Made in Paris Interview with Thomas Lafont
How do you define Paris?
"For me, Paris is the Seine. It’s my landmark. The Seine brings meaning to Parisian wanderings. I love its movement, its changing colors and rhythms. Paris is a city filled with stories. The stories of Parisians are closely tied to the city. Paris is alive! The city pulses with the lives of all who inhabit it, from anonymous individuals to public personalities, from those who live here to those who are only passing through. The capital cobblestones are the silent guardians of Parisian secrets! "
What do you like best in Paris?
The streets! I like going for a walk early in the morning to watch the city wake up. The best season to do this is early summer, in June. Seeing Paris empty makes you feel like the city belongs to you. It’s a magical feeling. I’m especially drawn to its little streets, more than the prominent Parisian thoroughfares. Streets like Rue des Petits-Champs and Rue de Turenne have the same environment as the large adjoining avenues but are more private with a human scale.
What color describres Paris?
It’s a collection of colors: green for the trees along the boulevards, gray for the cobblestones, and blue for the sky. The color of Paris also comes from Parisians themselves: their outfits and diversity.
