Take a deep breath of relief PBers. NO desserts in this post. Richard/I Prefer Paris kindly invited me to the opening of TYPORAMA - Philippe Apeloig at Des Arts Decoratifs. 41 rue de Rivoli
Des Arts Decoratifs is my all-time favorite Paris musee. I would never say no to any exhibition there.
Plus they have one of the best gift shops in town full if toys! Anyway Philippe Apeloig has worked with all of Paris' top musee and everybody else whose anybody.
Remember I took you behind the scenes at SAUT HERMES at the Grand Palais? Apeloig did the smashing graphics.
He not only worked with YSL in his heyday...
But did all the graphics for the YSL retrospective at the Petit Palace a few years back.
If you've been to le Louvre you already know Apeloig's work.
Walls of sketches and preparatory drawings show you how Apeloig dreams up concepts.
He's designed endless type faces, some made up of just punctuation marks.
They gave us gorgeous posters in black and white natch. There was a mad scramble...
What to wear to TYPORAMA. Black of course + a graphic hqndbag to liven things up.
You can't go wrong with Marimekko ever in the design world.
A petite bouchée of color here
Apeloig was getting congratulatory bisous right and left.
We left to go off for our 'dinapoire' at Les Climats. That's what you call an apero mini-tasting btw. We passed a little hole-in-the-wall building that Apeloig would have loved to go to town with don't you think?
