I love living in London. But as a born and bred Parisian, I often miss Paris. It’s been nearly a month since I was last there for work and to reminisce about the motherland, I was looking earlier at recent streetstyle pictures from Paris Fashion Week.
It seems that everywhere I go, these days, is cold. I was in Marseille for work last week and thought, when I got off the plane, that I’d freeze before making it to my hotel. I didn’t. But I sure hoped I had brought a couple of extra jackets to layer up. Over the weekend, I checked out a few of my favorite e-shops to see if I could find a sturdy over shirt on sale to wear under my camel overcoat. Instead, I found two cool Japanese jackets on London-based e-shop Couverture & The Garbstore.
We started this blog -nearly six years ago now!- to write about entrepreneurs, independent designers and the heritage brands that inspire them. Today, we’re telling you about Chapal, one of those inspiring labels, a French company in operation since 1832 that specializes in quality leather and fur, and is known for representing the best of two worlds that are dear to our heart: utilitarian uniforms and French class.
I’ve been traveling for work more frequently, in the last year. I love it, but it comes with its load of sartorial dilemmas –the biggest of which being, of course, how the hell am I going to keep this suit and that white shirt looking crisp! To which you’d probably answer, that’s why they invented garment bags, and you’d be right.
We’ve been following Vasco Watch for a little while now. The brand -based in Bordeaux, France- specializes in the design and manufacturing of 24h watches, a concept that has always intrigued us. Since they recently launched their second collection and Kickstarter campaign, we thought we would tell you a little more about those rather unusual watches.
