‘Despite her overconfident manner and lack of prior experience in luxury goods marketing, she has nonetheless managed to charm some of our hard-to-impress clients doing her short time at Savoir.

‘Call it bonne chance, or American ingenuity- I’m leaning towards the former- her results are impressive.

‘We hope that by extending her time in Paris, Emily will further the relationships she has already made, delve deeper into our culture, and perhaps pick up a few words of basic French.

‘We will work in conjunction with you on applying for a work permit on her behalf to prolong her time here.

‘We love having having Emily in Paris! But please don’t let her know that.’

Once in Paris, Emily is tasked with revamping the company’s social media strategy, but her new life is filled with intoxicating adventures and surprising challenges as she juggles winning over her work colleagues, making friends, and navigating new romances.  

The series is the brainchild of US producer Darren Star, best known for Beverly Hills, 90210, Melrose Place, Sex and the City and Younger, and was filmed in 2019 on location in Paris.

While the wardrobe has been headed up by Patricia Field, who created the famous looks for Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada. 

Netflix debuted the new series back in October, though it angered some actual Paris critics who dubbed the show as ‘cliche’.  

French commentators have slammed the offering for including seemingly every cliche trait about French people in the show.

Lucas Bravo, who plays Gabriel in the series, spoke with Cosmopolitan about how the show has been received by some foreign critics, and he thinks they have a good point. 

‘I think they’re right, in a way. We’re portraying cliches and we’re portraying one single vision of Paris,’ Bravo began. 

‘Paris is one of the most diverse cities in the world. We have so many ways of thinking, so many different nationalities, so many different neighbourhoods,’ he added.

Bravo conceded that, ‘A lifetime wouldn’t be enough to know everything that’s going on in Paris. It’s an entire world in a city. ‘ 

He also admitted that, ‘At some point, if you want to tell a story about Paris, you have to choose an angle. You have to choose a vision.’

Emily in Paris also stars Ashley Park, Samuel Arnold, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu and Bruno Gourey.
