Paris - St-Germain-des-Prés: Café de Flor
Cafe de Flor, at 172 boulevard St-Germain, dates back to the beginning of the third Republic, sometime around 1887. Its name comes from a small divinity sculpture which stood across the boulevard. At the end of the nineteenth century, charles Mauras, who lived on the second floor, wrote his book, Under the Flore Sign here. Around 1913, Apollinaire and Salmon transformed the first floor into a newspaper office and les soirees de Paris was born. In 1917, Apollinaire introduced poets Philippe Soupault to Andre Breton here, and in turn they to Aragon, laying the foundation for the Dadaist movement. Apollinaire called 172 home and died here in 1918. In the 1930's, Pascal, a waiter-philosopher, better known as Descartes, served Trotsky or Chou En Lai. Yvest Tanguy introduced Leo Mallet to de Flore, and he in utrn wrote La nuit de Saint-Germain-Des-Pres. In 1939, Paul Boubal purchased the Cafe de Flore and through the occupation, French intellectuals Simone De Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre would meet "The Family" and evolve their existentialist philosophies over drinks. Sartre asserted that "during 4 years, the road to the Cafe was for me the Road to Freedom." Simone Signoret wrote in her memoirs, ""I was born in March 1941 at night on a bench of the Cafe de Flore". Following the War, drunk with freedom, existentialism became the fashion and Saint-Germain-des-Pres became a principal meeting place and think tank drawing in the likes of the PCF (French Communist Party), and Boubal's Poully Club of France, which drew its name from the famous white wine served at the cafe. In the 1960's, cinema and fashion seized the cafe and all the best filmmakers, models and designers would frequent the haunt. Today it still attracts its fair share of celebrities and tourists. Robert DeNiro will spend full mornings people watching. Johnny Depp will drop by any time of day. Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson, and Isabella Rosselini will find their way when in time. And Francis Ford Coppola declared that his dream was to live in Saint-Germain-des-Pres so he can eat his breakfast at the Flore each morning.Paris - Avenue Montaigne: Chanel
The House of Chanel, more commonly known as Chanel, is a Parisian fashion house in France founded by Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel. According to Forbes, the privately held House of Chanel is jointly owned by Alain Wertheimer and Gerard Wertheimer who are the grandsons of the early (1924) Chanel partner Pierre Wertheimer. Chanel revolutionized haute couture fashion by completely replacing the traditional corset with the comfort and casual elegance of simple suits and dresses. She introduced to the world her signature cardigan jacket in 1925, introducing a more sultry and seductive definition to “sexy.” She had numerous other major successes that changed the fashion industry including the ever popular "'Chanel suit'", an elegant creation composed of a knee-length skirt and trim, boxy jacket, traditionally made of woven wool with black sewing trim and gold buttons, worn with large costume-pearl necklaces. Elite women of high societies around the world began to flock to the now legendary Rue Cambon boutique to commission couture outfits from her. The House of Chanel became an icon of elegance and from then on, the name “Chanel” became synonymous with elegance, wealth, and elitism, as well as the ultimate sign of French high class, la coquetterie. After the phenominal success of her perfume, No. 5, Coco Chanel's fashions became even more well-known and were purchased by the high flyers of London and Paris society alike. Chanel took to living at the Hotel Ritz Paris, and her suite of residence has become famous and is now named the "Coco Chanel Suite." Chanel is also known for its quilted fabric which also has a "secret" quilting pattern sewn at the back to keep the material strong. This material is used for clothing and accessories alike. The brand is now headed by German-born designer Karl Lagerfeld, who also designs for the House of Fendi, as well as his namesake label.
From Japan to America, the LV sign dominates the fashion scene. And, one man alone designs the Louis Vuitton creations the exceptional Marc Jacobs.See also:
