Surprise, surprise! This astonishingly SCARLET street pole flashing in front of L’Hotel de Ville is a true colour startle in the context of a city like Paris!
Pistachio or hunter green – now this is more Paris…
But royal British red?! Why, that’s something unexpected!
Deep, classy green has always been symbolic for Paris, as it blends in well with public parks, tree-lined avenues and other urban developments.
This daringly red, crown-topped street pole makes for a refreshing British patch over Paris’ greyish autumnal pardessus.
No idea how long it stays there, so enjoy it while it lasts!
