This summer has been pretty hot and sunny in Paris and we’ve been on the hunt for the best sunglasses brands on the market right now. We told you about historic Parisian maison Lafont and vintage-inspired Pantos. Today we’re headed to Spain to tell you about Barcelona-based Alfred Kerbs.
If you’ve been reading Le club des douze for awhile, you know that we rarely feature sneakers. The thing is that I’m very difficult when it comes to casual shoes, and I don’t actually wear sneakers that often. I like sneakers that aren’t (or very minimally) branded, simple, well-made and have somewhat of a retro style. During the sales in Paris, I discovered French footwear brand Kost Paris, which offer a line of tennis shoes that perfectly matches the aesthetic I’m trying to go for. Finally!
Today is Bastille Day. If you’re in France like me, I hope you’re having a party! We’re having one tonight but decided to start the day chilling in Paris, having a long walk along the Seine. When I wander along the river, I sometimes almost forget that I’m in the city and for a moment I imagine myself on a harbor, looking at boats. And there were no better suited shoes, then, that the ones I wore this morning, a comfy pair of original Sperry boating shoes.
I heard that fellow French blogger Florent-Alexis Wessels Faustin launched a collection of made-to-measure suits and accessories but I hadn’t gotten around to meeting him to discuss his referral-only business, Confident Paris. Needless to say, I was very excited when he invited me to come visit his workshop (and apartment) in Paris’ 18th district. Just as I expected, his style was on point and I had to snap his picture and share the outfit with you.
