WEEKLY WRAP UP | JULY 21- 25, 2014

This week, I watched the Swedish film We Are The Best! and I remembered one of my favorite films from when I was a kid, Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains. The film is full of awesome teenage punk fashion straight out of the 1980s. I had to post more pictures. We also took a walk […]

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 manages to give birth twice a year to a print magazine named PARIS, LA.

His passion for filmmaking, especially […]

AN AFTERNOON WITH THE COLLECTOR HERMAN DALED IN BRUSSELS

I got the chance to visit his place and discuss his life as a collector, and his relationship with this masterpiece of modernism. In the next issue of Paris-LA, coming in September, you […]
