France's Biggest Fetish Ball

  Mesdames, Messieurs, it’s time to dust off your vinyl skirts, polish those leather pants, and buff your latex corsets to a fine shine. The 9th annual Nuit Démonia 2008 takes place on December 11 at Le Loco. This “international rendez-vous of latex, leather and vinyl fetishists in Paris” is the biggest fetish event of the year in France, […]

The Day the Music Died

  A long, long time ago the playing of music was based on the revolutions of a disc, but the children of the digital revolution have brought this cycle to an end. The world of music has always been a helter-skelter of cyclical fashions, but the changes today are so radical that we are still […]

Food Wonderland

     Just off the Champs-Élysées there is a special food festival going on with little huts selling gifts and yummy food like crepes, waffles, hot chocolate, hot wine, nougat, chocolates… basically everything you could ever want for the holidays.

Putting the JC in Christmas

Here are Jean Charles de Castelbajac’s recent designs inspired by nearly everyone’s favorite childhood toy products at Lego. The clothes are modeled after Lego playsets and the hats are actual assembled Lego bricks. I really love the house hat! (Now you know what to get me for Christmas. I’m kidding. Sort of.)

The Paris Ferris

Like every year, the ferris wheel is back. It’s located at the bottom of the Champs Elysées (actually in the Tuileries gardens on the Place de la Concorde side) and you can see it from miles away… This year, due to the color feast I was telling you about a few days ago, it also changes […]

Butcher Tops Himself

My local butcher’s demented sense of humor is best at holiday time. Last year he gave his taxidermied boar a jaunty santa cap. This year another unfortunate beast was turned into a display platter.      

Good Luck with That Fiver

On September 1st, a new 5 euro coin came out. There must not be that many in circulation, because I never saw one until today when I received one after a transaction at the post office. As you can see, it’s shiny and silver and looks a little bit like a carnival token. Who knew […]
