Exhibition : Parisian in summer

Until next October 6th, the City of Fashion and Design is hosting photography exhibition “Parisian in summer”. The thread of this event is about the city’s face at this time, what is it?  Photographs taken between 1880 and 1960 by Roger-Viollet agency gives to the capital a face worthy of a seaside resort, where locals meet vacationers since first sun rays. During one summer, the agitation seems far, leaving room for swimming and games, most of the time around the Seine. Before autumn points the tip of his nose, we run to discover this beautiful tribute paid to last sun rays subliming Paris.
