LA Sneaker Signing in Paris

From the opposite end of the spectrum (and opposite end of the other coast) was a poster and sneaker signing party with an LA-based skateboarding superstar on Thursday, April 12th at the Sneaker Shop near the Chatelet Metro. In addition to hanging out at the café next door with graphic artist extraordinaire Emmanuel Joubeaud and his two friends I got a glimpse into Parisian life. Friends and friends-of-friends and boyfriends and more friends from other far-flung places (like Australia) as they went from sipping sodas to sipping complimentary champagne at the soiree in the store next door.
