Home to the Eiffel Tower and said to be the world’s fashion capital, this city is also one of the most expensive ones in the world. And who better than a French to capture the different nuances of this city of dreams. Bettina Rheims, a French photographer, has presented the various aspects of this city in a book titled Rose, C’est Paris.

What is more, the book comes residing in an exquisite retro attaché case. Besides the book, the case houses a rose, a mask, an Eiffel Tower statuette, a booklet, and a DVD.
