A visit chez Mark Eley in Paris

Dear Shaded Viewers,

As you probably know, last November Eley Kishimoto was appointed the new design directors at the French House Cacharel. That means that they spend their time between London where they work on their signature line and Paris where they work on Cacharel. The triangle actually is London, Paris and Tokyo. Today I decided to visit Mark Eley to check out his Paris apartment. Large and lovely and in the most perfect location in Paris not far from the Marche Saint Honore.

While there I told Mark about the Gumball article in Madriz, the luxury Spanish magazine that Mario Canal edits.

I was on the support team for Eley Kishimoto’s Gumball experience and made the road movie.
