Here is a photo taken yesterday, as we were closing the Open Studio! It rained like crazy all say but it didn’t stop the Studio from being packed from 10am to 8pm (this might explain the fog on the windows), with a crazy moment in the afternoon when there was a line around the block […]

But the other day, at the Mariage Frères store of the Paris airport […]
