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...
SHOPPING: NIKE LAB DUNK LUX HIGH

SHOPPING: NIKE LAB DUNK LUX HIGH

Revisiting classics seems to be the big trend since a year or so. After the Air Force One launched in a premium edition last fall, NikeLab just updated its Dunk High using their latest innovation. The 1985’s classic shoe was redesigned using less material for a more contemporary silhouette (noticeable in the toe-box and heel). Memory...
INTERVIEW: BARTON PERREIRA

INTERVIEW: BARTON PERREIRA

The luxury eyewear industry is mostly dominated by ready-to-wear brands (Prada, Saint Laurent,…) or international licenses (Ray-Ban for example). Just go to your local department store to verify it. It’s rare to find independent names capable to compete with them on an international scale. Barton Perreira is certainly the most prominent one. Founded in 2007...
SHOPPING: AIR MAX 1 ULTRA MOIRE

SHOPPING: AIR MAX 1 ULTRA MOIRE

Nike’s quest for more simplicity, lightweight products and innovation seems endless. Made with synthetic suede, laser-perforated, one-piece upper ( actually inspired by the 2006 Nike Air Zoom Moire), the Air Max Ultra Moire offers playful color and fabric contrasts while keeping very low key with mute textures. The sole has been completely revisited using less material while...
SHOPPING: GITMAN VINTAGE SHIRTS

SHOPPING: GITMAN VINTAGE SHIRTS

Gitman Vintage shirts are the epitome of the cool shirts. Part of the Gitman Bros family but only reserved for the cool retailers, the Vintage series offers all you can expect from a made in USA shirt (craftsmanship, excellent fabric quality) with a contemporary take whether is the print (often quite eccentric) or the fit (more...

SHOPPING: NIKELab ACG

Nike is redefining the future of sportswear one more time with the relaunch of its line ACG under the NikeLab label. Berlin-based designer Errolson Hugh, co-founder of Acronym®, an independent design agency focused on the unification of style and technology in apparel, was invited to join his creative force with the Nike design team. Using the in-house technology (Nike...
SHOPPING: 4 CLASSIC SCENTS

SHOPPING: 4 CLASSIC SCENTS

My personal tastes have singularly evolved towards sophisticated and unknown brands mostly because I’ve been wearing perfumes for quite some time now. I felt the need to explore new horizons. But with that being said, friends and readers have always asked me what to wear. So I’ve made a simple selection (all from Sephora and...
