SHOPPING: ACNE STUDIOS EYEWEAR

SHOPPING: ACNE STUDIOS EYEWEAR

After years of producing sunnies occasionally, Acne Studios just launched its first full collection. The series revisits three great pivotal periods in the eyewear history with first the 30s with a few Art Deco styles, the psychedelic 60s and then the extravagant 70s with some very Emmanuelle Khanh inspired styles and also some classic Aviators.  The collection will...
SHOPPING: LACOSTE L!VE VINTAGE AD COLLECTION

SHOPPING: LACOSTE L!VE VINTAGE AD COLLECTION

This is such a brilliant idea: celebrating Lacoste fabulous ads from 70s with a series of printed polo shirts, t-shirt and sweatshirts. The result is a playful collection mixing perfectly the charm of the nostalgia with a contemporary touch. The collection drops April 20th.
SHOPPING: GARRETT LEIGHT SS15

SHOPPING: GARRETT LEIGHT SS15

The Garrett Leight collection is all about retro glamour and Hollywood royalty. The design, as always, is elegant taking cues from vintage styles but with a contemporary note. New hues have been introduced with a series of delicate pastels (pink, lemon, mint). You will find also some rich earthy tones (brown, dark green), that I personally...
SHOPPING: FJÄLLRÄVEN SS15

SHOPPING: FJÄLLRÄVEN SS15

I’m really loving the new Fjällräven collection. After seeing all these utilitarian and outdoorsy inspired jackets (Patrik Ervell recently), it felt natural to come back to the original “adventure” style. These four models – anorak, jacket, lite jacket, trekking jacket – offer different features (materials, fits, length) and functionalities. Their designs successfully embody a cool mix between urban and outdoor...
SHOPPING: LONDON DESIGNERS

SHOPPING: LONDON DESIGNERS

You certainly know by now how much I love London: Collections Men. While being the youngest of the Fashion Week circus, London encompasses a dynamic and consequent array of young successful designers including Astrid Andersen, Nasir Mazhar, Craig Green, KTZ, J.W. Anderson, just to name a few. To celebrate this new season, I’ve picked five designers from...
SHOPPING: JUUN J x ADIDAS

SHOPPING: JUUN J x ADIDAS

Juun J teamed with Adidas to celebrate its classic Superstar style. While I’m not particular fan of this lackluster celebration (besides the Adidas Consortium x DMOP Superstar model), these two minimalist reinterpretations (hight-top and low-top) are just perfect with the three Velcro replacing the original stripes and the updated silhouettes. Check them out below. Leather high-top trainers Shop them...
SHOPPING: PATRIK ERVELL SS15

SHOPPING: PATRIK ERVELL SS15

Patrik Ervell’s obsession for minimalism and textures reached a new level with his Spring Summer collection all inspired by industrial materials and interior design. The collection questions the notion of wearability when trespassing the frontier between industrial and fashion, furniture and clothes. The codes are all inverted, defining new parameters and transforming the body as a home....
SHOPPING: ACNE STUDIO SS15

SHOPPING: ACNE STUDIO SS15

What makes Acne Studio so special? Well, forget about the hype, the trendy imagery and the lovely packaging. Acne Studios is the most “realist” contemporary brand that I’ve ever bought. Everything is well-thought-out from the fabric choices, the fit to the price range. You feel tempted, flattered and obliged to get it. Acne epitomizes also very well this Nordic charm, a savant mix of coldness...
SHOPPING: PMW MFG BACKPACKS

SHOPPING: PMW MFG BACKPACKS

PMW MFG was one of my first street style coup de foudres. I found in love immediately with the design of Mark’s backpack (Ohayo Daybreak). It was rare (and still) to find nicely conceived backpacks that were not technical or completely crazy. Asa Nishijima and Mai Warshafsky, the two creative minds behind PMW MFG, are dedicated to...
SHOPPING: FRED PERRY x RAF SIMONS SS15

SHOPPING: FRED PERRY x RAF SIMONS SS15

Having a designer like Raf Simons, Dior’s creative director, design polo shirts and updated Baracuta, remains an anomaly in this industry where collaborations usually mean cheaper product for more money. Fred Perry and Raf Simons share a legitimate love for subculture and youth. Each collection has become less about revolutionizing menswear than making a visual statement and perpetuating independent...
SHOPPING: OLIVER SPENCER SUNGLASSES

