WATCH: Magic Slippers
To memorialize the new colorways of its Le Moc loafer, J.M.Weston has made a short film featuring actor Omar Sy (“The Intouchables,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past”). In “Le Beau Dormant,” a sort of Sleeping Beauty-meets-Cinderella tale, Sy plays a somnolent Prince Charming … and only one thing will wake him. The film premiered this week at J.M.Weston’s pop-up in a former cinema on the famed Champs-Elysées. (jmweston.fr)

SHOP: En Pointe

The boutique also features a customization bar, Atelier Repetto, where you can personalize your pumps by choosing the material and having your initials stamped on it.

GO: Musée Rodin
Since Christian Dior staged both its spring haute couture show and fall ’17 runway at the Musée Rodin — not to mention also hosting a spectacular masked ball there during Couture Week in January —  the Parisian landmark has become a real fashion hotspot. Set in beautiful parklands, the museum is a prime backdrop for gorgeous Instagrams, while the café is one of the best-kept secrets on the Left Bank. (musee-rodin.fr)
