Paris, Tuesday December The 9th
I go with a friend to the opening of ” Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs” (Chrismas Trees of Fashion Designers and Designers), in the beautiful Cite de l’Architecture (Musee de l‘Homme). On Marie-Christiane Marek‘s initiative, every years fashion designers and designers give to her association “Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs”, their Chrismas Tree to be sold by auction, for a children charity. A really sober ambiance, a bit too much for me. But at the end of the bids, one of the Chrismas trees has created a big excitement, raising the bidding to more than 30.000 Euros (see picture 3: a kind of “white spiral” – Chrismas tree and sorry I forgot the artist‘s name). I really enjoy the Chrismas tree of Isabel Marant (picture 1) and the Martin Margiela’s one (picture 4). Pictures 2: Marie-Christiane Marek with Marithé Girbaud. And attention to the latecomers (yes tomorrow it‘s already Chrismas!) missing ideas, have a look at my post Chrismas Trees of Fashion Designers, in Paris, with a selection of other great fashion designers and designers Chrismas Trees.
