Place Vendôme and highly coveted artists.
The Hermès Summer Collection sale will bring together the timeless Birkin, Kelly and Constance in a beautiful range of colours. A few pieces from the Louis Vuitton x Supreme capsule collection will complete the summer session.
Meanwhile, Artcurial has partnered with the Rock to offer a range of collector cars during the week of prestige sales, with almost 80 exceptional cars selected by Artcurial Motorcars on show at the Prince’s Automobile Museum.

France has said that night clubs will be able to reopen in July, leaving club owners delighted but also concerned about what kind of rules will need to be implemented.
The YCM will host June's Festival of the Sea in honour of the patron saint of fishermen, Saint Peter, however the event will be scaled back this year due to health restrictions.
A new public use facility called A Fabrica has been inaugurated in the heart of Princess Antoinette Park, a space made possible by the generosity of two local donors.
Masks will no longer be mandatory in Monaco from Saturday, with the exception of a few tourist hotspots like Casino Square.
Monaco Explorations and the Principality's initiatives for the oceans have been in the spotlight at the UN. Isabelle Rosabrunetto, Director General of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, accompanied by Marie-Catherine Caruso-Ravera, Director of Diplomatic and Consular Relations, visited the United States, from December 4 to 8, to make working visits to the various Monaco Diplomatic and Consular Missions.
In New York, she delivered an important speech to the UN General Assembly during the debate on oceans and the law of the sea.
Her address was an opportunity to recall Monaco's priorities, such as the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14, ocean acidification, marine protected areas, the fight against marine pollution as well as the Principality’s support for hydrography and marine cartography.
The importance of marine science and scientific collaboration was also at the heart of the Director General's speech, citing as examples the Yersin’s ports of call in Madeira, Cape Verde and Martinique, in accordance with the vision of SAS the Sovereign Prince to "reconcile humanity and the sea."
The Principality also supports the initiative of the UNESCO Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission to proclaim a Decade of Ocean Sciences from 2021 to 2030. Two draft resolutions of the General Assembly on oceans and the law of the sea in general and on the sustainability of fisheries were adopted at the end of the debate.
By the end of the year, the General Assembly is expected to adopt a third resolution to convene an Intergovernmental Conference to develop a new International Instrument for the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Marine Biodiversity.
