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! It refers to a vital substance that nourishes, and inspires our soul day by day. A sort of vivid shadow that gives birth twice a year to a print magazine named PARIS, LA.
—Dorothée Perret
