Guided by Cereal

Late last year, the lovely Rosa over at Cereal magazine asked me to write the copy for a Paris city guide for their newly-launched bespoke travel site, Guided. The site is now live and in true Cereal style, is clean, minimal, impeccably curated - every cafe, restaurant, shop or place of interest has gone through a very careful selection process - and features some of the most beautifully-designed eating, drinking, shopping and cultural venues around the globe. The guides, which already include Los Angeles, Hong Kong, London, Austin, Vancouver and Paris, have been photographed and written about by the talented Cereal team, and by a handful of cherry-picked contributors such as Alex Lendrum of Hypebeast, Taylor Bruce of Wildsam Field Guides, photographer Rick Poon and Sheila Lam of Make Directory. (Oh, and little ol' me). The subscription is £20 for the year and is a small price to pay for such an incredible wealth of authoritative, local knowledge. 

And so, if you're looking for a great guide to Paris, head over to Guided now! Here's a little sneak preview of the beautiful images, the first one below is of the Palais de Tokyo, photographed by the uber talented Emilie Guelpa from Griottes Blog.
