It’s a concrete jungle out there, so stay ahead of the pack. In the dark and foreboding Parisienne jungles there lives a shining star, an Indiana Jones of sorts the great urban explorer, Romy De Grijff. Romy seeks out and discovers the likes of the Emilio Pucci river, the Acne cliffs, Moncler Gamme Rouge ravine and the Ballenciaga boulders, the Saint Laurent Paris river and Lanvin lake, captured by Benjamin Kanarek and styled by Coline Peyrot for South China Morning Post. Romy is up for the challenge are you? Put on your mountain heels and begin the climb.
