The weekend of the Super Marchés

Thursday, December 13, 2012

You know Christmas is around the corner when there is so much to do and see it makes your head spin. This coming weekend is no exception.
So. Down that Lomi latte, ask for your pain au chocolat to go and pick up a whole carnet... it's going to be one busy weekend!

This Saturday 30+ créateurs will converge at the amazing venue La Cartonnerie for an all day winter wonderland. There will be a brunch, runway show, concerts, and make-up artists and manicurists on hand to prepare punters for a photobooth installation. Not to mention stalls of eclectic jewellery, fashion and  homeware pieces, just in time to wrap something truly original to sneak under the tree.

Those cool cats at Fiftys Sound regularly hold swingin' concerts, brocantes and vide-greniers throughout the year, and, in the spirit of Christmas, have organised a two-day long homage to all things vintage and retro in heart of artsy, alternative Ménilmontant. With a variety of stands covering the years from 1900 - 1980, plus a re-looking (makeover) station to bring out your best Betty, this market will have you rockin' around the Christmas tree till the 25th.

Wanderlust, Seine-side mecca of all things hip and happening, have invited the best from all over Paris to help them celebrate Christmas the only way they know how, with cool festive flair.

Wanderlust will also be unveiling  their curated exhibition 'Team Christmas Tree' with invited creatives and stylists from all over the city each getting their own tree to decorate.  From 19h on Saturday online magazine Brain steps in to host Super Bingo de Noël with prizes for all.

The painstakingly-cool Nadège Winter celebrates the 10th edition of her mega event BrunchBazar with a special Noël-themed weekend at the Palais de Tokyo. BruchBazar mixes food, fashion, creation, frip shopping, performances and chillout sounds all day via djs set up on their own dedicated dance floor. Kids and ados are welcome 15h-18h, while things get serious 20h-midnight for the oldies. A little bit of dancing, a little bit of knitting, a little bit of drinking, a little bit of shopping - sounds like the perfect way to wrap up a super weekend.
