Man About Town

    Photography by David Roemer; Styling by Christopher Campbell; Photographed at Shangri-La Hotel, Paris

    At the turn of the 20th century, Paris was the epicenter of a new modernism that shook up everything from art and architecture to literature and fashion, and made the city home to two of the period’s most stylish creations: the Art Deco movement and the bon vivant. That dashing figure rules the avenues again this fall, in powerful silhouettes and grand flourishes expressed in luxurious brocades, fur, crocodile, and more.
