On October 1st, XXXX Magazine teamed up with Karim Amatullah and Dimitri Hyacinthe of Made in NYC to celebrate Paris Fashion Week with a screening of XXXX Magazine fashion films and party at La Villa in Paris. Managed by Cyril Peret, the venue on Avenue Friedland in the 8th arrondisement recently relaunched itself as a restaurant / nightclub with some of the top DJ’s in Paris. The evening started out with a dinner and video installation/screening featuring many of the movies for the forthcoming Voyage Issue.
The Voyage issue features films from a wide array of international contributors. Coming from locations as varied as Beunos Aires, Paris, London, Greece, New York, Canada, Greece, Sweden, and Los Angeles, each have their own take on what the theme “voyage” means to them. Directors and artists in the issue include Andrea Tese, Bell Soto, Brian Gonzalez, Christian W
itkin, Daniel Arango, Delaney Bishop, Diana Le Quesne, Diego Corredor, Dominique Polambo, Indira Cesarine, Iris Brosch, Jordan Doner, Kaelen Ohm, Michael Daks, Patricio Guillamon, Paul Windridge, Peter Philip Luckner, Sean Capone, Sophia Deininger, Elkelv & Theodorakou and Zaiba Jabbar.
At midnight the DJ’s turned up the volume and the party kicked off Parisian style with guests dancing under the ceiling projected video installation and champagne flowing. October 1st is the celebrated “Nuit Blanche” in Paris, a special night once a year in which many Parisian stores and venues stay open all night long, and the party kept going late into the night. Definitely an event and evening to remember!
