Cat eyes peer out from a metro collage, Clément – bartend at Palais de Tokyo – serves up the classiest of cocktails and champagne, and Parc de Belleville is dotted with picnics. The one I share with Berlin-based artist Scott Elliott and fashionable friend Stephanie Eisenkolb is a classic – baguettes, fromage, champagne, et fraises. Sunset at Jardin des Tuileries.

Beers at a seedy bar lead to Paris-worthy drama, bouncers tear-gas the public at metro Blanche, and an Elton John lookalike performs at 0FR Systems. Brazilian gallerist Ricardo Fernandez is ever ecstatic about his business, I reminisce over a bottle of red with Colombian architect Alejandro Bernal, and green-eyed Kersti Pohlak tips back her glass of rosé with Lina Bou – Swedish editor of the food and health blog MyTasteofHealth.

Just returned from Paris, here’s a collection of beautiful faces, patterns, cityscapes, and moments of the past week.
