The thousand and one lives….

Curious about everything, this former musician and photographer from Lebanon has art directed for Chloe fragrances, Ines de la Fressange, Costes and Colette. It's during one of his road trips with his family that he imagined the creativeproject Lola James Harper.   A way to bring together the fields of his life: scents, music and photography.  He never leaves without his camera and he is always printing and framing pictures of his travels, often roads and landscapes. "I love poetry.  Pictures are just hints to dream and never to inform”, he said.   Launched at Colette, it was then Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche that offered him a space in 2014.  Lola James Harper creates spaces with friends Kann Design and vintage dealer, Pascale Sgarzi .  On the road, Rami Mekdachi meets singers with whom he composed and recorded through the years an album, that will be released in 2019, together with a movie that tells a story of those encounters . A joyful project that appealed to AccorHotels that will turn it into a hotel concept.   Music, screening rooms, music studio, a tasting of rareteas and coffees, so we can experience the Lola James Harper way of life from morning to night.  One to watch!

Mille et une vies

Curieux de tout, cet ancien journaliste musical né au Liban pratique la direction artistique pour les parfums Chloé, Inès de la Fressange, Costes ou Colette. C’est durant un de ses road-trips avce sa famille qu’il entrevoit le projet creatif Lola James Harper.  Un condensé des plaisirs de sa vie: les senteurs, la musique, le jeu, la photo.  Lui qui ne se sépare jamais de son appareil imprime et encadre des clichés de ses voyages, souvent des routes et des paysages.  “Je cultive le mystère. Ce sont des éléments non pas pour informer” raconte-t-il.  D’abord exposé chez Colette, c’est ensuite Le Bon Marché qui lui offre un espace dès 2014.  Lola James Harper prend vie et étoffe son univers grâce au mobilier Kann Design et a la chineuse Pascale Sgarzi.  Sure la route, Rami Mekdachi croise des chanteuses, ni une ni deux, il développe un album, qui sortira en 2019, et tire un film de ces recontres.  Un concept joyeux qui a de l’avenir puisque le groupe AccorHotels va le transformer en concept hôtelier.  Musique, salle de projection, studio musical, dégustation de thés et de cafes, il sera possible de vivre l’expérience Lola James Harper du matin au soir.  A suivre donc!
