12 Hours in Paris
Last weekend I was given an amazing opportunity to shoot something for Vogue China in Paris (said oh-so-casually but in real time was followed by a shriek and Whatsapp to my mum), which led to me being in one of my favourite cities ever for 12 hours. I can’t show you guys the photos I shot for them yet, but for now here are some iPhone bits and shots from my film camera that I took throughout the day. Every time I leave Paris I get more excited to return, and this being my shortest trip yet was evidently no exception. Special thanks to Ming, Wish and Fed for letting me tag along; and you all who are reading this as I wouldn’t be getting such special opportunities without you.
After an extremely early alarm at 4AM, I managed not to miss my flight and was in Paris just in time for breakfast at Le Royal Monceau, which has a fancy as staircase leading to the bathroom.
My shirt is from APC and is a new favourite. Buy it here.
One of those moments when you are reminded how awkward and untalented you are when you witness the artistry that manifests in the Dior Atelier…but more on that later.
Post-lunch, some showrooms around Rue Saint Honoré involving beautiful but strenuous stair activity.
Stopping by the Sacai showroom and eating too many pastries…still thinking about that cheesecake.
And finally, sneaking off pre-Eurostar to do some very typical but necessary Eiffle Tower gazing. I helped a Korean family take a photo in front of it and the mum was super cute and insisted that she help me as well. Also made sure I stopped by a pharmacy before hopping on the train back to London, to pick up my favourite french beauty products.
Hope you like…can’t wait to show you guys the ones I shot in Dior!
