This weekend was all about men’s fashion for me. The Paris fashion week for men brought me to the French capital once again. The Ann Demeulemeester show was amazing, the music was captivating and the looks were magnificent. The collection was less romantic than previous season and even though there were still some dresses in the collection, the graphic lines, strong prints and colors made it very masculine. I have also been a fan of the dip dye trend since it first started several years ago, I’m even a fan of the dip dying hair trend. Therefore the combination of the shocking blue and the dip dye rocked my boat.
Normally I don’t get the chance to leave the showroom but this time I was able to have a quick little walk around Le Marais. Such a shame that this was the first time, Le Marais really is a goldmine for shopping, eating and walking around. I discovered a cute little covered food market called Le Marché des Enfants Rouges (think a tiny Borough Market). Heaven for foodies such as myself.
Unfortunately I only have a good picture of the wall next to the market as I just had my phone. Just a few streets further (and only one street from our showroom) there are several shops, second hand, designer and high street. The best combination in my opinion. After a day of hard work, we always go to eat somewhere in the neighborhood. A few great places are Aux Tables De La Fontaine (great traditional french cuisine but not in the boring french way), Pizza Pink Flamingo (exotic pizzas and with great delivery boys) and Café Charlot (great for people watching).
