At Le Bon Marché’s initiative, luxury brands invited Martin Parr to create a series of fashion and still life images in an exclusive branded series, featured in the French department store’s eponymous magazine.

Martin Parr was given full artistic freedom to produce this 13-page feature – a natural choice, given that Martin had just shot Le Bon Marché’s advertising campaign. For this series, the British photographer orchestrated a Parisian banquet with some very special ‘Lunch guests’ in the iconic Parisian restaurant, Le Grand Véfour.
