Pale pink, tangy pink, neon pink: there’s a signature pink for every personality. Now considered a universal colour, it’s featured on a variety of pieces in the Spring/Summer 2023 Men’s collection: “Soft and reassuring, pink traces out the silhouette of an optimistic man. It can be worn from head to toe or more discreetly, paired with ecrus or charcoals,” explains Marion Rougerie, at the head of our style team.

Furniture by Polina Miliou

This young Greek designer and sculptor creates organic furniture out of papier-mâché with a focus on colour, spontaneity and gestural expression. It all began when she decided to make objects for her own apartment. Today, she is as passionate about her work as ever.

The book “All About Love: New Visions” by bell hooks (published in France by Éditions Divergentes)

For bell hooks (a name that she chose and purposely writes in lower-case letters), love is not a feeling, but an act. In this work, she deciphers the patriarchal culture and contrasts it with healthy relationships – all while mixing philosophy and psychology.

The Meshuga restaurant in Paris

A modern deli, exactly what was missing on the Left Bank of Paris. Comfortably nestled just south of the Luxembourg Gardens, this new Parisian spot lives up to its name. In Yiddish, meshuga means “totally crazy”. On the menu: mouth-watering sandwiches (from hot dogs to grilled cheese sandwiches by way of lobster rolls) and deliciously drippy sundaes.

The exhibition “Rose is a rose is a rose” at MAC VAL

Through 14 May, MAC VAL (Contemporary Art Museum of Val-de-Marne) is exhibiting a selection of 23 engravings commissioned by the department for the Roseraie du Val-de-Marne rose garden. For the occasion, the museum’s Salon has been made over like a box of candy. A poetic stroll whose name is a clever nod to Gertrude Stein’s famous quote.
