The Paris Issue
Following a stopover in Istanbul in its last issue, Holiday magazine sets sail for its hometown: Paris. Arthur Dreyfus takes us on a journey through the heart of the city and its fashion world, going behind the scenes at Chanel and Courrèges for an entertaining, in-depth look at the two esteemed houses. Meanwhile, Christopher Niquet meets Anthony Vaccarello, Julien Dossena, Isabel Marant, Victoire de Castellane and Nicolas Gabard for a series of one-on-one interviews, while Eva Ionesco, Christophe Lemaire, Sarah-Linh Tran and Bambi answer quintessentially Parisian questionnaires.
Our journalists also met with the artist André Saraiva, the chef Iñaki Aizpitarte and the actor Tahar Rahim; held conversations with waiters in some of the French capital’s most iconic cafés; and profiled representatives of various occupations, including the Opéra de Paris’s étoile (principal) dancer Guillaume Diop—in short, a good many of the important people in Paris today.
Behind the camera in this issue are photographers Olivier Kervern, Alessandro Furchino Capria, Jonathan Frantini, Chris Rhodes, Federico Torra, Deo Suveera and Pamela Dimitrov, who cast their unique gaze on Paris to deliver personal visions of the streets and interiors of a city whose beauty is both contemporary and eternal, a point made clear by Robin Galiegue, who shot all the portraits in this issue and teamed up with Marie-Amélie Sauvé to produce a series offering proof that the silhouettes of the City of Light also shine in black—and for all time.
