Matthias Geerts is an Antwerp-born DJ whose casual, trend-forward style and pulsating techno sets have garnered significant attention from fashion brands and the European club music circuit. A fashion week regular, you’ll likely spot Geerts surrounded by a crush of rotating street style photographers, attending various runway shows or DJing an afterparty (or two, or three). Geerts, who grew up a two-hour train ride away from Paris, recently relocated to the French capital to further his music and fashion career. Lauded for its eclectic architecture, sophisticated cuisine, renowned museums and, of course, fashion, there’s more to Paris than just surface-level beauty. 

Geerts reveals his top culture, food and fashion hotspots as well as his go-to underground party destinations for those looking to experience a different side of Paris in the 10th arrondissement and beyond.
