MESSIKA IS TAKING YOU TO 7ÈME CIEL
In time for summer, Maison Messika is taking over an extraordinary Parisian setting: 7ème Ciel, the heavenly rooftop lounge at Printemps Haussmann, where it will open its first pop-up café. Café Messika promises unforgettable moments over the rooftops of Paris.
Open from May to October 2023, the striking rooftop lounge on the seventh floor marks the unprecedented collaboration between two major Parisian institutions. More than ever, Messika is asserting itself as a decidedly couture jewelry Maison, and its partnership with Printemps, an iconic fashion destination, grew from a clear, natural connection.
A MODERN MEETING OF MINDS
Artistic Director Valérie Messika is reinterpreting Printemps Haussmann’s 7ème Ciel rooftop lounge, creating an elegant, relaxed setting to enjoy breath-taking views over the capital and its iconic Eiffel Tower.
With its exceptional panoramic view, Café Messika is an open-air space, where the beauty of its materials meets clean, sweeping lines. The space is designed in the image of the Maison: shards of gold, contemporary neon lights, fine marble and polished mirrors create a luxurious, modern feel.
AN OUTDOOR CAFE THAT TURNS THE MUNDANE INTO A MOMENT
A new destination where visitors can take to the skies and escape for a cocktail or gourmet treat, Café Messika is already establishing itself as an unmissable spot. From the sun’s first rays to the moment it dips behind the rooftops, the space adapts to the time of day: freshly made smoothies for vitamin-infused mornings; healthy lunches with a little fizz at midday; gourmet snacks with a delicious “ice cream and cookies” menu; and evenings of cocktails, champagne and DJ sets to celebrate the sacred hour of the French aperitif under the stars.
The ephemeral open-air setting offers a multitude of experiences not to be missed, with celebratory gourmet moments on offer throughout the day. Café Messika promises a season where the sky’s the limit, where you can take the time to savour every moment.
Everything in Café Messika is a nod to the Move collection. The space plays with arches and mirrors, floating and moving lights, and a central bar with curved lines. The whole space hums with energy, a jewel in and of itself. With art deco accents, the atmosphere pays homage to the Maison’s iconic collection in its entirety.
Echoing the Messika 2023 aesthetic, the Artistic Director has also distilled the setting’s colors into a beautiful play between red, blue and purple. The tones punctuate the space, with touches of color visible on the cushions, menus, porcelain mugs, and even in the bar’s cocktails. It’s a chic, gourmet, colorful vibration that serves to awaken the senses.
