“Humphrey to Lauren: We’ll always have Paris. Me to Humphrey: Wrong, Humph.
You’ll never really have Paris, Humph. Paris is too potent for that.”
I love this excerpt from an article by Jon Henley (French correspondent for The Guardian, London) in the 2006 Hermes catalog. Yes, I saved it that long…it’s a bit lengthy to share here and I cannot find it online anywhere unfortunately. He writes of the idea of Paris…of the mind, of memory. It was thought provoking for me, and I agree that Paris is an IDEA. Paris is not to be HAD. Do you agree with this, and what are you thoughts?
