A Simple Blazer

The simplest blazerThis week I felt inspired by this man shot by Giuseppe Santamaria from the blog Men in this town during Pitti Uomo. And it’s a proof that the simplest blazer can look sophisticated if it’s properly accessorized. Here: a series of cuffs, including a Miansai ‘hook’ bracelet, a classic watch, a basic pocket square and a lapel pin. I like it!

Briston Clubmaster

Briston ClubmasterFrench watchmaking is experiencing a new wave and I’m loving it! Brice Jaunet realized that and after having worked for years for many of the biggest classic watchmakers, he decided to launch the brand Briston, last year. His signature piece is the Clubmaster: made of acetate, version chronographe, 3 hands.

Snickarbacken 7

This week’s interior inspiration is the coffee shop Snickarbacken 7 in Stockholm, photographed by Caroline Kurze for IGNANT. It also serves as an exhibition space and a concept store. Like often in the Swedish capital, it’s spacious, all white and minimalistic. Obviously, I love it! I especially like the balance between the severity of the light walls and waxed floors, and the warmth of the communal tables and dark wood chairs.

A Simple Black Sweatshirt

I’ve been following Philippe Gaber’s work for several years and it was about time I talked about him on Le club des douze. I’m sensitive to his philosophy (all the fabrics are natural and responsibly sourced, and the garments are all entirely crafted in Paris, at the designer’s workshop on rue Saint Maur). And to his designs as well, of course. They’re classic, simple and timeless.

Tweed & Gomina

A Loft in Brooklyn

Last weekend I discovered Jessica Barensfeld and Simon Howell’s loft in Willimsburg, Brooklyn, photographed by Freunde Von Freunden. A peaceful place in a busy neighborhood, the designer/photographer couple have created such a refreshing living space. They turned the two-floor apartment previously shared by a group of friends into a place that resembles them: cosy and creative. Brick walls, massive windows, wooden furniture and a frenzie of houseplants.
