Bearded hipsters meet fashion’s finest at a strange new food and culture festival in Paris.
Paris by Mouth reports that a new special festival at high-end department store Le Bon Marché is celebrating all of the “best” of the New York borough as curated by their merchandisers in a bizarre Brooklyn meets Paris styling.
While seemingly odd from my middle American perspective, the festival is probably in line with the occasional cultural celebrations that pop up at my local specialty grocery (Brazilian food for a month? Let’s go….)
The last time I wanted to see Brooklyn hipsters in Paris, I needed to venture no further than Frenchie To Go – the joint was teaming with them. (And who would blame them… that reuben! those fries!)
I doubt I’ll make it to Paris before the collaboration ends but I’d be unlikely to purchase American goods to carry home anyhow. Such a pop up wouldn’t be aimed to me in any case!
What do you think about these cultural mash-ups and what collaborations would you like to see?
