ARTIFICE began as an accidental blog in Paris and has grown into a point of view that is decidedly irreverent about the world of art, culture and luxury. ARTIFICE 'at its best' happens when the world of luxury meets boho sensibilities.
Pikke Allen is a Writer, Brand Curator and Principal Consultant of her own luxury brand atelier. Her passion for all things French is a tribute to her dad, French teacher and a devoted Francophile. Growing up on the left bank in Paris was a great education and she later studied formally at UC Berkeley and Carnegie Mellon in Fine Arts.
Ms. Allen has been published in VINGT PARIS magazine, a top Paris blog as well as GIRLS GUIDE TO PARIS and her own self-published blogs that bring together the changing world of creativity and digital media.

I can hardly wait for the AMERICAN AIRLINES fleet to be complete! I have been traveling via SWISSAIR to Europe for the past 3 years now as I was totally fed up with the American Airlines experience. Perhaps things are looking up for US air travel!
