As said few weeks ago in our AW12 trends review, corduroy is under the spotlight this current season! How wearing corduroy trousers properly? Here is a possible illustration. To build this outfit I firstly picked these Melinda Gloss corduroy pants (this brand is to be presented in few days around here). Then I wanted to… Read moreno validationand1 comment for this article.
A nice biker jacket may appear like a difficult item to find when you don’t necessarily have the budget to invest in leather. Or maybe you don’t care putting your money into cheap leather which cuts could sometimes be nice, but never lasts. Vintage is an option but most of the time jackets have the… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
In Lorient you can take the boat paying the price of a bus ticket. From the marina in the center you can go to Port-Louis in around twenty minutes. The boat sails by the shipyard with two impressive grounded military ships, breakwaters and sheds for birds. A little bit further can be seen the fishing… Read moreno validationandno comment yet for this article.
A collaboration involing 4 different brands can’t be more than a marketing ploy. That’s what can be immediately thought the first time you hear about this collab, and such a reaction seems natural with a title lining up all these brand names.

Actually it is kind of an exhaustive guide about what… Read more1 validationand2 comments for this article.

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 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.
