Le Baron, the much anticipated outpost of the Parisian lounge, failed to open the Chinatown location before fashion week. So instead, Andre Saraiva and Lionel Bensemoun created a pop-up party at Le Bain in collaboration with Kitsuné, the fashion brand and electronic pop label.
Guests got to hear the new compilation Kitsuné PARISIEN, featuring French-electro music and put together by Andre and Gildas Loaec, one of the founders of the Kitsuné brand who not only worked with Daft Punk for 15 years but numerous other bands like Phoenix, Hot Chip, Klaxons, and currently, Two Door Cinema Club.
Kitsuné has been a music label for seven years and produced 4-5 compilations per year. Most of the bands on previous albums have been from the UK or America, despite the brand being based in Paris.
"Finally, we decided to work the local scene," Gildas told GofG. "See what is going on around us. We wanted to promote the French touch. We are known world-wide so it was good to help French artists benefit."
