptures, audio-visual documents and equestrian equipment. The exhibition, running through the 15 adjoining rooms of an edifice largely built in the middle of the 18th century, covers the evolution of the horse and horse breeds throughout the world, the technical progress in horse equipment and the relationship between the horse and power, war and hunting. A large room is devoted to the horse in art with works by, among others, Dürer, Mantegna, Rubens and Dufy – P.V. Domaine de Chantilly, 03 44 27 31 80 Twenty-five minutes from Paris by train (SNCF) from the Gare du Nord. EVOKING THE EQUINE A community of curious creatures has settled into the Palais de la Découverte as thousands of ants perform various antics for the visitor to behold. Ants appeared on the face of the earth 120 million years ago and now there are billions of them. The exhibition, entitled A Thousand Billion Ants, complete with ant farms, takes a look at the global success of these fascinating insects through their social system and collective behaviour. You can watch them carry leaves and twigs to their nests and as they head down the transparent tubes, the visitor learns that ants carrying something are given right of way over those who are not. There are 12,000 known species on the face of the planet, and the show provides a journey into their world through films, interactive exhibits, scale models, objects and of course the ants themselves, the undisputed stars of the show. – P.V. Through Aug 24 Ave Franklin Roosevelt (8th), 01 56 43 20 21 The enigmatic Lady and the Unicorn, restored, returned home to the Musée du Cluny last December to an entirely revamped exhibition room, which was designed to improve conservation conditions and to enhance appreciation of this outstanding ensemble. The six tapestries of the great masterpiece are regarded as being among the most exceptional artistic achievements of the Medieval era, dating from about 1500. Captivating and shrouded in mystery, they were discovered in 1841 by Prosper Mérimée in the Boussac castle in the French department of the Creuse and acquired by the first director and curator of the Cluny, Edmond Du Sommerard in 1882. The Lady and the Unicorn is a complex and intriguing work not least of all because of the long lasting belief that unicorns possess mystical powers. It is generally agreed upon that the tapestries depict the five senses but debate hovers around the sixth tapestry, Mon seul désir (My Sole Desire). Could it be perhaps the inner sense, the heart? – P.V. 6 place Paul Painlevé (5th), 01 53 73 78 16 ANT ATTITUDE T h e R e t u r n o f t h e L a d y ANTPHOTO©PALAISDELADÉCOUVERTE–CÉSARROBINEAU;TENTUREDELADAMEÀLALICORNE:«MONSEULDÉSIR»CIRCA1500PARIS,MUSÉEDECLUNY-MUSÉENATIONALDUMOYENÂGE©RMN-GRANDPALAIS/MICHELURTADO; CARROUSELHORSESPHOTO©AKTC-FRIEDLI The lore and history of the horse are on the agenda in Chantilly in the domain’s recently renovated Musée du Cheval (Horse Museum), one of the few museums in the world devoted to the horse.
