Paris Fashion Week already has a buzz and turns one of the world's best cities into even more a hotspot. We were excited to be in Paris this past weekend for a special showcase and worldwide launch party for the Takashi Murakami x Vans Vault collection at Galerie Perrotin's Hotel du Grand Veneur space in the Le Marais neighborhood.
