DPEC & BELEEF HET VERLEDEN present

A few days like no othersIN PARIS

Friday12 th Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th of FEBRUARY 2016.

 

 

PARIS, LA COUPOLE,

& ART DECO HOUSE.

A few days like no others - Parijs 05

 

We are glad to organize a weekend  for you in Paris to experience the spirit of ART DECO and LES ANNEES FOLLES.

€100,-/person for 2 nights in the villa, incl. Breakfast, based on 10 pers. booking.

The rest is free or optional.
We have found a smashing ‘maison d’architecte’ which produces the atmosphere of pure lines and seemingly simple volumes refering to De Stijl, for example. Althought not from the period, the place provides up to date comfort so that you are sure to have a good bed and relaxing time.

This house will accomodate 10 guests, so be quick to book!

Price does not include your travel to Paris, but we can help a kind driver finding passengers and sharing costs.

In the meantime, do have a look at Les Paris Follies de la Coupole’s page on Facebook. That should convince you.

 

 

Programme

Flexibility is a key word so that everybody is having a good time.

The highlight of the week-end is the Party in LA COUPOLE on saturday night, where it is expected to wear your

nice 1920s-1930s costume (theme of DANDYS & SEDUCTEURS, by the way…).

For the other events and the villa you may wear what suits you best.

We do encourage for a nice annees folles look during daytime though.

LA COUPOLE

A true Art Deco masterpiece, La Coupole is the most famous Parisian brasserie in the world. Today it is the quintessential symbol of Montparnasse’s history, as well as a key component of the art of living and socialising in Paris, particularly in the 14th arrondissement.

After a drink at the Bar of the Brasserie, we will join the Follies at the Dancing, down the stairs, for a crazy night.  It means dressing in style, a live band, plenty of dancing enthusiasts and some pleasing to the eye entertainment. NOT TO BE MISSED, as it may well be the last edition for a while…

DINER FACING EIFFEL TOWER

What about a fine 3 course meal, dressed in style for the evening, in a typical Art Deco room, facing the Eiffel Tower? We have tried just that last December and thought more people should discover the place.

 

LA MODE RETROUVEE

PALAIS GALLIERA: * Fashion Regained. The treasured dresses of Élisabeth, Countess Greffulhe.

This exhibition focusing on the wardrobe of Countess Greffulhe, whose beauty and elegance was one of the main inspirations for Marcel Proust and the fashion designers of her time.

On display at the Palais Galliera there are some fifty models bearing the labels of grands couturiers such as Worth, Fortuny, Babani, and Lanvin. There are coats, indoor clothes, day dresses, evening dresses, and also accessories, portraits, photographs and films. Every item is an invitation to go ‘in search of lost fashion’ and to become acquainted with this great figure of Paris Society, whose image was inescapably bound up with her wardrobe.

The exhibition covers Belle Epoque fashion…but very much the 1920’s and 1930’s as well…

Conférence “La comtesse Greffulhe, ou l’élégance au service de la musique”
