Le Bon Marché is seeing double
“Twice as Nice!” To celebrate and explore the notion of duos, the Bon Marché department store chose a title that neatly sums up the power of tandems: the associations of products (mini/maxi, parent/infant), workshops (design, music), unusual collaborations. Pairs are in the spotlight! Women’s fashion, menswear, interiors; no department was overlooked, down to the “double room”, a space designed with women in mind by special guest Morgane Sézalory, founder of the Sézane brand, and for the men’s side, by Octobre Editions. Because there’s strength in unity.

His entire creative process in fact. Because, as the man with the red sole so eloquently resumes, “to exhibit is to appear naked. An exhibition is where you exhibit yourself.”
