During this “Parisians” tradeshows’ week, we did also send one of our 15,000 reporters on the road to go to Capsule in the center of Paris from january 21st to 23rd. On the menu, many new brands, some other we already knew about and many emerging trends to watch. Then we talked to all those… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
Today I am taking you for a ride at the Canal Saint Martin. For those who would not know, this canal from the 19th century is 9km-long. The canal was originally used to carry drinking water from The Vilette Basin to the Port de l’Arsenal (a Leisure port). It flows through the 10th and 11th… Read moreno validationand1 comment for this article.
Today we focused on acessories. We came to see what was up from Cuisse de Grenouille, a French acessory brand: nice ties, nice belts, and for the fist time a promising collection of shirts (japanese coton) and bags! We discovered a young brand called Léon Flam, who creates “Made in France” bags inspired from one… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
Second day at the Who’s Next. Yesterday night was full of twists and turns, then we slowly started our walk around ready to wear brands today (after drinking one two few coffees…). One could not notice a real new big trend for AW12 but a come back to authentic pieces (which is already effective). Halfway… Read moreno validationand2 comments for this article.
Here we go! 4 days at the Who’s next tradeshow. Today, we have focused ourselves on shoes, and we quickly noticed that hiking shapes are going to be a key trend of next winter. Same for lined shoes either declined in sneakers or boots. As for the fabrics, lots of brands are proposing a mix… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
I confess being partial for The Hill Side’s products. Firstly because they are making their products by hand in New-York, caring for fabrics and paying great attention to detail. Secondly because to me, they are the basis of a new subtrend derived from workwear, consisting in demystifying formal accessories such a ties or pocket squares… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
It has been a while that I have been looking for a winter coat, I finally found something suiting my tastes from Folk. A brand we’ve been following for quite a long time and which quality is more than reliable, undoubtedly a sure bet! My demands were simple: 1- a warm coat for winter. 2-… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
Long time no talk (I have been quite busy with the French sales these times)! Third item I have bought during the winter sales is this crewneck knit from Norse Projects. What’s cool with Yoox is: they always propose nice stuff you have missed from past seasons. The only trick is to dig the site,… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
The following piece is my second sales pick. I have been watching these trousers from Bleu de Paname for a long time. “BDP” as we call it, is a brand we like to quote in our French Truck. Because this is the kind of brand that has a lot of creativity, a real indentity a… Read moreno validationand2 comments for this article.
From today, I am going to show you guys my purchases since the begining of the winter sales. There is a complete outfit starting with this pair of Veja. It comes from the Indigenos collection resleased for AW10. I have picked the camel high version. Althought it might look a bit orange, their real color… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
