There is no pleasure without DOULEUR: French for pain.
“Pain and pleasure. …… I think it is subtly strange, and uncomfortable, and disturbing …… and yet there is a softness, and a sweetness that gradually shines through, that cannot immediately be seen through the piercing beginning. This has been a love filled, explosively creative project, and I am so excited for people to experience DOULEUR.” Freddie Albrighton.

Hello Fellow Fumies,
At APJ we have a Saturday Question. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it’s a fun event each week. Taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.
The idea is you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back regularly and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them. The aim is to generate real conversation and connection even though we are scattered around the globe.

Hey there APJ,
I love to watch craftsmen. The way they make the impossible for me seem so easy and commonplace. How they are so involved in the creation of their product and the rendering of their craft that there is a kind of graceful flow to every movement. Of course, at CHANEL they employ artisans of the highest calibre and in this 2.2min film it shows. Gorgeous McGorgeous!!
