On the 26th October I had the pleasure to be invited to a launch cocktail party of a travelling photography exhibit “La Parisienne by Sofitel” at the wonderful St James Sofitel.
Sofitel is a luxury French hotel chain and so I was excited to see how this traveling exhibition tied in with their campaign but boy it just works!
The travelling exhibit of “La Parisienne by Sofitel” started in Paris (of course) and is globe-trotting, bringing its two part exhibition all over for everyone to experience. It consists of a selection of 22 iconic photographs of Parisienne’s from the 1950s to the present day, which include some amazing archived shots of Jane Fonda, and more modern images of Ines de la Fressange – the exhibition presents a unique insight into the lives of the world’s most famous, and celebrated, women. The contemporary part of the exhibition is made of up of 10 brilliant photos which were the pièce de résistance selected from the photography competition for amateur and young professional artists across France, who were asked to scope according to what “La Parisienne” embodies in this day and age.
If you’re staying in London it’s worth noting that the hotel are also offering incredible Paris-inspired style services created alongside Ella Catliff from the blog La Petit Anglaise as well as hair styling crafted by Paul Edmonds!
I loved “La Parisienne by Sofitel” – the experiences being offered sound amazing and the exhibit itself is nothing short of fabulous. The photography is brilliant and takes you quickly away to Paris, it’ll be displayed at Sofitel St James for the coming weeks until Mid-November before it moves on to travel Sofitel across the world. If you work nearby it’s totally possible on a lunch break or a perfect place to visit before dinner in London.
Do let me know what you think if you visit!
