As if we didn’t already have 70 million different reasons to visit The City of Light, we now have a few more: this month, Paris will be home to several exciting beauty pop-ups. First, there’s the new Nike pop-up barbershop where you can score a haircut in the image of your favorite soccer player—for free! There’s also the Courréges pop-up where you can get a speedy chignon from stylist Christophe Nicolas-Biot. And last, but certainly not least, this past weekend Shiseido exhibited 140 years of graphics and designs from its history at the Palais de Tokyo. Someone get us a on flight, s'il vous plait!
According to Women’s Wear Daily, the Shiseido exhibit, called Strokes of Genius, or “Un Trait Plus Loin,” included never-before-seen designs and imagery like “brushstroke compositions to avant-garde creations by artist Ayao Yamana to Art Nouveau” as well as an 100th anniversary bottle of the brand’s signature Eudermine skincare line, designed by french perfumer Serge Lutens.
Since we can’t make it to the exhibit anymore, once we grab a flight over, we’ll just have to make do with a chignon from Biot, a croissant, and a café au lait somewhere on the Left Bank.
