Andy Warhol comes to Paris



Andy Warhol comes to Paris in a major exhibition of his trademark society portraits but a famous image of Yves Saint Laurent will be missing after a dispute over whether the late couturier was an artist or a mere designer.



"Warhol's Wide World," which opens this week, presents some 140 of the 1,000 or so portraits of actors, stars and assorted jet set personalities turned out by the "Pope of Pop" from the 1960s until his death in 1987.

The exhibition opens in the Grand Palais on March 18 and runs until July 13.

JAMES PERSE Los Angeles

Good taste,good vibe, wth this kind of gene we must follow this guy.

James Perse was born in Los Angeles, California in 1972. James's childhood was split between the beach, the hockey rink and the floor of his father's innovative Los Angeles boutique, Maxfield. Early on, James was more interested in sports, but with Maxfield at the forefront of putting Los Angeles on the fashion map, James received an incidental education on cutting edge fashion from Europe and Asia, on modern architecture and furniture design, on the elegant and the clean-line.



His passion for minimalist architecture influenced by warm west-coast indoor outdoor living and the casual clothing that's inspired by it, ultimately resulted in James' personal design philosophy and aesthetic - low maintenance high fashion - emphasizing elegance and comfort, and pairing sophistication with simplicity. James has applied this visionary approach in every step of defining and developing the brand.
