The Carnaval Is Coming To Town


Native Parisians have had their hands (and streets) full this week during the Paris collections, when a tide of editors, stylists, celebrities, and assorted hangers-on flooded into town for the shows. The season wraps up today, and when the pros head home, the Parisians will have a reward to look forward to: the epic, 15th anniversary Carnaval that Colette is setting up in the Tuileries, the first branded, public event ever held in the gardens. Barring a private party on Saturday night, the full slate of booths, games, and activities is open to one and all. The participants include:

—A.P.C., which will shoot you into its new ad campaign
—Maison Michel, which is bringing a photo booth, and hats to wear into it
—Olympia Le-Tan, who will take your temperature with her pharmacy-kit purses
—Nike, which is setting up a basketball court for three-on-three games
— Carhartt, which is organizing a rifle-shooting stand
— A Bathing Ape, which is creating a kiddie pool
— Ladurée, which is cooking up a custom candy-floss-flavored macaron for the occasion
— Darcel (above), the dour blog icon (and contributor), who is creating custom merchandise for the occasion, and more.
