We saw her from afar, Laura, with her long legs, her neon shorts and her blonde afro, Angela Davis style.

A fashion designer at Fête Impériale, an eco-responsible brand based in the Marais, she was hurrying to rue Vieille-du-Temple to return to the office after her lunch break.

Dressed all in white, his friend Sara, a philosophy student at the Sorbonne, came as a counterpoint to assert a “normcore” aesthetic.

This style of clothing which highlights normality as opposed to sophistication. The word is a contraction of the English words "normal" and "hard-core".

The best tattoo parlors in Marais

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors.
