Redeemable For Dreams (But Not, Alas, For Drinks)

-------

André Saraiva is now better known as an international nightlife impresario—the man behind Le Baron, Beatrice Inn, and Le Montana—but at the beginning, he was just a graffiti artist with an alter ego (the winking smiley-face tag Mr. A, who’s since gone on to adorn Belvedere bottles and serve as the logo for Saraiva’s Black Block clothing line) and the balls to tag it on every exposed surface in Paris. The graffiti missions are less frequent than they used to be, but at Colette’s gallery space, a new show of the artist’s drawings should remind you of the bygone days. The drawings of imagined currencies from “Bank André” may not be legal tender—except, maybe, for amour et rêves—but we’re betting his admirers will snap them up all the same.

Through February 27 at Colette, 213 rue Saint-Honoré, Paris, colette.fr.

Kate’s Welcome Gift

How Hollywood is this? We hear that when Kate Moss arrived at the Ritz last night in advance of today’s Chanel show, she was greeted in her room by a framed portrait of herself and Lila Grace. She was spotted at the hotel’s Hemingway Bar and Le Montana last night, but it was picture time again when she emerged from the backstage area at Chanel this morning in the label’s charmeuse pajamas, sharp-shouldered jacket, and black T-shirt. The lady knows how to make an entrance.

When we say that André has the lock on Paris nightlife, we make no exaggeration. Last night I logged in time at three of his clubs: Régine’s, Le Baron, and Le Montana. That last one is his newest edition and last night, André revealed the site’s storied history (Purple magazine’s blowout being the latest notch in its bedpost). Before it was a sixties and seventies hotspot, Le Montana served as a thirties-era communist hangout; and before transforming into its latest bejeweled iteration, it was a loud-and-proud gay club in the eighties. As André scanned the crowd—which included Olympia Scarry, Angela Lindvall, and Milla Jovovich with their adoring male best friends—he smiled. “Some things never change,” he said. “But we could use more communists.”

Paris Highlights: Le Beat Goes On

-------

With just one day of rest between Milan’s Extreme blow-out Monday night and today’s shows in Paris, RTW devotees are gearing up for the Month of Fashion’s final lap. Paris, like its metropolitan counterparts, is scaling back a bit this season (we hear Givenchy’s dark-and-rocking after-party has been canceled, for one), but the French city is still hosting more than its share of feuding fêtes.
