About this blog

PARIS, LA blog is about the magic accidents of life. It’s about artists, writers, photographers, musicians and designers that cross our mind, and our heart for a day, a season, a life!

PORTRAIT: ALICE KÖNITZ

Alice Könitz is a Los Angeles institution. Or rather, she’s the founder of a Los Angeles institution.

Alice Könitz is a rebel. Born in Essen, Germany, Könitz moved […]