SHOPPING: OLIVER SPENCER SUNGLASSES

It’s clearly the best time of the year. Hibernation mode is over. Soon we all will be on terraces drinking, chatting, and flirting! So it’s time to upgrade your A game with some classic shades. I’ve picked for you four cute retro styles from London-based brand Oliver Spencer, all very simple but with this Je ne sais...
SHOPPING: FRED PERRY LAUREL WREATH SS15

SHOPPING: FRED PERRY LAUREL WREATH SS15

Fred Perry’s Laurel Wreath collections are traditionally the crème de la crème of the British brand. Modern and referential, they combine heritage and urban influences. For this new season, the rules have been pushed a bit further with a monochromatic collection all made of dark blue with here and there some accents of colors. The...
SHOPPING: Mr MATTHEW T-SHIRTS

SHOPPING: Mr MATTHEW T-SHIRTS

Mr Matthew is exactly what I need right now after this horrendous winter: colorful and slim fit t-shirts! Nothing complicated or conceptual, just playful colorblock tees like I would love to find more often. Check them out on my eshop (and powered  by EastDane).
SHOPPING: EASTPAK

SHOPPING: EASTPAK

You can’t really live in Europe, and especially in France, without owning an Eastpak or being tempted to buy one. It’s probably the only cool luggage brand covering almost all of your needs from backpack to travel bags. I’ve been a big fan of their backpacks since ages. I’ve put together a small selection from...
SHOPPING: MARCELO BURLON

SHOPPING: MARCELO BURLON

In a few seasons,Marcelo Burlon managed to establish his name as a designer and create a whole new aesthetic, influenced by sportswear, street art and tribal imagery. Here are a small selection from my eshop presenting some of his classics.
SHOPPING: FRED PERRY x NIGEL CABOURN

SHOPPING: FRED PERRY x NIGEL CABOURN

Nigel Cabourn is an anomaly in the fashion industry. While being fairly unknown to the general public, he’s, at 63, far from being a newcomer. His own line, started over forty years, has attracted countless fans with his original aesthetic and established him as a highly respected fashion designer. Based out of Newcastle, Nigel Cabourn has...
SHOPPING: PONY 3M FLASH PACK

SHOPPING: PONY 3M FLASH PACK

Two versions of Pony’s Topstar, the Ox and the Hi Top, have been revisited with 3M reflective upper giving a slick and modern treatment to these classics. I personally love the grey style, completely reflective, as opposed to the white version (just the chevron was made in 3M). You can shop them on Pony.com
SHOPPING: TIMBERLAND HELCOR EXOTIC SERIES

SHOPPING: TIMBERLAND HELCOR EXOTIC SERIES

I recently stumbled across these Timberland Helcor Exotic 6-Inch boots and I’m loving them! Made with a premium leather (thicker and softer) and featuring a reptilian-skinned pattern, this new iteration is – of course – waterproof, abrasion-resistant, cold and heat resistant. The matte texture gives them a really chic look while the reptilian-skinned pattern catches beautifully the light. You...
SHOPPING: GRENSON SS15

SHOPPING: GRENSON SS15

Back in November I had the chance to meet Grenson’s creative director and owner Tim Little and chat about the brand, what it means to create shoes and revisit classics. Tim is truly committed to create beauty and simplicity. His new Spring Summer collection is here to prove it again with elegant new styles. First, the...
SHOPPING: LOUIS VUITTON - V LINE

SHOPPING: LOUIS VUITTON – V LINE

Louis Vuitton’s dedication to perfection and the art of travel is restless. The Parisian house just released a new leather goods collection, the V LINE. Made with innovative leather and exceptional attention to details (water-resistant, lightweight, versatile), the series was designed for the urban explorer. At the occasion, Louis Vuitton filmed two acclaimed talents, Japanese multimedia artist Ryoichi Kurokawa and American pro-skater Alex Olson,...
SHOPPING: RAF SIMONS SS15

SHOPPING: RAF SIMONS SS15

While these pieces are only the first (and quite limited) delivery from the Spring Summer collection, it seemed right to feature them now. Raf Simons reached a nice momentum with his last collections mixing his love for visual art and his never-ending youth celebration (pop and punk elements). After his collaboration with the artist Sterling Ruby, the new collection explores a more...
