No word on how to access the private, 350 year old Château Rauzan-Ségla, but they did just have Karl Lagerfeld draw the label of their 2009 vintage.

I just returned from Paris, where I saw a surprising amount of graffiti and street art, especially by French artists such as Space Invader, Horfe and members of the UV TPK crew. I wasn’t able to track down any of Andre’s “Love, Graffiti” series, so this video of his Melrose & Martel piece will have to do.
A beautiful short doc by Paul Trillo about “a street performer who travels through the south of France with his cats.”
Alix McAlpine sends pictures over from the City of Lights.
These sculptures are my favorite, the stair paintings are on point too.
Andres Serrano’s Piss Christ was destroyed by Christian protestors this past Sunday.
“…on Palm Sunday morning, four people in sunglasses aged between 18 and 25 entered the exhibition just after it opened at 11am. One took a hammer out of his sock and threatened the guards with it. A guard grabbed another man around the waist but within seconds the group managed to take a hammer to the plexiglass screen and slash the photograph with another sharp object, thought to be a screwdriver or ice-pick. They also smashed another work, which showed the hands of a meditating nun.”
Megève is the first destination in a series of travel prints being created by Heads of State for the french luxury travel newsletter La Belle France. Available in a signed and numbered edition of 500, and measuring 18″ x 24″, the $45 price tag makes it an easy decision if you’re looking for the beauty of France on your wall.
