VIP opening at BHV Homme
La journée de l'Homme dans le Marais !
While the world was celebrating WOMEN (La Journée de la Femme: The Day of the Woman), the Bazar de l'Hotel de Ville (BHV) and Le Marais were celebrating MEN. Even Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoë stopped what he was doing Wednesday to inaugurate the new BHV Homme department store (behind the main store on rue de la Verrerie) during what was a raucous evening popping champagne corks and watching underwear-clad buff bodies gyrate to popular music.
A Nous Paris and BHV Hommes co-published "Urban Repérages," an advertorial magazine designed to get you in the mood by printing the naked back side of a pretty hot guy juxtaposed next to the front side of his clothed self (evidently by the BHV, of course). Turn the page and you get a glimpse of his naked front side, but unfortunately, leaving too much to our imagination.
Of course, it's Le Marais and right in the heart of "Boys Town," so no wonder it will be such a huge success. Au Printemps management must be tearing their hair out contemplating how to counteract such accomplishment, since the BHV is one of the Galeries Lafayette group of retail stores (which includes Monoprix, too). Take note -- the heavy male presence beats the "sous sol" of the main store, known for being a "meet market" and if your "gay-dar" is in tune, you'll be able to spot who among them might be the best candidate for your next love affair.
