This month we shine a little, um, light on the City of Lights, with special features on all our favorite Parisian musicians, labels, clubs, fashion mavens, and haunts. Chloé, Chateau Flight, Busy P, Point Ephemere, Teenage Bad Girl, Ekler‘o’shock, Kitsuné, Poni Hoax, Institubes, Turzi, Noze, Hugabass, Kourtrajmé, the Colette shop, and more all make the cut as we go underground with graff writer Psyckoze, into the studio with Para One and designer Genevieve Gauckler, and through the city with Fafi, Teki Latex, and Blek Le Rat. We even check in with our North American brethren living in Paris, peep the suburbs’ hip-hop scenes, bring you the lowdown on French Touch, and get style tips from our favorite French designers and shop owners. All this, plus our special City Guide to the best clubs, restaurants, galleries, and more. To tie it all up, our friend Buck 65 sends a love letter to his former home. Paris, je t’aime!
